PLEASE dont ever try double clutching. what it is is you put the clutch in, then go to nutral, then let go of the clutch,then press the clutch back in, then go to the next gear. its the dummmmmbest thing you could ever do, and F&F is the GAYEST ricer movie EVER

"Double-clutching was common in older cars and is still common in some modern race cars. In double-clutching, you first push the clutch pedal in once to disengage the engine from the transmission. Then you release the clutch pedal and rev the engine to the "right speed." The right speed is the rpm value at which the engine should be running in the next gear. Then you push the clutch pedal in again and lock the collar into the new gear. At every gear change you have to press and release the clutch twice, hence the name "double-clutching."

Bascially, you won't need to worry about it in your modern,street legal car. Only older cars, trucks, and racing transmissions are cars in which you need to do this

I swear if I ever see Vin Diesel I'm going to punch him in the face for that movie. That's why I'm going to the gym three days a week before I get the chance.
