How to heel-toe double clutch downshift in a classic British sportscar

Many of the classic British cars I drive have worn synchros, it’s simply a fact of life with classic cars. Double clutching while downshifting makes downshifting even a tired transmission a breeze. In the video below, I explain this technique so that anyone new to vintage transmissions can navigate the gears with grace.

Double-clutching has become second nature for me, and if you are unfamiliar it might seem confusing at first, but will rapidly become second nature for you too. Here, I’m driving a 1967 MGBGT which has a new Ford 5 speed transmission. I use the technique shown on all Bugeyes (and on all cars I drive) to prevent wear on newly rebuilt transmissions and to help preserve old ones! Double clutching works equally well on worn modern transmissions as well!

Where and how you position your foot will change depending on your shoe size and position of the pedals. Make sure your foot doesn’t accidentally slip off the brake when trying this –for obvious reasons!
