someone wants to play so I downshift. Can I go say from 5to 3? oR do I have to go down one at a time. I know it also depends on speed. Can u guys shed some light please? Thank u
Covered by others already, but if I were you I'd practice rev-matching. You can downshift from 5th to 3rd (or from any gear to any other gear) without it, but it will be a lot smoother and gentler on your drivetrain if you learn the technique.
