That was my point. That and the fact that she just lets off the gas, then a second or two later pushes the clutch in to shift, then she down shifts without rev matching. Pretty much the worst manual driving instructions I've ever seen.

One of the main reasons I love manuals is to rev-match on downshifts.^

Yeah, if you're downshifting you should be rev-matching, period. If you don't know how to downshift properly, then don't downshift. I feel that little pain inside when I ride with someone who doesn't rev-match.

I used to tease my mom when I was younger when she'd go over a bump or pothole and say "ouch" and when I'd ask why should said ouch when it didn't hurt her, she would say she felt the cars pain, haha. Now that I'm older I can completely relate.

you can do it 2 ways:
1. depress clutch
2. put in neutral
3. blip the gas
4. put in gear
5. undepress clutch

the other way which saves ur synchro's
1. depress clutch
2. put in neutral
3. undepress clutch
4. blip the gas
5. depress clutch
6. put in gear
7. undepress the clutch

both ways have to be executed (after practice) within a fraction of a second. it might take u 5 seconds the first few-100 times, but eventually u'll get it, and will become automatic.

be safe, keep an eye on the road and dont lose ur attention on other cars when u practice
