E30 vs. CLK 430

I don't know a lot about the CLK 430. But I do know that it is a fast car.

A CLK challenged me on 16th and kennedy the other night for a couple of stop lights. The results were better than i expected.

I thought he would blow me out of the water but one light I got a head of him and beat him. This was probably due to my quick shifting and double clutching. I'm not sure why he was lagging behind but i managed to take him. The next run, he was a head of me about a car length until 80km/h and then 1.5 car lengths until 120km/h.

Wondering what the horse power is on those CLK's. It appeared to be a 2001.

Re: E30 vs. CLK 430

Double clutching and quick shifting don't go together. You can't shift gear quickly with double clutching by definition since you have to do twice as many steps as during normal shifting. Double clutching during upshifts is useless all together. I have no idea what you were doing but it was definitely not double clutching. Gotta love Fast and Furious for totally messing up people's minds about double clutching.

Look in the archives..all the way back, there should be a couple of posts that explain it in full.

double clutch

To my knowledge, the point of double clutching is to jump you up into a higher RPM range. That is just what i did, and it works. Thats all i know.

ok there is 2 "double clutching" versions
1. You press clutch 2 time before shifting.
2. When you accelerate, you just quickly press and release the clutch for that little push.

so which one are you talking about


btw: both of them useless.

I used version 2. I'm sure they are not ENTIRELY useless, otherwise there wouldn't be a word to describe that clutching procedure.

BTW, you don't use double clutching when you're accelerating.
Double clutching is this:

Clutch in
Shifter into neutral
Clutch out
Rev the engine up to proper RPM
Clutch in
Shifter into proper gear
Clutch out

Double clutching is for downshifting and was only neccesary in the 70's etc. when transmission's had no synchro's. This is useless for any modern car.

yea this is one of those stupid lines that came from fast & furious. just like "I got NAWS!" its not Naws, its N-O-S or giggle gas, bottle feeding, nitrous, etc. like was said before, double clutching is useless on new cars with syncros.

And to further add to this useless discussion...it's not even double-clutching on the downshift.

On the downshift, it's heel and toe....and you don't let out the clutch between gears.

However, it's quite surprising how many people have little to no idea of how to actually heel and toe in their car...on the streets even, much less on the track.


The only thing anybody learned from the Fast and the Futile is how many brain cells can be destroyed simply by watching a movie...
