Just a quick question on shifting..
Hey guys, sorry for two dumb question threads in a week but not even sure how to properly search this question.
So I have driven manual cars for years / drag raced at tracks etc.... Anyways my question is this is sporadic and doesn't always happen but shifting up I sometimes have to lift twice to get it to engage the next gear. I've noticed if I press up on the gear selector without pulling the clutch it will 'prime' (probably a horrible choice of word for this) it for the next gear. Meaning I'm in 3rd wanting to go into 4th if I lift up on the gear selector I can actually move it up without shifting but then to shift I pull the clutch and press up again. (First time there's movement to actually push up but if I tried to press up again its solid and can't)..
So I've tried playing with how much I pull the clutch lever and press up.. different rpms etc.. Anyways sorry if this is a stupid question, but hopefully its better than a CeeBee question.
