This could be an ignorant question' date=' but I noticed on the record run video some downshifts he is using the clutch, while other times, it doesn't [i']appear as though he is. What is the reasoning behind this on a sequential transmission car? Is it to give the car an extra 'kick' or something? I know when it was dirt still you used to see them hit the clutch to kick the car around a corner, for example, but why on tarmac?

I don't know how directly it translates to cars with sequential + dog box, but on motocross / road race bikes it seems most racers don't clutch when they shift up, but many do when they downshift. I know on my RMZ450 MX bike, the few times I tried to downshift with no clutch it either didn't work, or it was really harsh.

Interesting. I was wondering, since I posted that about half way through, I noticed it appears as though he was using the clutch on every downshift, not just some as I previously thought, that makes sense. Thanks

Yeah, that Juke is ugly as sin, but man is it ever cool with all that "R" stuff in it. Really cool video though. It's like high quality car porn.
