:| Nuh-uh. I rev match the majority of the time, looks after the clutch mate, and smoother changes :)

Though i have seen some chav'd up Nova attempting such a method in slow traffic at like 4k revs which i found quite amusing
Oh I thought you meant revving purposely like mad whilst changing gear with the clutch depressed which they do :lol: rev match is fair enough.

Ugh happening again for me :( I did a wrong gear change (3rd to 5th) and after that it started happening! So time to disconnect the battery once more :cry:

the car is kind of meant to rev while changing gear(not a massive amount just a slight bit).. its to stop the fuel valve closing and then reopening.. the idea of it is to increase fuel economy. thats the basic long and short of it
