I know that in the near future I will need a new tranny. The synchronisers are gone on 2nd and 1st gears. So far, its drivable if I dont push it. But the day will come that it has to be replaced. Its my only car for now so I need to get the replacement in hand before its needed so it will be a one day affair to swap it out.
Anyone out there know of an MT with realatively low mileage that might be available real cheap?

The quicker you double clutch, the more smooth the transition will be. With practice, it only takes marginally longer than a regular downshift. It should all happen very quickly, certainly less than 1 second.
Just takes practice, not unlike learning to drive a manual transmission in the first place. I could hop in your car and downshift into 2nd gear at 55MPH with no grind.
Anyway, just saying. I know there's value in having things that work properly. It's just funny because I double clutch even in the cars without grind now.
