The best way to improve and smoothen your corner entry is by matching engine rpm to rear-wheel speed with a short rev, or blip, of the throttle before the clutch is re-engaged in the lower gear. We are all capable of this, and the reasons for mastering it are numerous. Your passenger, for instance, won’t bounce off your back with every bad downshift. Your clutch will also last longer, saving you money and hassle. What’s more, your slipper clutch will not just last longer, its feel will stay consistent throughout the clutch’s life. Also, as you gain confidence in blip downshifting, you’ll find yourself more often in the correct gear for good exits, and embarrassing yourself less at trackdays by not skidding the rear with every downshift. Lastly, you will be able to downshift at lean angle.
