Alex says his dad was told by the Italian guy who sold him his Maserati that he should always double-clutch--downshift as he slowed. (Alex's dear old dad happens to be Leonard Bernstein). Now Alex wants to know if this is a good idea for all cars. Turns out it's not really necessary on syncro clutches, but he's probably not doing any harm. Tom and Ray say they’ll call this “Bernsteining the Clutch”.
