On the one hand, what could be easier, the clutch is the first, the clutch is the second and forward. When seconds are counted how to avoid errors? Gear shift.
We continue to publish articles on control techniques for two-wheeled missiles. Today we will pay close attention to gear shifting.
On the one hand, what could be easier, the clutch is the first, the clutch is the second and go! But on the other hand, when seconds are counted or, having driven onto a slippery surface, a completely logical question arises - what to do, how to avoid an error?
Let's start with the simplest, clutch and first gear - this will be considered a constant constant. Throttle all the way and now the tachometer needle approaches the red zone … Let's get started. We will not squeeze the clutch, we will overheat and burn the engine at such speeds in one race. You can use the clutch, but only slightly press the lever. This is from the series “prevent the passenger from hitting the helmet on the pilot's helmet”, that is, just to soften the switch, but since we are driving on the track without a passenger, do we think that we have lost him? We got distracted …
Here the tachometer is already near the red zone … We put the toe of the left boot under the gear shift foot and press it a little to the top, but not strongly, but just to feel the emphasis.
Discharge gas (but not completely close the gas), close the handle by about a few millimeters and at this very moment raise the sock to switch. And instantly full throttle. That is, you need to work out the moment of synchronization of raising the toe and dumping the gas.
We do everything quickly and again open all the way. And so, until all transmissions are over …
We train until the technique is perfected to automatism.
Attention! If you do not use aggressive acceleration and your tachometer lives in the middle of the revolutions on the shift, do not use this method, the load on the gearbox will be very large, with powerful acceleration, do not use the clutch
So, we believe that we have already learned how to switch. But this is up, but how can we go down? DO NOT REDUCE GEARS IN THIS WAY! On the technical side, this is the same process as switching up, but you can get many surprises, painful and unpleasant. Let's talk about this in more detail.
First, the physics of what is happening. We are driving in 4th gear, let's say 260, and we need to go down to 150, this is the second. It is necessary that for 150 km / h the speed of rotation of the motor is equal to the speed of rotation of the wheel. If we shift down 2 gears quickly, the wheel speed becomes less than the travel speed, that is, we get a wheel lock (in the absence of slipping clutch). It hurts. We ALWAYS use the clutch! But we do it competently. So, we have the 4th gear, when switching to the 3rd revolutions will increase somewhere by 2-3 thousand.
So it is these thousands that we need to add to what we have at the moment. Squeeze out the clutch, add rpm, release the clutch and voila!
Clutch and rev up.
We brake further and perform the same manipulation, but one more gear down. We do everything quickly, we raise the speed by gas circulation. That is why there is so much gas re-gas on the slide when it stops. If on a dry and hot surface small mistakes are forgiven, then on a wet road it is definitely not, therefore we train this manipulation only when there are prerequisites for this. And then we always go like this !!!
This technique applies to everything that has a gearbox and is mandatory.
We are for safety!
