No, rev matching is bringing the revs up to where 'they will want to be' when you release the clutch in the new, lower gear. Blipping is a poor substitute for rev matching but is considered acceptable when heel/toeing.

p.s. If you ever drove a car without synchromesh you would learn that rev matching has to be more accurate than just blipping the throttle. Of course, today with all manual transmissions being synchronized blipping has become adopted as rev matching because it requires less skill.

Blipping the throttle accomplishes the same thing. When I blip the throttle you would never know I had downshifted. Now if you were talking about double-clutching.......it would be a more accurate statement

I'm presuming an '06 R53 qualifies now as an old classic.

Why can't they just leave us alone?!
This statement would carry more weight if it wasn't for the fact that I know you are at least a part-time paddle flapper!

That was me last weekend on a drive in Hocking Hills, except I was being chased by an STI.

If you're happy with blipping you'll really be happy with the results if you strive harder to come as close to matching the revs as possible instead of blipping to just get in the ball park.
