Rev matching is having the engine rpm's where they will want to be when you release the clutch in the new lower gear. Speed and gear selection determine the change in rpm's that is required. Blipping is just that and requires considerably less skill and effort.

You want to help keep kids safer as they start driving... force their extremities to be 100% engaged in controlling their rolling missile. They won't have time, or the physical ability, to tweet or text while behind the wheel.

Sorry, but I still don't get the difference. Blipping the throttle and getting it right on target consistently regardless of speed is not easy......how is rev matching any more difficult?

I think the confusion we're experiencing is not much more than just a misunderstanding of terms. When I think of throttle 'blipping' I think of what drivers do when they're heeling and toeing. I think of blipping as stabbing at the throttle and immediately releasing the throttle. To me rev matching is not stabbing at the throttle and releasing it but rather pressing the throttle and bringing up the rpm's to where they will want to be and holding that rpm as the clutch is being released. if your thinking is that you blip to different rpm's for different conditions then you are doing what I consider to be rev matching. Many manual drivers simply stab and release the throttle any time they are down shifting no matter the speed or rpm's and consider that rev matching.

Thanks, that explains why the misunderstanding. When I blip, I am rev-matching as I am making sure to complete the gear change before the revs drop. That's why you wouldn't be able to tell I had downshifted.
