What? Tiptronics do not have clutches. All those are are autos tht you can manually select ALL gears not just first and second. Manuals are much more fun to drive but for racing autos are way mre consistant. With a high stall converter, shift kit, and a ring and pinion the auto will reign supreme. Double clutching is (or at least the definition I know) using the clutch to take it out of gear and into gear. It is also known as 'granny' shifting. But when racing you definitley want to be power shifting.
