The issue I am worried about is downshifts, I would like to rev-match, for quick, clean downshifts and clutch life. There is no possibility of my team using an electronic throttle, therefore I can not "blip" the throttle electronically.
My idea is when a downshift is needed, I send a signal to FULLY disengage the clutch electronically, then when the engine RPM reaches what is consider matched, I send a signal to shift.
Would allowing my engine to rev while the clutch is fully disengaged damage the clutch? Also, how is important is rev-matching? We already replace our clutch after a week of racing, would not rev-matching be that much of an issue?
