uh...drviing along.....push in cluch, go down a gear on the shifter, let go of clutch = downshifting to slow down. rpms go up yes, but it's also slowing the vehicle down.
wow,that was kinda rude...he is new at this. we are trying to help him out. if your wanting to slow down just a little you can coast for a second then down**** one gear, all while letting the clutch out slowly, just practice doing it, you will get the hang of it
