Speed ​​adjustment is a technique used when shifting into a lower gear during deceleration and / or braking. With the correct application of this technique, the speeds can be changed gently, without sudden changes in the vehicle's center of gravity and "bumps".

In addition, speed adjustment prevents engine braking, which in extreme cases (cornering) can result in the wheels locking due to a sudden change in the vehicle's center of gravity.

Speed ​​adjustment procedure
- Accelerate and maintain a constant speed in third gear at 3500 / min
- Brake until the engine speed is suitable for downshifting
- Depress the clutch and shift the shift lever (2nd)

(!) if they released the clutch now, the transfer of the vehicle's center of gravity forward would be felt. This happens because the engine speed has dropped after depressing the clutch, and now increases sharply after re-releasing the clutch. Instead of releasing the clutch, do the following…

- Dose the throttle to increase the speed
- Release the clutch. If done correctly, no jerk will be felt.

It is not important to dose the gas perfectly precisely and increase the number of revolutions. And with a small increase in speed you will feel the difference, because it is better to have a small increase in speed than none. With experience you will become more precise.
