First few tries, make sure you rev the engine in neutral with clutch pedal up position at very high rpm (about 6000rpm) because you are very fast in engaging the car into first gear before the rpm slowed down too much. Double clutch works great when down shifting from any gear.

I hope this is clear. Perhaps someone will chime in if I missed anything.
Ok, I get the picture... I'll make sure I'm not going too fast, so no need for the 6k rpm right away... thanks
