From what I understand with the syncros in todays cars all double clutching does is destroy your shifting times.....
You are correct! Double clutching a modern synchro gear box is as useless as a choke on an EFI engine.

The Miata guys go on and on about double clutching, but then, most of them still think the MG was pinnacle of automotive excellance.

i use double clutching to get it into first gear and second gear easier. my shifter wont go into first at all unless im stoped or at 1 mph. so what i do (say coming to a light that just turned green but ive already slowed way down and traffic is behind me) i put it in neutral, foot off the clutch, rev, foot on clutch and shifter into first, foot off clutch.

double clutching has its place. if you're racing, never double clutch an upshift. i almost always double clutch my downshifts, matching revs of course. i usually don't double clutch when i'm heel-toeing, but sometimes i will do both (double clutch and heel-toe).

when done properly, double clutching a downshift when you're rev matching will barely slow your downshift time.

no, it's not necessary. at all. i know this. it also won't hurt anything.
