rev matching is used for downshifting. When you go from 4th to third fast, the rpms will jump, instead, let off the gas, push the clutch in, rev it up to the point where the rpms would fly up to, then let off the gas and put in to third, let off the clutch, all in a relativly swift motion :)

im not sure how you do shit like this upshifting though. I don't think there is anyway around scratching into 3rd while shifting fast.
