I only do it on upshifts myself. I prefer to clutch on the way down to give smoother compression braking.
what cookeetree said.
somtimes, when i feel like being naughty, i down shift two gears and drop the clutch while i enter a turn, then i use the throttle to keep the back tire spinning as i go through the apex, it scares the people driving cages when i do it on the freeway onramps.
