I'm not too sure about your "downshift" suggestion. Downshifting at high revs will cause a braking effect
Unless you are WAY down (say under 1500rpm),
you can cause a spin on a really slick surface.
Putting my car into 1st gear and disengagin the
clutch with my R-foot OFF the throttle
spins the rear tires on black ice.
As MicahO and others have said. Precise rev
matching is critical.
