Re: Clutch control on start

Surfing on youtube, I casually watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g59P3bfyP-Y

I noticed the guy gives "blip throttle" instead of "steady gas". What's the better way between these two?

Re: Clutch control on start

Thank you for the answer. 1. for your car and engine, it sounds like it's probably normal, but that doesn't mean you have to do it that way. you probably have to either add more gas or let out the clutch more slowly (if not both - i don't know how quickly you're letting the clutch out) to launch wit...

Re: Clutch control on start

Hi all, I have some new questions. 1) Is it normal that I have to let the clutch slip a little more with a/c turned on? I had to stop on hill and I had to rev about to 1500 rpms to start. 2) Does giving a little gas on clutch releasing while starting downhill cause any harm? Thanks for your replies.

Re: Clutch control on start

Thanks everyone for your replies.

I'm more relaxed about the clutch and its control, and I have to say a big "thank you" to the entire forum and who replied. I will try to partecipate actively to this community.

Re: Clutch control on start

Thanks for the replies. I'm in Europe but I usually travel in the US (every two weeks) for work purposes. I googled and found this forum casually. I like to improve my stick shift skills. I'm aware EU and US have different culture on almost everything, cars included. But stick shift is the same on a...

Clutch control on start

Hi everybody, I'm new to this community, I'm posting here because I think there are a lot of stick shift veterans around. I bought a new car, a Fiat Panda 2009 1.2 LPG with 60 HP. It's from a while that I own this car; and I have a question about the clutch control on launching (or start). From what...
