shifting is not all about WHAT you do, its HOW you do it... which is something you cant teach. its not to say, ok as you let off the clutch and you feel the clutch start to grab, hit the gas. its not just letting off the clutch its how far and how fast you let off the clutch. its not hitting the gas, its how hard or how soft you hit the gas. there is no set quickness to let off the clutch and hitting the gas. its just something you learn by trial and error.

maybe if you tell us what part you suck at, we could try to give some pointers. use detailed words to describe those parts you suck at too.

you could watch them as they release the pedals to see when your reaction to the gas should occur.

Nah....just learn the hard way and drive alot. At least you will have fun in yo car.

Rythm

Its almost a rhythm thing. If you have no rhythm or Rhythmically challenged you may never learn. If you do have rhythm then it will just take you some time and practice. Concentrate on whats going on mechanically with your tranny and the point where the clutch disengages It might help to make engine noises while you drive.. Haa

I did that. I'd sit in the car, put my foot under the gas pedal so I wouldn't flood it. and work the clutch and my pretend gas pedal. I'd make the engine noises and just shift gears sitting in my driveway. As far as real preactice, jsut find a back road. Pull off, go through the gears, put it in neutral, stop, do it again.

alright you guys are helping you really are. ill try to explain what i suck at.

well the reason i suck is that i learned to drive stick on my dads f150 pickup, and the clutch he has in there is a replacement because the first one got burned out. so anyways, this replacement clutch is really screwed up and weird to drive with.

im really not clear on WHAT you do when you shift gears. im guessing that as youre going along, foot on the gas, and you want to shift you:
1. let off the gas
2. push in the clutch (all the way?)
3. shift
4. let off the clutch quickly
5. hit the gas again

i think i have been keeping my foot on the gas some while the clutch was engaged and im guessing thats not what you do..

my questions are:

1. should you be totally off the gas the whole time or do you start giving it gas as you release the clutch?

2. do you always push the clutch all the way to the floor?

thanks everybody!

Depending on where the catch point is on your clutch, you may not need to but just to be safe, I push it all the way in. You go into 2nd a lot like first. Give it some gas and realse the clutch a little slower. The rest of the gear, off gas, clutch, shift, off clutch, gas.

Making engine noise helped me. Once I started catching on good, I practiced "passing cars" and my car suddenly had vtec when I passed a car while sitting in my driveway.

for learning and casual driving dont release the clutch quicky at all.. slowly half release it while at the same time ur pressing the gas(release until half way up then keep it there for a sec until the car gets momentum) this will allow the carto get moving slowly but nicely so now u can slowly realease the rest of the clutch and because uve allready got momentum your car wont or shouldnt jerk around like crazy or stall :)

yup. "feather" you clutch and gas after you go into the new gear. for example, switch from 1st to 2nd. slowly let the clutch back out, but at the same time, slowly push the gas in. the concept behind that is a little like rev matching, in that you're bringing the engine speed back up as you engage the next gear. this way, the car remains smooth and doesn't jerk.

I've been driving manual cars for 10 years and I still get the jerks once in a while. Although, when I'm with a pretty girl, I try to be as smooth as silk.
No matter how much we explain this to anyone, it still takes getting used to in your own way. I think everyone drives differently. You gotta take everyone's advice and just drive man. Just drive.

sounds like you lost a race or something, sometimes, only sometimes, do I get just a little bit nervous before launch, and I suck through the first two gears. It helps me to relax, and pretend it's just another pretty day outside driving for fun

That's funny sispeed, i usually rev or give it a little more gas whenever I see a cop...one time I was sliding through wal mart parking lot, filming a race movie for school, and I got a cop's attention...he wasn't happy with me...

Have a read of this thread on PA. It goes through double clutching and the like, and while probably not a definative guide, definatly a decent resource.

http://www.preludeaustralia.com/foru...ad.php?t=28607

But like has been said above, practice, and sit in the car and make revving noises.

Actually, when my car was in the crash shop, I'd sit in it in the empty workshop and practice my heel and toe while making engine noises.

sounds like your only problem is your supposed to let the clutch out SLOWLY instead of FAST like you said you were doing


this mostly applies for starting in 1st gear and doing the 1-2 shift: try to let the clutch out at the same rate that you get on the gas. this should result in a decently smooth transition

btw..

starting at the beginning of 1st is when you let the clutch out the SLOWEST!
1st-2nd: a lil bit faster
2-3: lil bit faster
3-4: pretty fast
4-5: fast

FYI... Pressing the gas pedal while car is off will not flood the engine. That's only for carburetors as they function by throttle springs and vacuum hoses. Fuel injection cars, with the car off, theres no power going to injectors so it isn't opening.
