yeah you need to give it a little gas before letting out clutch. it wont jult if you do it smooth, it just takes practice, not to much and letting the clutch out slowly is what you want to do. and yes always push in the clutch when changing gears, whether its up or down. What i think you mean by feeling the clutch ingage is when you are letting it out at a certian point is when the car starts going a little, do not just let go when this starts to happen, lett it out slowly once you feel it start to pull

more control with a manual..especially in my evo and my 84 3.18i it makes the world of difference over an auto.

I am big time in the minority here with a strong vote for auto, for any type of car.

Re: AT or MT what do you like better

I hate automatics

only in a truck. ohv low torque band

mind you its bad there but its like not a big difference.

In terms of a car, an automatic makes it basically a non car

you cannot apply the engine to situation. just gas til it goes.


slow unreliable. I drive hours a day so it makes a big difference to me.

I would rather have a geo metro manual than a 350z auto. I would kill it around town.
