How to drive stick shift
i would pay you $2,769.00 per hour! for 20 lessons
When changing gears. Let off the gas all the way, then fully engage the clutch. Now switch gears. After that let off the clutch. Once its fully out begin applying gas
Clutch has to be completely down, foot off the gas. Shift to 2nd. When releasing the clutch (after shifting to 2nd gear or higher) you don't have to find the sweet spot. Just take your foot off the clutch, then start giving it some gas. Eventually, you'll start to do both (clutch release & gas) simultaneously because it will fill more natural.It's amazing that you say I should have a school or teacher because that is my passion, teaching. I've dreamt of being a teacher since I was 3 or 4! Now, I only have 1 1/2 years remaining for my bachelors degree in teaching chemistry. Thank you for the compliment. - windowlicka
I don't know why I thought the comments were the instructions. But if you go and read the real instructions first, they are very well put together and will not confuse you. Great Idea! - vuesablan
This was the greatest explanation I've ever read. You should totally start a school. You would be a very good teacher, plus there's not enough of these schools around. But first, please explain more, when you are switching from 1st gear to second, does the clutch go down completely or just to the "sweet spot"? Also, does your foot need to be still on the gas during this? Thank you. - vuesablan
I really like how you go into detail there. You really should consider starting a driving school or just your own blog about driving and let me know. Thanks! - vuesablan
