cant you just hold your foot on the break, then when the light is about to turn green press the clutch, put it in first, bring right up to the catch point then right as the light turns green engage the clutch to not roll and then move your foot to the accelerater or at least thats what i do

If you do this in a petrol car you won't have enough power at idle to keep the revs up and the car will stall and you will roll back. In a petrol to stay standing on a hill you need a bit of gas as well so that the car doesn't stall

And yet people prefer manual? Right.... lets not pretend that you're not driving manual to prove you've got a big dick.

Don't need manual to prove I have a big dick, my dick does that for me

You need to find the balance point and juggle your rpm.
Once you get past the speed the engine will lug, then you should be off the clutch asap.
Minimal wear is the only way to get maximum service life.
#91 - naiks (07/02/2016) [-]
Yep, much easier to do in a diesel since they idle with higher rpm and hence more torque
#129 - autoxx (07/02/2016) [-]
It takes less finesse.
You get better at the juggle with a sportbike.
The inline 4 has very little torque because of such a short piston stroke. That'll teach you how to feather the throttle.

I can't believe how dumb you people are. If you can't properly start a manual on a hill without resting on the clutch the whole time, you really have no business operating said vehicle. It also tells me you have very little knowledge about the inner workings of the vehicle. But, you know what, you're the one that's going to keep paying the mechanic to replace your burned up clutch every few thousand miles, not me. That, or you're just a bunch of trolls and I'm an idiot for taking the bait.
#30 - shameonapony (07/02/2016) [-]
As an ASE certified mechanic who has owned 3 seperate manual vehicles and only needed to replace the clutch in one because it was a used car

You're an idiot if you don't understand how you're supposed to start a car on a hill.

There's a difference between thinking your cool and starting it like a retard and doing it the way you're supposed too.

You can't pretend like you have any idea what you're talking about forever.

I recommend some water to hydrate yourself and balance out your sodium levels.

Seriously, I want to see you actually say it's okay to rest your car on the clutch on a hill while you're waiting to start moving again. I mean, if that's the case then why bother taking your foot off the brakes too while you're at it. If you can just drag the clutch all willy nilly without dramatically shortening its life span, then I guess you can do the same with your brakes too. I mean the principal between the two is the same right?

Do you work at a garage? If so can you tell me which one and where? I want to know so in the off chance I actually need a mechanic to do some repairs for me I can stay the fuck away from you.
#32 - shameonapony (07/02/2016) [-]
You clearly misunderstand the action being explained.

Since you are too stupid to understand the concept of how you are supposed to rest your car on a hill, maybe you shouldn't drive manual.

Look at all the text you're sending me, you know too much salt can kill you, right?

#33 - jdogtwoptzero (07/02/2016) [-]
No, no I understand just fine. I just didn't think they'd let any old clown get ASE certified. Then again, there are plenty of shitty garages and mechanics out there. I guess common sense isn't a requirement. Troll or not, I don't like seeing misinformation spread like this.

Hopefully anyone reading this realizes this is the wrong way to operate a manual vehicle. Riding the clutch will seriously shorten its life span. I'm out

I completely agree with you on all points. Don't let yourself get agitated by faggots who never drove stick in the first place
#64 - autoxx (07/02/2016) [-]
If they do that, I'd like to see the 'tards try to double clutch...

They'd sure never drive MY car.
Hell, it pisses me off when people sit at a light holding the clutch pedal in and it's only a little extra wear on the throw-out bearing.

Holy fuck, I drive automatic and even I know that using the clutch to hold still is awful for the car.

This isn't a preference thing. It's not like using two feet for the pedals where, you know, it's unconventional and not a great idea but you won't kill yourself. Clutch holding will burn out your transmission and you will wreck your car. It might not do it in that instance, it might not do it in a year, but if you use your clutch as a brake, you are guaranteeing that your car will be ruined when you try to sell it.

God, what pisses me off even more is that anyone would ever teach someone specifically to do this rather than teach them to use all the pedals effectively. It's like teaching someone they can drive through a stop sign without stopping if no one's there, or that the speed limit can be ignored when there are no cops. Yeah, these are the easy ways to drive, but they're not the safe ones, and using the clutch to hold the car is one of the most dangerous things to do. My dad did that when he was a kid, the car starting smoking and he nearly rolled backwards down the hill.

"Holy fuck, I drive automatic and even I know that using the clutch to hold still is awful for the car."

Wow, you simply know this... Gee that means you must be right about everything, this certainly isn't the sam circlejerk logic the sjw's or fat acceptance movement's like to use.

#122 - greyhoundfd (07/02/2016) [-]
Wow, it's almost like even though I drive automatic I know how to drive manual but simply prefer the other.
#123 - creator incarnate (07/02/2016) [-]
So, you if you 'know' how to drive manual have you ever blown a clutch then?
I never questioned if you knew how to, I simply don't care...
But claiming you 'know' something is simply not good evidence for proving that is the case.

I've never known it to happen with anyone I know, and since we all drive manual and are all taught to use the clutch for things like this (and tested on it for our drivers license) that would seem very improbable wouldn't it?
Or maybe it's just that we are actually taught the proper method to do it?

#124 - greyhoundfd (07/02/2016) [-]
What's next, I shouldn't be trusted about how the steering wheel works because I "just know" that you turn it to change the direction of the car? You don't fucking hold your car using the clutch, it's awful for it and can ruin the car.
#39 - anon (07/02/2016) [-]
Considering a majority of my drive home is uphill, and I drive standard, my clutch should of been burnt out about 2 years ago. And it doesn't slip even a little.

P.S; Either drop a transmission and take out a clutch to see how it works (like I do, every. fucking. day) or shut the hell up.
#36 - anon (07/02/2016) [-]

Learn to use all three pedals at once, I don't want to smell your burning clutch.
