How To Drive Clutch Car at Tower Hill Sports
After getting yourself more familiar with the controls of a manual transmission car, the following step is knowing how to shift to and drive in first gear. This is often the most tricky part of manual driving lessons, especially for new drivers of manual cars (a lot more so for individuals who have exclusively driven automatic transmission cars). You're also going to experience stalling the vehicle since you're only finding out how to get the vehicle into 1st gear. If that does occur, don't worry. It might get a bit bumpy, but that's fine because stick shift vehicles will be beyond able to take a couple of false starts and sudden stops. Even though you might not think so, manual vehicles are even more robust and durable than you think. Now, normally, when you're having stick shift driving lessons, this is the way a driving instructor or facilitator at a driving school will coach you to get the vehicle into first gear. Before turning the engine on, ensure you have the manual shift in the neutral position and your feet in the correct position - left foot flat on the floor, and right foot stepping on the brakes. Turn on the ignition, then press your left foot on the clutch till it is all the way to the floor. Make sure to disengage the emergency brake if you haven't already pulled it up. Take your right foot off from the brake and gently press down on the gas until you get to an RPM of 1500. Once you get there, keep your foot steady on the accelerator. Over a period of 7 seconds, gradually release the clutch pedal. Be sure to bring up your foot from the clutch as steadily and as gently as you can. When you sense the bite point on the clutch and have the wheels rolling on your manual transmission car, you'll know you've done it perfectly. Then, after you've fully taken your foot off of the clutch, begin picking up speed by pressing down on the accelerator pedal. Keep accelerating until you arrive at 2500-3000 RPMs, then you can start slowing the car down. You slow down by, first, pushing down the clutch until it reaches the floor. Release your foot from the gas and onto the brake pedal. Always remember: you should ALWAYS push down on the clutch before the brakes. When the brake pedal is pressed all the way to the floor, you will have the manual vehicle at a complete stop. When you get there, put the gear shifter to neutral and pull up the emergency brake. Afterwards, you can then take your feet off of the clutch pedal and brake.
