ok here goes, i am getting 2k2 accent this summer and i need to learn to drive stick <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
i have no clue how......hopfully my friend will help me but i have some questions first
1.when he drives (Probe 91) he never lets go off teh clutch imidietly..alweys slowly which results in ......hmmm.....soft grinding. he says it will stall if he lets go off the clutch all the way(dead start)
he just started to drive stick recently so is he right? is there any truth to that?
2.when i brake i need to push the clutch first then brake right?

i got about 7 to 9 months to learn to drive stick ....think i can make it?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

you can make it out of first gear, then you can drive a stick. It's kind of like that one game Othello, minutes to learn but years to master. As far as the clutch goes, the more your on it, the quicker it will wear out, and no you don't have to push the clutch in when you break, only push it in if you are down shifting or coming to a stop and putting the car in neutral.

When your coming off a dead stop you should let the clutch out a little slower than normal or your car may stall or do some like bunny hops.

Ahh Hell just rev it up to 5k and you can let go of the clutch as fast as you want!!

No but, like the Chief said, if you can get outta first, you're set.
There'll be a little play before it catches, once you feel the car moving, let go slowly and give it a touch of gas, once your set take foot of clutch. Then when you wanna shift to 2nd, clutch in, shift, and let off clutch,... pretty simple after that,...

As for stopping, no you don't need the clutch in first, unless you're downshifting,... or heel and toeing <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> anyway, use brake pedal and when the revs are about 1k, put clutch in and put in neutral.

There's a webpage on shifting techniques, I'm at work, so I don't have it on me,... but I'll try to remember when I get home. Unless someone else will post it.
It's more for advanced shifting, but it gives ya a good read, and heel and toe techniques,...

Actually if you do a search, on "shifting" or "Heel and Toe" You should find it.

Hey Big Al. We should make a forum just for you to post questions in, lol. So your getting a 2002, nice. Sticks aren't that hard to drive just let out the clutch and give it some gas at the same time. A good place to start is gravel roads and or parking lots.

Eh Doc, I wouldn't say so on gravel road, if he peels out, he could scratch the crap outta his car with throwing rocks up in it, but a parking it a good place. If you can find a place that has hills is the best. Cause those are a little tougher.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

Chief Indica,

That's the way I learned and I never threw gravel all over the car. It simply allows the tires to spin a little if you are on the pedal too much. Chips in the paint are alot better than hitting another car. Big Al's luck isn't too good.

Yea, I forgot about his luck, it doesn't seem to be real good, with cars that is.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

well, i figure the best way to learn is to really just practice by urself (both just u in the car...and just ur car in a large empty space!) get somebody to show u how to do it..and aybe try it with them and have the help u..then just think about it and figure out what ur doing wrong...then when ur all excited about it again, go try it by urself. if ur still not getting it, repeat the process. then when ur good enough..just do it over and over...ie drive ur car everywhere ur goin <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> at least thats how i learn best.

also..learn2.com (http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1448530&a=10874640&p=46214589)helped me out. my dad tryed to teach me, but then once i read that and thought about why i couldn't do it..it was easy ..oh, and the accents seem pretty easy to drive <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
