Transcript of How to drive manual
Being able to change the gears manually lets you change the torque on the wheels depending on the speed at which you are traveling. How To Drive A Stick Shift By: Andrew Jung
Public Speaking Driving a stick shift is a lot more fun than an driving an automatic car.
Being able to control the torque to the wheels allows you to do things like drift, power slide, fishtail, and do burnouts. Emergencies: It is very important to know how to drive a manual car in the event that you are in an emergency situation and need to drive another car. Brake Gas Clutch How to drive with a clutch: To accelerate, you press the clutch in with your foot and put the shifter into first gear. Next, you slowly let the clutch out until you feel it engage, then you press the accelerator with your other foot and continue to fully let the clutch out. The hardest part is balancing the clutch which is different in each car. How to shift once accelerated: Once you are moving, you need to shift gears constantly to maintain speed so the engine does not stall or over-rev. The point at which you shift varies in each car. It's more of a sense of feel, rather than a specific RPM. To shift, take your foot off the gas, press in the clutch, move the shifter to the next gear, and then let the clutch out and press the gas to accelerate. How to downshift: To downshift, you simply do the same as before, but instead of shifting up a gear, you shift down a gear. This is also known as engine braking.
