This is bad for your clutch as it disengages without actually being pressed resulting in excessive and very uneven wear.jongallant said:Any reasons as to why this is a bad idea?
The way I see it, the car just drops out of gear... You need to apply the clutch in order to put the car in gear, but to take it out of gear, why would it be a bad idea?
This of course would only be done while braking.
I'm looking for a explanation. thanks!
lol, actually, its in my name. would it make u happier if i waited for the warrenty to expire?06Ex said:its just ridiculous trashing a new car if your trying to find a way not to use your clutch, your mommy and daddy need to use the money elsewhere**
"OH HEY GUYS, I FOUND THIS COOL WAY TO DO AN OIL CHANGE WITH NO OIL, BUT DO YOU GUYS THINK ITS OK??? CAN I JUST LIKE DRIVE IT WITH NO OIL JUST TO SEE WHAT IT WILL DO" --- Thats about how stuipd you sound asking this question about your tranny.DipshifT said:lol, actually, its in my name. would it make u happier if i waited for the warrenty to expire?
Ok, look, you can do it, and i will tell you this, the lower the rpm the better.jongallant said:I think most of you are missing the point of the question here. I was trying to learn about how a manual transmission works, and I was curious about a unanswered question I had. The whole point here is not to drive my car without the clutch, it is to find out if it is SAFE to drop it out of gear (into neutral position) without damaging the car (with no clutch).
Its about the same, just remember, everytime you push that pedal in, your wearing down the clutch, So in theory, yes its better to push it in, stop, put it it 1st, and wait until the light is green.jongallant said:Thanks for the replies!
On another thought, related to this topic... Is it bad to hold the clutch pedal down while stopped? Or is it better to put the shifter in neutral, and remove your foot from the clutch?
Is holding the clutch down at a stop considered the same as "Riding the clutch"?
