How to drive a Manual Transmission cars

how to control half-clutch

I was not good at doing half-clutch operation when starting a car.

I did it well a few time by chance. I asked a friendly instructor to practice half-clutch many times when other cars may not disturb me, and it went fine at that case.

But onece I went on a street, the engine often stalled by my mistake at turning right and left corners. Then I gat to be panic.

Indeed the clutch went well with all concentration and the slowest operation, but on a street, I was very neurvous. Every street seans like running people, children riding bicycles, and crowded shops came into my eyes, and that made me so scared.

When I heartily think that;
"Woo, I'm driving in this familiar street!!"
I came strained and lost my concentration.

Then I became an empty even at instructor's voices, and made mistakes again.

After I got the driver's license, I still have fearfull feeling when starting stickshiftcars.

I thought I need to get over half-clutch before dealing with gears and hendling stearing wheel.

When I bought my first car, I practiced half-clutch day afeter day. Finally I have got the point of half-clutch operation.

Those hard practices gave me a chance to write the stickshiftcars' driving manual.

By the way, we sometimes recieve emails which contains Book's impressions and thanks from our readers. Noticably many mails from women drivers in these days. Here I introduce some of them.

Now I'm going to driving school. I can't operate clutch well,so often the engine stalls. I love driving it's self so I want to improve my techniques by the manual booklet and DVD soon. I will try to prove that a woman can control a stickshiftcar. I'm looking forward to receive the manual.

<<A few days later >>
After seeing DVD and manual booklet,It makes me so fun to drive a stickshiftcar. If I'll have any question, I'll send a e-mail to you. Thank you.

>> Female/Osaka
I give this manual booklet to my hasband and let him read it, He said "It's interesting". He love sports cars and enjoying Heal&Toe and other techniques. I want to try driving like him, and going to circuit with him some day.


>> Female/Aichi
I read through the booklet today, at first I practiced with images of the half clutch in my mind. I got a driver's license which is limited to automatic transmission car at first time. Then I switched to stickshiftcar's license after short practice at driving school when I was 33 years old.That is because I had to drive trucks and vans of stickshift on my work, I usually drive my car only for shopping near home though. It was too short practice for me to get over the poing of halfclutch. When it comes to driving on streats,the engine stalls time after time. Especially I often mistake clutch in panic when a car is waiting beheind me.I lost my concentration and have only fears.

It passed several monthes without driving a car. I thought it is not good to leave my driving skills as it is, and I searched any information on the internet. Then I found this site and I tried this booklet with a little doubt that it gives me any improvement. I read the booklet through as soon as I download it. I thought some of them is already in my mind, but I never tried them before, so I practiced as it said soon.
"What? It's easy to doing halfclutch?"
It was actually easy for me to catch the point which had made me so wary before. Even I can start a car smoothely at a steep slope. One day my hasband said at the next seat that it's fine for me if I could start the steep way without side break. Then I could do in easy way. I tried many times,and sacceeded all time. He looks wander why I get over the clutch operation in short time.


...Those voices from readers are a symbol of the result which the booklet gives.
Here I will tell you one point to master stickshiftcar in short time. The most important stage of halfclutch is the timing to end a halfclutch. If you can catch the timming, you rarely make the engine stall. But nobody tells you the timming in right way, as far as we know. Most of the readers tell us thanks at this timming.

We can show the deteils with illustration in easy way.You will catch the point soon.
