Like 2fast4u said, that isn't considered riding the clutch. That's feathering the clutch which allows you to take off smoothley. Riding it is where you leave your foot on the clutch pedal causing partial engagement while you are driving which may allow it to slip.cusco said:Okay, When I step on the clutch bring it to first. Release the clutch alittle bit till the car starts to move. I don't give it gas. How Bad is it to my clutch. I do the same when I reversing out slow.
What he said! I remember my dad used to tell me not to try to keep the car in place with the clutch when on a hill, when I was learning to drive stick on our family car back in 1988, Peugeot 305 :naughty:.wdb said:It is okay to ease the clutch from disengagement into full engagement. In fact it is the right way to do it. It is emphatically NOT okay to continue to ride, feather, or otherwise allow the clutch to slip beyond the time it takes to smoothly engage it. Example 1: sitting in traffic on a hill and using the clutch to keep the car in place == BAD. Example 2: using the clutch engagement to control your car's speed while reversing == BAD.
