Okay, so I was driving around with my friend and he gave me some constructive criticism. I will try to explain this the best I can.
When I accelerate from a stop here is what I do:
1) Put it in 1st
2) Rev to about 2K
3) Let clutch out until I hit the "sweet spot"
4) Once at the sweet spot I let the clutch out smoothly
5) Once the clutch is completely out, the engine RPM's are still at about 2K
All of this takes about two or three seconds
Here's what he said I should do:
1) Shift into first
2) Don't rev the engine
3) Let the clutch out quickly
4) Give it a tiny bit of gas at the end of the sweet spot so the car doesn't die
5) Then accelerate
When doing this, the RPM's are a bit below 1K when you start accelerating.
Which one is the "correct" way to accelerate from a stop?
