    I prefer to rest the heel on the floor - acts as a pivot so you can control the releasing of the clutch and not throw it easily.

    Correct procedure. Release acc, let engine brake. Gradually depress brake to slow down speed and then clutch in before engine knocks. Brake before stop line.

    Taken from the book, haha!

    still wrong lah... if he at 60km/h most likely on 4th gear. official correct way is to drop to 3rd then 2nd together with foot brake and engine brake, then clutch in before engine stalls. since you stopped, apply foot brake, then you can free gear and release clutch and pull handbrake.

    But I at 60km, coming to a stop, release acc then brake a bit to slow down. No change gear unless turning corner lor. Next time got chance, try n see how.

    Wah all of u sound like InitialD drivers, drop the gear here and there...... For me just take MRT and maybe learn to fly a plane, no gears to drop except the landing gear.

    I bite my toe more easy to get hold of the biting point. Still got to use to it, some time didn't step it right, hard to control clutch. Practise make prefect, right? Test date mid July, just nice.
