You'll all get a kick out of this, I can't drive standard yet I have a 2004 Mach 1 stick sitting out front. I have my father showing me how to drive it. I stalled it a dozen times today before getting a feel for the clutch and how to take off without stalling, bucking or chirping... I am able to shift through the gears easy and reverse is easy for me... Now I just need to learn to take off on hills then practice, practice, practice. Anyway, does anyone know if stalling will damage my clutch? If I don't get the clutch just right, it seems to jolt for a second and stall... or just stall... I immediately disengage the clutch though. Any pointers? I think the most difficult thing for me was finding the sweet spot on the clutch and understanding where to give it some gas without giving it too much. I dread trying to learn to take off on hills.
