A buddy of mine taught me to drive a business electricity rates manual a long time ago but I never ended up buying a car with a manual so I never really learned completely. Anyway, I'm looking at cars with manual transmissions again so I've been watching how-to videos and what not. Here's the thing:
Every video business gas suppliers I've watched says you need to come off the gas completely when changing gears. When I learned from my friend, I definitely did NOT do this, yet I was easily making good, smooth shifts between gears. I let the gas off some, but definitely not completely. I even remember him saying that the thing he had the most trouble with was upshifting while the car was moving and he was surprised at how easily I was picking it up. My biggest problem area was launching the car smoothly, but upshifting seemed very easy.
So which is it? Do you need to completely let off the gas or not?
The car I learned in was a Civic, and I'm currently looking at the Subaru BRZ (200hp, 6 speed), Nissan 350z (250+hp, 5 or 6 speed) or similar, if any of that matters.
