    it means having the clutch engaged longer then you should while giving it gas. basically slipping the clutch for longer periods of time is not a good situation and will shorten life of clutch

    No, to move you need to add some gas while on the clutch or else you will stall (especially uphill). However there becomes a point where the vehicle starts moving, and remaining on the clutch is unnecessary and starts putting strain on the clutch

    You do slip the clutch a little on take offs and a little more on a hill start.

    What you don't want to do it continue to drive with the clutch halfway engaged.

    lol you must have never driven stick

    in first gear you MUST ride the clutch somewhat....you have to get a feel for the engagement point (different on every car)

    some situations require more clutch than others...hills require more

    wat?

    In that situation, you start the vehicle while pressing down the brake. Remove whatever parking brake you might have on.. THEN you SLOWLY start to release the clutch in 1st gear, and when you can feel it start to grab, you gradually remove pressure from the brake.

    Basically, you need to remove braking power as your engaging engine power via the clutch. Once the clutch is fully engaged, revv it up or whatever you want.

    OR when you learn how to drive, you just let off the brake release the clutch and give it gas all in one motion.

    You can hold down the clutch as well the gas at the same time and not mess up anything at all once the clutch is fully engaged. This is what you see people do when they have their car in gear, but want to rev their engine. It doesn't mess up anything. However, if you come up off of the clutch a bit to where the car can now move while the throttle is pressed and you continue to pull off this way without releasing the clutch fully then this is when it is said you are riding the clutch. You want to come off of the clutch as quickly as you can within reason. Too fast off of the clutch with not enough gas will cause the car to stall and shut off. Too much gas and coming off of the clutch quickly will result in you spinning tires and bolting off. You have to find that happy medium. What I do when pulling off is rather than holding the throttle down at say 3,000 rpm and then letting out the clutch, I bump the gas pedal the whole time I am releasing the clutch to prevent less drag with too much rpm's.

    this

    also it always happens a little in first gear for me at least, but my clutch is hard

    As far as I understand, no. When you have the pedal pressed down you are separating the two clutch discs. If you had it in neutral they would be connected and spinning together freely. The wear on the discs happens when you are halfway between engaged and pulled apart, they are touching but they aren't spinning together.

    no to both,

    "riding" is when you are in that in between stage of releasing the clutch and adding throttle, it occurs when you are keeping slight pressure on the clutch and not fully disengaged.....every time you start you are "riding the clutch", the trick is just minimizing the time you are doing this.

    If you ride the clutch you will burn it up, xtreme hit it pretty well. However it is very bad for your clutch and while replacing them cost wise isn't that bad. It can be a pain in the ass to fix however. So be gentle on her and lightly exchange the clutch to gas ratio brah

However, if you come up off of the clutch a bit to where the car can now move while the throttle is pressed and you continue to pull off this way without releasing the clutch fully then this is when it is said you are riding the clutch. You want to come off of the clutch as quickly as you can within reason. Too fast off of the clutch with not enough gas will cause the car to stall and shut off. Too much gas and coming off of the clutch quickly will result in you spinning tires and bolting off. You have to find that happy medium. What I do when pulling off is rather than holding the throttle down at say 3,000 rpm and then letting out the clutch, I bump the gas pedal the whole time I am releasing the clutch to prevent less drag with too much rpm's.
    If I'm correct, doesn't this still put wear on the throwout bearing over time? I mean, it is inevitable when driving stick . But excessive holding on the clutch will wear it faster.





    cliffs:

    "riding the clutch" is when the pedal isn't pushed down all the way, but isn't all the way out. aka holding it in the middle.

    When you are in gear and driving with the clutch pedal pushed down. <-- riding the clutch.?

    You will have to ride a little on first gear and more when you're starting on a hill. Just let go of the clutch when you get going.

For the soldiers who fought back & made the ultimate sacrifice. Today, tomorrow, years from now, we will remember.

    If your stopped the throwout bearing shouldn't be getting any wear even with the clutch held in. If your rolling with the clutch held in it will be spinning against the clutch splines. I'm not sure if that's even that big of a problem though. Most people replace the throwout bearing when they replace the clutch, and a clutch will wear out long before the bearing usually.

    From what I've gathered, it doesn't do a whole lot to anything because the clutch is basically not a factor at this point when pressed all the way down because basically it's like you are in neutral. People rev their engines like this all the time. Sit in one spot, clutch all the way down and in gear and no issues once the clutch is all the way down and engaged. I've never had to change a clutch or any bearings from doing this my whole life and I've always owned manual cars. I could be wrong with wear and tear on bearings, but like I said, I never had an issue. I know for sure it doesn't burn a clutch disc because if it did, you would smell it instantly.

    No, that's how u prevent to ride the clutch. For example, say you're uphill. If you're in first and clutch is engaged so the car stays in one place without braking or adding gas.
