I can do it by very gently releasing the clutch but why? Bogging the engine like that is not good for it.

traffic jam LOL

well so far, i couldn't do the no-gas launch.

im still pretty new to the stick shift and working on uphill launches and being stuck in traffic bumper to bumper or simply at a complete stop

figured no-gas launch would be best for those kind of situations

Haha when I was learning I would use the e brake to hold me in place

I think the e-brake is a better option for not rolling backwards on a hill if you don't want to burn out your clutch...

KIA, I know how to drive it...just trying to get it down with uphill launches
i drove from PA back to my gf's place in another part of PA for about an hour...then i drove it back home which was another 1.5 hour

so i say im doing pretty good...and that was my first day of driving a manual in my life

jcbel, yeah i figured the ebrake is probably best for me...apparently my neighborhood is full of uphills..never realized that with an automatic hahaha
