Reving up the engine to pull off is not necessary

Don't revv up the motor before letting out the clutch to take off. It is a huge sign on your head screaming, "HI! I'M A NEWBY!!" Diesel motors in big trucks have plenty of torque at idle to take off. If you can't you're in too high a gear. You aren't in a mazda. just a note from a driver trainer, take it or leave it.


Don't embarrass yourself.

these trainers shouldn't be training
by: Anonymous

Well just who was it that trained these ' newbees' they have to have seen someone ie the trainer doing this or been told this is the way to do it. Biggest share of these so called trainers I have seen shouldn't be out on their own let alone training someone else
