Hello friends, wish you a happy New Year ! I hope you can make a new New Year resolution at :) Long live free education !
I get it.
ohw well
i've always been told to release the clutch and hit the gas at the same time, why is that? to me it looks more logical to first release the clutch, then hit the gas. or does the engine not have enough power to keep running when the clutch is engaged without adding fuel?

Nowadays, kids will ask, what is a clutch pedal?!
They need videos like this in US military tech schools. I would have learned a HELL of a lot more about the equipment if they did.

what's the name of the program you made the clutch animation?
I just like old westerns, leave me alone.
Thanks for this, I'm learning to drive in my father's manual car and wanted to get a picture in my head of what's going on.

Automatic vs Manual Transmission Clutch, How does it work ? 1 day ago   07:47

Which is better: Manual or Automatic transmission? This debate has been present for the last seven decades. Manual and automatic transmissions are completely different technologies, which use different configurations and principles. One is based on a simple gear pair, while the other is based on a planetary gear set. One uses a torque convertor, while the other uses a clutch pack. We will do a logical comparison of these technologies in this video.
