If you've ever driven a manual shift car, then you're probably familiar with the clutch. It's the third pedal that you have to press to change gears. However, you might not know exactly what the clutch does, especially if you've only driven cars with automatic transmissions.
Do the clutch and gear lever confuse you?
This superb book / eBook explains the clutch and gears (stick shift) in detail could solve all your 'control' problems And all for less than half the price of a single driving lesson
Driving consists of 2 main elements:
a) Control - the ability to put the vehicle where you want it, &
b) Road Procedure - knowing where to put it + use of mirrors/observations and other theoretical knowledge.
Obviously, both elements are equally important but most driving books concentrate on 'road procedure' with very little consideration on 'control'. Certainly, to become adequate at control, it has to be practiced - this can't be denied. But a good clear understanding of the controls in particularly the clutch and gears will speed up the learning process considerably.
This book deals only with control and as such applies to every country worldwide
Items covered in detail are:
- How the clutch works (with diagrams) and how to use it correctly;
