I was just curious if it's bad for the car to have the clutch in all the way and rev the engine at the same time.

Thx

no its not bad. In fact that is how you are supposed to put your car into gear.
What's bad is when you are driving a manual and "riding" the clutch while slowing or coasting.

Yeah, that's actually good practice, known as "rev matching." It keeps the strain off the clutch when you re-engage. And I suck at it in the tC much more than other cars I've driven.

What the hell is rev matching or whatever??? can someone point me to a guide or give me shifting advice...thx
when you take a car out of gear.....the transmission and engine will be spinning at different RPM. To avoid wearing the clutch, you can bump up the engine RPM to the appropriate level and let the clutch out, i wont bother to explain it any further as its something you must pracitce on your own (if you dare!). - t

Yeah, its good practice... but it does seem hard with the drive by wire set up in the tC. The throttle doesn't seem to respond as well to quick taps of your left foot as it does with a cable throttle car. Just something I gotta get used to I guess
