This might be alittle of topic but i just got a 5 speed 09 legacy 2.5i and im still getting use to shifting. I know i mstill learning but everytime i change gears especially from 1st to 2nd i sometimes hear a clanking noise, im not sure if im letting the clutch out too fast of is omething is wrong.
and another thing is how fast should i release the clutch for a smoother shift. and should i use any gas before when the clutch is like 75% engaged?
It's tough because i commute to school everyday in a high traffic area andtheres alot of stop and go i just dont want to harm the car anymore than i should.
