I've been practicing using the manual clutch offline and it seems that it helps alot going into corners. I'm able to brake a little later due to the engine helping to slow me down. I noticed during the Club races last night using auto clutch that if I didnt let off the brake, the engine didnt help me slow down. The down side to using manual clutch (for me) is on starts I could stall if I'm not careful. Anyone know of any other disadvantages to using manual clutch?
