Hey
I shouldnt do this but as I am in this game so far for a couple of months I still dont know how to brake properly (I was trying a lot of techniques)

Manual clutch:
I dont want to be the fastest.. I want to have the best real feelings, but I dont know how to brake with manual clutch - if am I braking with clutch engine wont help me with braking and I have longer brake line... but I dont want to brake without clutch, it seems unrealistic... dunno there :confused:

I hope I explained my question clearly :)
Many thanks

breaking with a manual clutch isnt like doing it in a real car. ou don't hold the clutch in for the entire braking zone, only when you change gear. that way you still have the engine braking working for you.

I just cannot associate the engine sound and gear up/ gear down... for example 0:07 - he is changing gears without clutch? or 0:33 - he is changing gears without any drop of pedals? :confused:

A lot of race cars these days can go up through the gears without using the clutch. You do however NEED the clutch when downshifting.

first time I heard this, interesting
does this only goes for cars with paddle shifts or with a stickshift as well?
