Plz elaborate?

Is the driver behind at fault for moving forward before the driver ahead of them moved forward? That wouldn't be the case if the issue was a stall or such.

Technically you are not AT the legal stop yet. You are still in transit to said legal stop. stirpot.gif

Nope?  Is that presuming you lied, and it was just a "He said she said" situation, where its just your word against theirs?  With more people having dash cam/go pros, traffic cameras at intersections, security cameras on nearby buildings, other motorist/pedestrian witnesses, or computers in modern cars that can say how fast a car was moving at the time of the collision or just prior, its not as easy to get away with blaming the other guy.

Went to the school parking lot for a while and practiced starting up the hill. Didn't stall. Kinda figured out the point where the clutch grabs enough that you can let off the brake and give it a buncha gas to get moving without going too far back. Definitely rolled back like cray the first few times.

 

Gonna try doing it with the parking brake next time, but I'd rather just learn the hard way. Then again, it seems like the parking brake maneuver is necessary on steeper hills, so might as well learn it.


I honestly think I'm stalling because I just don't give it enough gas, which is kind of hilarious.

Past that point, you're just destroying the driveability/enjoyability of the car on the street aka you're in losing your license territory if you ever floor it. I wish there was a way to increase torque more than HP without sacrificing everything. I'd much rather get to 80 fast than be able to hit 120 someday in a street car haha.

I think what would make the most sense would be to learn to drive the car without trying to start in 3rd or stalling it while starting on a hill.

I see there's a new Honda Pilot. I'm thinking of the Elite model.

I like thinking about you dealing with the Honda service department.  Getting a ride in one of those crappy service mini-vans, car pooled with a bunch of randos.  Getting out of the van realizing your bespoke jacket in dat Dormeuil fabric has some stain from something a previous rider left behind.

Three points.
1. You should be in gear as long as possible approaching a stoplight. Down shifting as necessary. So if need be, you are in gear to accelerate out of danger. Or proceed if the lights turn green on approach.

2. In a manual car. As you come to a halt, depress the clutch, place the car in 1st. With the clutch down, and your brake pedal holding you in place. When the light changes, in a smooth motion.release the clutch, while shifting your right foot from the brake to the accelerator. The clutch point will hold you in the moment of brake to accel. And the accelerator will then pickup the weight as you completely release the clutch. Giving you a clean take off without stressing the driveline.
@stoplight heal and toe.also great uphill. I do it daily. (If a long wait, you can shift to neutral, and back into 1st as the left to right lights turn yellow, to be ready for the change)

3. If the driver does not leave a certain distance between your car and theirs, to allow for up to a foot rollback? -they are tailgating you. (The stoplight heal and toe does not roll back)
