You're driving in third gear at 30 mph. One block away the traffic light turns red. When approaching the red light you:

A. Brake and downshift to second gear, first gear, then come to a full stop.

B. Brake and downshift to second, then come to a full stop.

C. Brake while staying in third before come to a full stop.

D. Shift out of gear and coast to the light in neutral while braking.

D if im lazy
B if im less
>>
>>22707360
Option C. Except depending on conditions I'm likely to just lift off the throttle until it's clear I need to slow down with the brakes. I assume if I'm idling along in 3rd there's no real reason to downshift to 2nd unless it turns out the light turns green before I get there and I'm ready to start speeding up again before coming to a stop.

Down shift to second and let compression slow the car, use the brakes only at the last to stop. Coasting in neutral is a great way to get fucked by a wild Stacy as you struggle to ram the car back into a gear so you can take evasive action.

Why the hell would you switch into neutral ever? I don't care if it's a big open highway, bumper to bumper traffic, or a tight city (surprise we have those too, and that's about the worst place be stuck in neutral).

why is everyone acting like it takes effort to shift from neutral into the appropriate gear? Even in the off chance you have to accelerate quickly, it takes zero brainpower or physical effort to press clutch in and put it in gear

B that way im still in gear if I need to do something also it helps slow the car down. When I get to about 10mph slower I go into neutral and come to a complete stop.

I have only ever downshifted for 1st a handful of times that were unique scenarios. That gear is meant JUST to get the car rolling from a full stop
>>
>>22707360
>driving in 3rd at 30mph

So pretty close to upshifting to 4th.

>one block away light turns red what do

Dry weather/good conditions: stay in 3rd, come off the throttle, combine engine braking and normal braking. I'll drop out of 3rd into neutral once I'm under 1.5k rpm and come to a stop with brakes.
Snow/ice: as above but include downshift to 2nd and drop to neutral (or clutch+1st) around 1k rpm because I'm practically stopped by that point anyway.

So... B or C depending on road conditions.

>>22708678
Yeah, I do neutral at long stops, too, but usually just expect the TOB will last until I need to do the clutch anyway. Stometimes I wind up leaving the stick in neutral if it's a fluid situation and I'm not sure which gear I'll need to grab next, but I can't fathom letting the clutch out in that kind of situation once it's already in.
>>
>>22707376

I really don't know I rarely work on em. Some boomer just told me that. Far as everything else you're right about what you're supposed to do. I personally don't engine brake because I'm shit at driving em desu with you though. I should actually practice more. I'd I ever come across a 500 dollar shit box with a stick I'll probably buy it and drive it till I inevitably wipe the clutch.

Clutch in and go to neutral at like 20, braking to a full stop.

Downshifting to 1st is pointless on my car most of the time. It's like 3k rpm at 20mph, and the engine braking is harsh.
>>
E. I put it in neutral then brake unti the car comes to a complete stop. Then when the light turns green I put it in 2nd gear.
>>
>>22707360
Either C or D depending how far the light is and if i'm going up or downhill. Usually C though.
>>
>>22708996
I only use 1st in my truck when at a stop since idle in 1st is 1mph. 2nd has more than enough torque if you apply throttle gently to get you going anywhere above 5 mph.

>>22707360
E: floor it to build some boost and get fuel enrichment, keep foot on gas and put clutch in to hit redline and make loud ass gunshot, slam on brakes and barely stop in time

the only time I ever downshift into first is if I need to go under 10 mph but don't have a stop coming up

This MOST of the time.
If I'm turning right I'll pop into 2nd right before reaching the intersection if no one is coming in the upcoming lane.
But really I can hold 3rd until about 15-20mph before it starts slipping so I usually only pop into 2nd if the light changes green before then, or if someone in front of me moves into a different lane.

3. You turn at a very populated parking-allowed city road with cars on either side, blocking your vision of oncoming traffic. You do your best to be safe but someone is on your ass anyway after you turn.

Stay in 3rd until rpm drops to the lowest point before its about to stall, put it in neutral and coast the rest of the way

In same scenario and higher speed and gear id brake while simultaneously downshifting to lower gears without releasing the clutch. That way there is no unnecessary wear on the clutch and if you need to react fast you just release the clutch and go as opposed to coasting with shifter in neutral

>Brake and downshift to second gear, first gear, then come to a full stop.
Allthough I usualy don't use the brakes above 20 mph, I just keep distance, shift down and let the engine do the braking.
That saves nerves, fuel, wear and is safer.
>>
Probably a toss up between C or B. I'll almost never downshift into first unless I'm crawling in traffic or in a parking lot. I've mistakenly driven up Lake Shore Drive on nights when there were Cubs games and I needed to get to a concert venue in the area.
My transmission also just does not like downshifting into first unless I'm going like 5 mph.

>>22707360
option B unless the car I'm driving has a supercar-like extra long first gear, in which case, option A
I've been taught in driving school that it is better to always be in gear so it's always possible to accelerate and get out of the way of something coming from the back, ruling out option D but also option C since staying in third implies I'll clutch in much earlier
In most cars, first gear is used exclusively to take off from a stop, as such there is no need to downshift to first when coming to a stop. I've been taught to stay in second unless I'm not sure if I have to stop or not, in which case I should downshift to first to prepare for he eventuality to stop and take off immediately after

You'll get the hang of it eventually. Watch 18 wheelers and how they try to just keep rolling along in gear at a constant speed instead of alternately jabbing the gas and the brakes like every stacy in an suv. The key is to be smooth, which of course is not as easy after all the faggots, niggers, and jews destroyed the concept of a cable-driven throttle and exchanged it for electronic impossibility.

I cruise in 6th gear at 30mph
>>
in this very specific scenario the only reasonable option to me for any car is to downshift to 2nd and engine break until i need to come to a full stop or i accelerate again
if it was closer or any faster id just coast in neutral lightly braking
>>
What are benefits of going down the gears exactly? Just less wear on the brakes?
>>
>>22707360
D But if the lights start to change rev match to 2nd and continue.

>>22714219
Better control of the car should you need to accelerate or brake.
If the engine dies for whatever reason you will come to a stop instead of crash into something.
>>
Throw it into neutral and roll out the door like GTA
>>
A is pointless. Downshifting to 1st is not a thing unless you're essentially crawling.

B is a decent shout. Increases engine braking whilst also keeping you in the optimal gear at these kinds of speeds. Definitely my pick.

C isn't terrible although it would depend on the gearbox. I've driven some cars that would not like going so slowly in third. If the lights change you're probably dropping to second anyway.

D is obviously a stupid choice. I've done, we've all done it. Well, I've never shifted into neutral at 30mph and just braked. But I've probably gone into neutral at a higher speed than I should.

Your doing something wrong if you're changing pads before clutches
>>
>>22714829
>50k miles, never had to change pads or clutches
if you have to engine brake to save brake pad wear at traffic stops, then cars with auto transmissions should need brake pad changes every year by your logic since the engine constantly transmits torque to the wheels as long as you're in D
besides brake pads are cheap compared to clutch replacements

holy shit are u motherfuckers still arguing abt how to come to a stop? a stop. we're talking abt a stop. not a downshift gap shot. a stop. not a shift to fourth at 85 to pass an autocuck. a stop. we're talking abt a stop.
>>
If I'm approaching a red light I stay in whatever gear I was in and only put it into neutral when I hit ~10mph and I know I am going to come to a stop. Otherwise if the light turns green while I am still slowing down then I simply downshift into the appropriate gear. Sure you could downshift through every gear as you slow down but unless you are driving a heavy truck this is totally unnecessary. Im almost convinced the anons who say they do this are afraid of or don't understand block shifting.

None of the above, i clutch in and plop it in first after ive stopped.

My car is carburated so i dont get any cool engine braking fuel gains, only loud backfires.

No its perfectly fine but you save on fuel if you engine brake cus the car doesnt have to stay at idle.

Google it for more in depth info.

America has all of that shit too. And my area has hills. This is why I shift the gears in the proper way all the time

On any American car, 1st takes you up to at least 25 mph. I drive in a hilly area so frequently I put it in 1st if im not going at least 15 mph.

Cars are not For retards like you. Ive floored it away from many dodgy situations.
Like yesterday, I had to make a right turn, but there were slowfags in the right lane, so I floored it past them, and then I was at the turn before I could slow down, so I hit the brakes and gas at the same time as I turned the wheel, and let off the brakes and I drifted around all of the slowfags onto the road without having them hit me. And another time I needed to make a u turn on a busy avenue, so similar strategy but swing the car harder and using some countersteer. Daily thing.

Do A and B imply heel-toe downshifting or do faggots downshift without throttle?

>You're driving in third gear at 30 mph.
4th gear, or maybe 5th on level ground

It depends how big an American "block" is and how far away the light is but

E. None of the above:
> Come immediately off the gas pedal, burning 0 fuel and gently engine braking up to the light
> Stay in current gear if the light is far enough away to warrant it
> If the light is closer and I'm approaching too fast, downshift to 3rd or 2nd (if really close)
> Roll up to the light with no pedal input at all engine braking and burning no fuel the entire way
> Brake the last 20m and clutch in around 1k rpm

> first gear
Bruh don't downshift into first while moving. Not unless you're on a huge gradient and need the power or something.

>D. Shift out of gear and coast to the light in neutral while braking.
