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.
>>22707360>You're driving in third gear at 30 mph.no i'm not what the fuck who drives in the wrong gear
D if im lazyB if im less
>>22707360Option 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.
>>22707360Let the engine brake reduce my speed and use brakes as necessary, go to neutral once rpm hits 1k.
>>22707360Sometimes I do A. Most of the time I do B. I almost never do C. I never do D.
>>22707360D, of course. We're talking about 30mph.
>>22707360lift, brake, shift to neutral when i'm below 1k rpm. so basically c
>>22707360Downshift no brakes, engine brake through the gears until very slow, into first, brakes on. Like it should be done.
>>22707385I do D on nearly 50mph too tho
E. Shift out of gear, and rev engine to show off how cool I am to the girl walking down the sidewalk.
actually all 4 depending on the situation
>>22707360G. Shift out of gear, rev and bounce off redline to impress NPCs, double clutching at green
>>22707360Downshift to second and floor it, I’ll show that red light for daring to try and stop me.

>>22707360Down 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.
>>22707360Honestly I've never tried to rev-match into first. It's locked out unless I'm going like 5mph so it would be kind of tricky and redundant

C because no risk of drivetrain damage and the car burns less fuel decelerating vs idling
>>22707523C isn’t safe in case you have to accelerate in a pinch
>>22707415damn, this is a good point. too bad i'll probably never drive a manual again now that i bought a car with CVT. not because it's better or anything, just because they're getting rid of manuals
>>22707524true, you should hold your car at optimal launch rpm at all times

>>22707535Rev matching is hard in my car if you're not breaking hard, and most of my experience is on track at high rpms
>>22707360I'm in a hurry so I'm going 60mph, I then attempt to revmatch going from fourth to third but accidentally get it into first gear, immediately sending my pistons into low orbit.

>>22707360Probably D, I only do B when it looks like the light could change to green. A bit surprised by all the people doing A, I only go down to first if I have to pull into my garage or a parking space or something.>22707411ackshually it's a 1.8 inline 4
>>22707360shift to 4th and blow through the light
>>22707553> what is heel toe downshifting
>>22707580If the light changes to green I'd rather be in second than slowly accelerating from third or shifting from neutral. But that logic doesn't apply in OP's scenario since he said the light just turned red and you're a block away.
>>22707360C down to about 1400rpm, then either clutch in and brake or downshift if the lights change.
>>22707360E. See the light change to yellow two blocks away and speed through it
>>22707587AKCHYUALLYC is fine as long as you keep the car in gear for as long as possible.
>>22707360If I'm lazy: C until it starts to vibrate then clutch inIf I'm not: B minus braking
>>22707574>>22707577eurofag here, rev-matching downshifting in bumper-to-bumper traffic, I almost never use the brakes anymore.Still got more practice to go to make it completely smooth.
>>22707553Why 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>inb4 searching for gearif you've been driving stick for more than a few days, finding the right gear won't take any effort
>>22708043So you don't lug the engine
>>22707360D.I'm not wasting the precious energy from the fuel I bought with my own money go to waste on friction in the breakpads that I also bought.
>>22708069That's what the clutch is for, unless you're just going to be sitting at a stop for long to throw it in neutral instead.
>>22707360Just brake Kek. Autochad here.
>>22707564nigger who the fuck asked or cares
>>22707360CI want that engine breaking as well.
>>22707524That's true. I didn't consider that.
>>22708069You're not going to lug an engine, engine braking from thirty.
>>22707360B 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 30mphSo pretty close to upshifting to 4th.>one block away light turns red what doDry 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.
>>22707360D all day why shift more than necessary? hopefully it turns green before i come to a stop so i can shift back into second and keep going.
D. Why did anything but D?
>>22708043Long red lights. It's bad for your throw out bearing.t. mechanic thats only driven customers standard trans so I just hold clutch too lol
i will stop and the light will 100% be red?capproaching a light and it may turn green before i stop?b most of the time, i rarely downshift into 1st
>>22707360I do A,B and C all the time interchangeably. Never D. you never want to be unable to deliver power to the wheels.
>>22708678Yeah, 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.
>>22707376this. I sometimes downshift when I think the light might change.
>>22708718I 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.
>>22707360hitting first gear is something I will literaly only do if I am FORCED to come to a complete stop, other wise im slipping 2nd everytime
>>22707360desu I would shift into 4th (maybe even 5th depending on the distance) and let it coast in gear until rpms drop to ~900, then shift to neutral. Additionally use the brake pedal as needed.
>>22707360The downshift into 2nd is big poopoo on my trug unless im going fast so ill go with D
downshift to 2nd then engine brake, easy acceleration if the light turns green before you get there
D because I use racing pads and need to keep them warm.
>>22708704Is that an LCRx? What caliber? how do you like it? I have an LCR in 38 but I hate not be able to shoot single action
>>22707360D on straight and downhillA up steep hillB up moderate hill
D but I revmatch into first at about 20
>>22707360E. Let the busdriver do his job without interfering
>>22707360E. Slam on the brakes with both feet while turning the wheel violently to the left
>>22709199kek op btfo
>>22707360>D. Shift out of gear and coast to the light in neutral while braking.This is really the only answer, everything else is not necessary.
>>22707360>downshifting into firstwhy? Rev match downshift into second, then brake and come to a full stop
BClutch 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.
>>22707360Either C or D depending how far the light is and if i'm going up or downhill. Usually C though.
>>22708996I 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.
>>22707360E: 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
>>22707360I just start braking ~200 feet before the light and stop.Why the fuck would I need to move my shifter?
>>22707360E. Close my eyes, let Jesus take the wheel.
>>22707360E. Stay on the fucking gas until you actually get close to the light.....Fuck people like you.
>>22707524>in case you have to accelerate in a pinchname one single situation that i would need to plant my foot to avoid an accident
>>22710651the situation where you are an actual car enthusiast who actually enjoys driving and hooning and opening up on the road and the incredibly unlikely situation where you don't deserve death for larping as a car guy on a car boardfaggot
>>22707360>D. Shift out of gear and coast to the light in neutral while braking.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.
>>22710651>name one single situation that i would need to plant my foot to avoid an accident1. A fucktard that isn't looking at the road swerves into your lane.2.

>>22711335Welcome to the manual experienceThis is why you get an auto for commuting
>>22711335So long as its smooth you have nothing to worry about. The real clutch killer is stepping on he throttle and dumping t he clutch etc.
Welp there was no general consensus in this thread
>>22707360D, brakes are easy to change, clutch is not.
>>22711483D, but u, op, kept samefagging and claiming the other options involving downshifting, which is a newb thing to do just to show off and make noise when coming to a light. Adults go into neutral and brake.
>>22707360>imma see who know da manuel hurrFuck off.
>>22711501>the act of shifting out of gear early puts the same exact amount of wear as leaving it in gear then shifting to neutral at a stop.
>>22707360D, tho my dad said Id crash someday. It was many years ago.
E: let go of throttle to regenerate electrons and slow down.
>>22707360Stay in 3rd until rpm drops to the lowest point before its about to stall, put it in neutral and coast the rest of the wayIn 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
>>22707530>standing on the sidewalk, enjoying a peaceful day>barely any cars on the road>the smell of rust and poverty permeates the air>you turn just in time to see a shitbox cruising by going the speedlimit>loudly banging off the revlimiter, the sound of a straight piped, misfiring N/A 4 cylinder bounces off the walls of nearby buildings
>>22707360Usually C, but sometimes i heel-toe into second just for fun.
>You're driving in third gear at 30 mph.Why?
>>22707360>You're driving in third gear at 30 mph.I'm in 4th or even 5th at that speed.If it isn't too steep:>Brake and downshift to second, then come to a full stop.If it is steeper than 10% incline:>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.
>>22712132>5th gear at 30 mphWhat the fuck are you driving, a semi truck?
>>22707360Quick pop it into R to activate race mode so I can get through before it turns red.
>>22712209Not him but my car will happily sit at 5th and 6th at 30, it's at ~2500rpm at 30 in 3rd or ~3600rpm at 30 in 2nd
>>22707504>You know what else damages your tranny? Driving.Yeah, and shifting, dipshit. So why would I shift if I don’t have to? What benefit to I get not just coasting in neutral?
>>22712536Because you can coast in whatever gear you are currently in and save fuel.
>>22711513>D, but u, op, kept samefaggingLol no I didn't you're a retard
>>22707360That image is from a fifth gen golf, I know because I own one with that same stick. Also, the only reason to downshift is to accelerate when you're done braking, so it's neutral braking unless its a corner or a traffic is moving from the stop
>>22712209No, just a close-ratio gearbox that has a 4.312 final with 15" wheels in a car that weights less than a Miata.
>>22711501The fuck nigga, clutch is made to be replaced, meanwhile you gotta replace four (4) brakes
>>22707360option B unless the car I'm driving has a supercar-like extra long first gear, in which case, option AI'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 earlierIn 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 afternot sure how clear I explained it, English is my second language and I'm tired as fuck
>>22712800>not sure how clear I explained it, English is my second language and I'm tired as fuckYa'll love to flex on us with perfect grammar and punctuation then say something like this
>>22707391Debatable. Some trannys dont like downshift to 1st
you're all fucking retardsi run the red
>>22711335You'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.
>>22707364>AmericansI 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 againif 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?
>>22707360D But if the lights start to change rev match to 2nd and continue.>>22714219Better 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.
> gotta fit in with the other retards in my city.Absolutely no reaction to the light ahead changing.2 feet in and emergency stop moments before impact.Hope my shitwagon gets written off by the shitstain behind me looking at their phone.
>>22707394F. Don't shift out of gear and step on the gas.
>>22707375you drive like a bitch
>>22714701is that your attempt at road rage? don't mind me if I just crank down and let car machine go BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR and then I still get to the light before you.
There's like 6 of these threads a day. How much dialogue do you fucking knuckle draggers need for downshifting at a light? Put this shit in the QTDDTOT thread and fuck off
>>22714713autofags and ev cultists can't stand it
>>22714719Anon who can outshift your boomer truck driver grandpa can't stand it
>>22714712if you stay third gear at 30mph you ain't getting anywhere before me. I'll be flying pass you in second gear nearing 40mph as I flip you off pussy
>>22714171retard i dont use any other gears than 6th for maximum economy
>this threadeveryone in this thread is just fucking with the op right? how is any answer other than D correct? no one actually engine brakes down at every stop right?
>>22714796Your doing something wrong if you're changing pads before clutches
>>22714829>50k miles, never had to change pads or clutchesif 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 Dbesides brake pads are cheap compared to clutch replacements
>>22714435>Better control of the car should you need to accelerateOk I guess>or brakeNo
>>22707360E. Engine brake in 3rd until RPM drops enough then shift to neutral and coast. If lights change just double clutch to whatever gear needed (most likely 2nd)
>>22707360At that speed I would be in 5th or 6th gear and I would engine brake to regen energy (Honda IMA)
>>22715037>I would be in 5th or 6th gearat 30mph??
>>22707360A, but without breaking until the end
>>22707825>Upshifting for accelerationGood luck
What. The. Actual. Fuck. Is. This. Thread?amerilards I swear, anywhere where you actually need to be able to drive manual to even have a license you learn C.
>I'm actually going 50>I'm in 3rd M. Go to 2nd, keep rpms high, filter between the cars to the front, go to 1st, grab a girl's hand hanging out of her window, roll to stop
>>22715087really nigger you leave the car in third gear and just break to a full stop? IN THIRD GEAR??you fuckers have to be trolls.
>>22715217uh yeah do you own some kind of anemic shitbox? my car be cruises fine at 25mph in third gear and i'll just start braking and pop the clutch in while doing so. why expend more energy, wear my clutch, and pollute the environment with more noise than i have to? i'm not so insecure and attention-seeking that i have to show off my revmatching skills while getting groceries. save that shit for the track and canyons.
>>22707360Always downshift to the appropriate gear until stopped in 1st.Always revmatch.Coasting is incorrect and gay.
>>22715051Yeah I can coast in 6th gear as low as 25mph. Based nips
>>22715252faggot in third gear you have no power to the wheels, you're just being lazy what if you have to speed up for some reason - you can't. stop driving like a weak bitch because it shows
>>22707360almost always b
>>22715217t. tilted amerilard
C, downshift to 2nd if the light turns green and the car is still moving
>>22715291lmao guess i hit a nerve with the anemic shitbox comment. give me one reason i would have to speed up while theres a RED LIGHT coming up in front of me. where the fuck would i even go? keep gassing your little shitbox to pass me and prove your point while i cruise to my track days in my car that still has years of warranty left.
>>22715444who' says you're speeding up nigger, you just don't have torque in that high of a gear
>>22707360C. It's a bad habit since I learned to drive like this.
>>22707360E. Brake until stall
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.
Why on earth am I doing 30mph in third on a normal road? Put it in fourth at the least
>>22707360B but I never let go of the clutch.
>>22708704Shut the fuck up TJ
>>22707360What is this a driver licence test?
>>22710714>just floor itThis is why DBW exists
>>22707374This, don't even clutch when shifting out of gear usually
>>22708043On a motorcycle I switch into neutral so I can coast in throwing my hands in the air shouting LOOK MA NO HANDS
>>22707469... You don't need to rev match if you downshift around 1k RPM.
>>22707360E: Break in gear until rpms drop below 600 and clutch in then break. Rev match and lift off clutch if obstruction clears.
D if I see I'm approaching a light that just turned red, B if I feel the light is going to turn green soon.
>>22707360D YOU LITERAL FUCKING AUTIST
>>22707557He's not wrong
>>22707360I take it out of gear and press the brakesWhy would anyone do any of that other retarded shit.
>>22707360How big is this block? Prolly just clutch in and brake if it goes green off brakes blip throttle and into 2nd
>>22720697>How big is this block?1 city block long
>>22707360OrE. Build up the revs in 3rd as you apply the brakes (rears are disconnected) slowly coming to a stop as the rear wheels reach speeds of over 200ks while smoke billows everywhere making every female in a 10 k radius moist as all fuck
>>22707364Imagine not understanding how gears work. Dumb fuck.
>>22707360Slow down with engine braking, then shift into 2nd as I approach the light. After I stop, I shift into first.
>>22721011imagine driving slow
>>22721097Imagine been so clueless. Pathetic. Have you even driven a manual? You come across like a 12 year old who drove that one time in gta.
>>22712209Kek>tfw 6th at 25mph
- shift down to 2nd to utilise the engine brake- coast along- traffic light is green again because I patiently puttered towards it - hit gas and shift up when necessary- saved gas, saved brakes, saved footworkBut thats like second nature for non-burgers
>>22708043Why is it always so hard for all of you faggots to drive manual, u should be able to instinctually rev match and dump into whatever gear is required from neutral if needed
>>22707360B most of the time, D if I'm feeling like a lazy bum.
>>22710730When are you ever told to hit the gas to avoid hitting something? You hit the brakes dumbass. Hitting the gas just gets you to the scene of the accident faster.
>>22707360only driven stick for two weeks. Ive just been braking and then shifting straight to first. Is this wrong?
>>22722864Has to be bait.
>>22707376>>>22707360 (OP)>Let the engine brake reduce my speed and use brakes as necessary, go to neutral once rpm hits 1k.This is the correct answer eve throng else is retarded.
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.
>>22723936No 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.
>>22707553America 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
>>22708256On 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.
>>22710651Turning onto a road with traffic on it.
>>2272448340 in 1st for me, 70 in 2nd, 110 in 3rd
>>22720721The city blocks vary from 200 ft to a mile you dipshit.
>>22722864Cars 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.
>>22724419I love backfiring. I haven't been able to do it in 15 years since I drive better cars now
>>22724505What do you drive?
>>22707360Do A and B imply heel-toe downshifting or do faggots downshift without throttle?I usually just rev-match downshift to 2nd and then coast without brakes until I need to brake. I heel-toe sometimes though if I'm going fast enough to warrant it
E. Run the light, fucking light bulbs cant tell me what to do.
>>22724623People use cars that rev match for you
>>22707360>drive Honda Grom>revmatch and downshiftEBRBRBRBRBRBR>either A: whiteline to the front of traffic>or B: if no traffic then stoppie>rev throttle at light because idle adjust screw came loose again>watch for yellow light for opposing traffic>wheelie away when the light turns green
>>22707360>You're driving in third gear at 30 mph.4th gear, or maybe 5th on level groundIt depends how big an American "block" is and how far away the light is butE. 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 gearBruh 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.lol Americans
>People ITT answering DThis is a joke right
>>22707360D 90% of the time because I'm lazy, but A when I want to feel like a cool kid.
>>22707360lol, you guys, just hit the brakes and the car does the rest, silly.
