For now if I blip the trottle a little before coming up w. the clutch it is fine. I dont' like doing it but it lets me catch it withthe RPM closer to 750.

Mine idles at 500 as well and on occasion gets a little shake to it but not real noticable. I have almost 1000 miles on it and stalled for the first time last night. Uphill traffic light with a 370Z next to me. He shot off and I stalled
But I took him on the two previous lights and easily pulled away in 2nd

yeah the clutch is a pain in my ass too.

I have pretty much figured out how to put it in the friction spot and let it start to pull away... I just hate how quiet it is. I gotta get my exhaust fixed, that way i hear the motor start to bog when i let the clutch out too much before taking off.

I just wish I could get better at doing it quicker. Like if i stop at a stop sign, and try to hurry up and go, I will come out of the clutch too fast and miss the friction spot (since that range is so small anyway) and that makes me stall out. I have to stop, then slowly ease it out and let it start to pull, then go. Otherwise I miss it and stall.

Im tired of that and waiting to get the hang of it better

Day 3 and no problems with 1st here (feathering the gas a little), but finding the sweet spot to shift to 2nd & 3rd is taking some getting use to.

I fell like I'm nose diving every time I hit second and third.

I know how to drive a manual (last five cars were manuals) so I'm telling everyone in the car that its all the horsepower that I'm not use to!!!

I had not driven a car with a manual transmission in ten years. I have yet to stall my new Camaro. I think it's easier to drive than a little econo box with manual.

no stalling here, although the clutch disengagement is loud sometimes at a crawling speed when putting it into neutral coming to a stop, parking, or rolling. I just hate the 1-4 skip shift!

Great I have not driven a stick for 14 years and then it was only for a few months. Well if I stall too much I will just wear a Bra and clown nose. Nothing distracts people from noticing poor driving like a fat guy in a bra.

when i first got mine the clutch was on or off. very little room for slippage. i really had to pay attention to prevent stalling. i now have 2200 miles on it and the clutch is much more friendly. even my wife is happy with it now. she was afraid to drive it when new.

cts-v and it is also very easy, this car is kinda wierd to get used to. embarassing, lighting up 20's is expensive....and cool
hey I was laughing too! First time I have ever seen you stall anything!

With your "trouble" in mind...I did not stall it

750 rpm idle. But here in Phoenix the air is always dry and warm.

500 RPM at idle. This is not the issue. Release the clutch in reverse propotion as you increase the fuel. I have driven manual sport cars my entire life, mostly camaros and Vettes. This was the hardest clutch to get used to though.

The idle RPM is ECM closed-loop commanded to 550 RPM with random injector no-pluses to reduce emissions. This is what causes the little shake.

Although I didn't have any clutch release trouble at 550 RPM, I did raise the idle to 800 RPM. The engine accels quicker and it sounds meaner.

My launch method is to hold some throttle constant then release the clutch. That way you can control the engine load with clutch only - and don't have to coordinate clutch and throttle.

Hey Dans2ss,
Mine took awhile to get used to, mostly because I did not want to give it too much gas from a dead stop. $ months later, all is right with the world and the clutch too.
