I drive an old mechanical (non fluel injection) gasoline manual transmission car, and my approach to braking is pretty much as follows:
- Dissengage acceleratior, press clutch 100% in
- Press break pedal accordingly
And now things change depending on if the reason I was breaking still exists (for example, the light change or the car in front accelerates)
In case I need to fully stop I:
- Continue tu break till I come to a stop
- Shift to neutral, disengage clutch
If I need to resume:
- Down-Shift in to gear according to my speed
- Rev-match and accelerate, carry on
I've been told many times this is not the correct way to do things because a car coasting in neutral or breaking in neutral isn't a car 100% under control.
Can anybody please elaborate and state the proper way of doing this?
