Drop the clutch - Take your foot off the clutch pedal quickly.

Slip the clutch - Not familiar with the term. Could be a northen hemisphere thing

Slipping clutch - This is what happens when the clutch is worn. Not good, get it fixed.

Ride the clutch - Partly taking your foot off the clutch such that the gearbox is engaged, but the clutch is not fully released. Technique used by some who have difficulty doing hill starts in a manual. Not good, will result in a slipping clutch eventually. Perhaps this is the equivalent term for 'slip the clutch' ?

I can remember the days when I had no idea what these terms meant, however the Internet was not invented then and I couldn't do a quick google search to find the answers

No matter how long and hard you search on the ever loving goooogle you will not find the term "Slip the Clutch" it is a term that was brought up in this post that everyone is scratching their head on or banging it on a wall

Use the handbrake, while stopped (having your foot on the clutch and brake) put the handbrake on, when you are ready to go let go of the footbrake, handbrake and engage the clutch and take off (all done in one smooth quick action). It takes a practice but you'll get it.

Im pretty sure they mean to let the clutch out to feather point, revving high, then once your car starts moving to floor it. I've seen people do this in videos.
