Knowledge flows from those who have to it those who want it. Don't post meaningless crap when you're n00b.

Thanks for that clutch info but that didnt help me, I said I already know how clutches work and what are clutches. I just didnt know the term like drop the clutch and slip the clutch.
Now I know drop clutch but what is slip the clutch? Does it have to do with the clutches grinding or slipping on each other.

well if the clutch is slipping then sounds like the clutch is going out, too much torque will also make the clutch slip. But I have not heard the expression of "slipping the clutch" "drop the clutch" yes but not the other.

A slipping clutch is one that's wearing out and acts like a limited slip instead of a clutch, not gripping when you have the pedal all the way out. Slipping the clutch is not a technique used for racing.

Hey! that other guy that said slipping the clutch is not for racing is wrong. Slipping the clutch is for racing!! Anyway how would you slip the clutch, I'm talking about with RPMs, what you do with your feet, hands to acually slip the clutch. In a drivers point of view.

What? You're making zero sense. Slipping the clutch is wear in the clutch, making it less useful. Who's this 'other guy' you're talking about? You don't acutually slip the clutch, it's not a racing technique. Are you thinking about hell-toe double clutching or something?

He can learn about it by watching fast and the furious over and over again.

Are you guys really that stupid or doing it on pupose. I'm talking about launching the car here. Heel and toe is a technique for faster cornering which has nothing to do with launching. So if you say slippin the clutch is not a launching tech then what is.

It's what happens when you need to replace your clutch.
