Hi Ian,...Personally I found that my driving style meant I didn't have this problem and I can easily drive to avoid the problem... I have also explained this to guys on the forum... However, they have convinced me that this is not the point... The point is if you want to pull away with lower revs, you can't without balancing the clutch to bring them down and risk stalling. Therefore I support this thread.
Don't forget it has the same effect when down shifting too. If you're driving gently ( with your millteks ha ha ) and you try to raise the revs to meet the engine speed the problem occurs that way too. i.e. if you have contol of the revs and then put you foot on the clutch, off it goes and does it's own thing!
The other thing is, that unless you want to always change from 1st to 2nd at revs higher than 2500, as soon as you engage 2nd gear and lift you foot off the clutch you are in the wacky zone again because of the large ratio differnce between first and second gear.
