Hello can anyone help with how to move off at uphill junctions and traffic lights uphill without the handbrake how would you do it. I can do it with handbrake I set gas and bite then release handbrake but how do you do this when you are only there for a few seconds and dont use the handbrake and just clutch down and keep the brake on.

As you said get the bite point and then put on a lot more gas than usual then release the handbrake once confident that you can move without stalling. not much else to it, just keep the revs high, dont give up too much of the clutch and try not to overthink it.

Without the handbrake, you can either hold it on the bite (although this can ruin the clutch over time), or use the brake. You’ll need to practise switching from the brake pedal to the gas in one swift movement though.

These are the options:

1. Hold the biting point until it is safe to go (but will wear the clutch out).
2. Use hill hold (if your car has it).
3. USE THE HANDBRAKE.

No, if you’re holding the car on the bite you shouldn’t actually need to use the brake at all. Momentum will slow the car down
