Hello all! Looking for some advice.
I have had few new cars in my life and have not driven a stick for 16 years. Something snapped and I bought a new 2012 Wrx (premium hatch). I wanted some guidance in two areas, if you would be so kind...
1. I did not know about the "break in procedure." On the way home from the dealership, I crested 5000 rpms a few times. I shifted at that point but really gave it the juice. How likely is that to have damaged my motor
2. I am doing well with the stick overall...except in going into first! I stall going into first gear from neutral at stop lights. How far down do I need to depress the clutch? It seems that it is disengaged well before it is all the way down. Is this true?
Thanks for any feedback!
