    Congrats!

    As far as the stalling goes, you'll get better with time.

    you have to get used to higher RPM starts. Normally, you'll want it around 3k RPM to get it moving. you get used to it. Eventually you'll learn to keep it at an even 3k through the whole clutch engagement.

    It takes some getting used to. It also takes some getting used to when you drive other cars afterwards. When I got my Mustang GT, for about a week, I kept chirping the tires at every light with 3k launches. had to get used to the 900-1000 RPM launches again.

    You guys engange the clutch at 3,000rpm? Damn, I'm only around 1,500 and it's smooth as silk. I rarely go above 2,000...

    Congrats on the new 'Rex, what color is it?

    I was doing the same thing when I got the Z. I though it was just me.

    you have to learn to slip the clutch at higher RPM's...but not so high or so slow that you smoke the clutch. its definately different than what most people are used to.
