First gear idle speed? And how to engage it?
I realize that first gear is quite low, seen the comments from some folks that they very easily start out in second.
Being there's a few times when I just want to creep along nice and slow (bad traffic, usually), I'm curious... when you let it drop to idle in first gear, what's your ground speed?
And from a stop, how do you finagle the thing to get the clutch to fully engage and just idle along? Will it then stay engaged at idle unless you tap the brake? At what point does it "push in" the clutch when you're moving slow?
