A case for the neutral stop

Re: Andrew's question about staying in 1st with the clutch depressed at a stop, it's a bad idea! Even if modern clutch assemblies are robust enough to take it, there's a completely different perspective: should you get rear-ended or otherwise very startled, your foot will almost certainly fly off the clutch, possibly damaging your drive train, and maybe give you enough forward momentum to crash into what's ahead of you!

Finding out Andrew's DAD does this...awkward situation.
