      So I passed my driving test and got myself a car.

      Y reg corsa, does the trick A to B. So drove it for the firs time today, and when starting it up, in 1st gear... get the bite and put gas on and away.... But it seems I dont need any gas or bite... Ive just been lifting the clutch and its been moving off... Shouldnt it stall lifting the clutch without gas and the bite ? In the two cars I learnt to drive in.. you needed clutch, gas + bite to take off from stationary in 1st.

      Just a little confused..

      Your clutch needs replacing if there's no biting point.

      Its just passed its MOT.... Maybe ive explained wrong.. There is a biting point... I can get the bite.. and hold it there to control movement, But when im starting off from stationary... I dont need any gas... I simply bring up the clutch and it moves off without stalling.. lol!

      Is it a diesel? If it is, then that will be why. They have more low down torque than petrol engines and so you generally don't need high revs to pull away.
