I have to use a slight amount of gas. It's a relatively tight squeeze where I park, so I have to be careful backing up. The I have to factor in the road, which is between 15-20 feet back from where I park. I may just have to try some different techniques. However, I know some of the previous years experienced clutches burning up very quickly. I was reading over on ClubWRX and they have a thread going on such. Some people were losing 2 clutches before they even hit 30k miles. Driving spiritedly or not, that should not happen.
