I'm getting back to you about switching into either 1st or 2nd in motion from neutral on my manual C4S. I have no problem in switching into 1st gear from neutral in motion or from 2nd, where I think it is wise to do so when going uphill slowing down, but am I stressing any part of the car in so doing over the long run? If this is damaging to the car, then should I stay away from tight traffic?Is it OK to remain in 1st gear in traffic reving up to 6 or 7 rpm routinely as I speed up and slow down?
