I'm not that familiar with the program "CarTalk", but I have a feeling it's probrably not the best place to get your info from.
Haha, no, the CarTalk brothers weren't saying push the clutch in and ride the brakes ... I just wanted to make sure that's not what I was hearing.

And the show's a riot, the guys are older than dirt, kinda senile, and still seem to know their stuff. http://www.cartalk.com/
