Really only needs to be for 5 seconds max.

Warning: Again, pre-mature clutch wear. If you're not moving within 1-2 seconds of using this, you shouldn't be using it.
It will deactivate/disengage this feature automatically after approx 4 seconds if the car doesn't move.

Both are definitely cool tips though, use them both quite often - so far no issues have arisen with the clutch (80k and going strong)
