Honestly I don't like the whole take clutch out and give it gas method. If the clutch allows slippage, I always have the driver get a feel for the engagement point. I then tell them to hold the engagement point until they notice the car moving forward on it's own even without gas. Then once they understand they can pursue to use the gas pedal and clutch in synch.

learned on a hill with traffic behind me in my bros 08 scion back in 07, thank god he was in iraq or sheeeeeet, but yea after i got the evo it was sooper hard because of the turbo lag and not to mention the former owner had slapped in a stage 3 racing clutch on a nyc street? yea no fun there but like everyone says, practice makes perfect, feel where the clutch disengages and the car almost turns off, learn that point because it is crucial. happy clutching!

3000rpm is kinda high, on an Evo 2000rpm or lower will work fine. I was testing an old WORKS 3-plate carbon-on-carbon racing clutch and could roll it out at like 1500rpm. The older Evos will also help you out with the IACV when it sees it dragging below idle which should be around 800rpm. Easy car to learn on.

Practice, practice, practice. Too bad you went for an expensive car to learn from.

Simple rules to live by. The clutch is either all the way in or all the way out. Don;t drive around with it anywhere in between. And don't launch it too often unless you want to get real good at replacing clutches!

Yeah, practice is literally the best thing, even though no one wants to hear that since they're looking for a black and white answer here lol.
I stalled the evo a total of 3 times with 1k miles on it. It's a just a matter of getting used to this clutch, which is a little trickier than most clutches.
But the good thing is that if you master driving the Evo, then you can drive any other car without an issue whatsoever lol.

blip the gas pedal while you slowly let the clutch out. This way you can feel where the clutch grabs and the positioning of your foot when u let off the clutch. This will help the stalling issue you'll prob be experiencing.

Practice, training, time and experience will make you a better stick driver. Same for all of us.
