Use both brakes, shift to first, stay in first at a light. Why? Because the person behind you expects you to go when the light turns green…assuming they remember you’re even there as they sent six text messages while waiting on the light. If you botch the neutral to one shift, you just became an obstacle. And even if the car behind doesn’t tag you, the car behind THEM might just bump them as they expected YOU to move.
And get to the BRC…don’t cheat yourself. Do a little research on the statistics and you’ll understand why.
