    I was down at my dealers on Monday and was just talking about the issue of towing.
    I have a rolled gutter then a steep driveway to enter my garage and cannot get any sort of a run up, I have to feather the clutch on the way up and sometimes smell a hint of clutch once inside the garage.
    I have no intention of towing anything, but his reply was that when our cars (2010 manual Clubbie etc) are hot, and the torgue they produce they do not like feathering of any sort, he has heaps of complaints about guy's trying to pull boats out of boat ramps and tradies using Maloo's as their work utes that end up with no drive at all and get stuck until the car cools down.
    In his opinion there is no simple fix, the only one he recommends is if you are going to tow with the current range of HSV's you must purchase an Automatic.

    Cheers, GR8T

    Yeah for boat ramps, but what about towing a gokart to the track or a tailer full of garden waste to the tip? You would have any need to slip the clutch. Would ya?
    Having said that thou i must admit i tow quite a bit but it's always been with an auto.
