Mensagem:  What you are describing only works for cars with a clutch. Automatic transmissions can't be started this way. The words used to describe what the driver is doing is "pop the clutch" because the people pushing the car want him to do it quickly. "Hey John, when we get it going just pop the clutch and giv'er the gas!! Okay?"
