Jumi is a founding member, president and CEO of Capital Dream Cars— Washington, DC’s premier exotic car rental company as featured in The Washington Post, Goss’ Garage, and SpeedTV.com. The business was inspired by a hobby and a need. Apart from owning her own exotic cars, Jumi would travel to Formula One races with friends and family—to Montreal twice for the Canadian Grand Prix and to Indianapolis for the United States Grand Prix—but when she looked to rent a Ferrari locally, her search came up dry. So, after much pioneering determination, she and two business partners launched Capital Dream Cars in March 2006 to fulfill the “dream car” dreams of Capital Area car enthusiasts like them. Growing up, Jumi always enjoyed driving, but it wasn’t until she learned to drive stick about 15 years ago and bought her first stick vehicle—a little green Acura Integra GS-R that still takes up a spot in her garage (and still runs great at nearly 200k miles!)—that she understood driving on a whole different level, not just as a way of getting from here to there. And perhaps it was her own small way of rebelling against the gender stereotype that girls can’t drive, let alone drive stick. Although she doesn’t presume to be a great technical driver, she enjoys driving fun cars and sharing her enthusiasm with others, which is, after all, what car enthusiasm is all about.

 Jumi Kim: Hi, I am Jumi of Capital Dream Cars and I have been showing you how to drive a manual transmission car. Now, I am going to discuss, how to drive uphill in a stick shift car without stalling. Here we are at a stop on a hill. So, how do we get going again without stalling or rolling backward. A few things to keep in mind is that the more you practice doing this, the better you will get at it. Don't panic and in this scenario give a little bit more gas than usual to make sure that you won't stall. So, here we are in first gear, we are at a stop still, we are getting ready to go and the key is to move your foot as quickly as you can over to the accelerator and give it gas.

Remember when you are on a hill, it's okay to give a little bit of extra gas. So, let's say you have stalled. Don't panic. Put on your hazards to let the other drivers around you know that you are having problems and just start again. Try starting again. Put your gear in first, your both feet on the clutch and brake. Turn off the engine and then try turning it on again and starting over. Now, when you get good at being on a hill without even having to use your brakes, it's going to tempting to kind of stay riding your clutch and pressing the accelerator so that you are in a state of up stasis where you are not really moving but you are not really on your brake pedal. Avoid doing this because it just bad for the clutch and there is nothing that will wear down the clutch faster than being on a hill and kind of riding it like this and crawling along. Now, that I have discussed how to drive uphill, we are going to move on to how to turn off the engine and park a manual transmission car.

Back in 1965 when my brother was tacking drivers training when they still taught manual trans driving my brother was coming up to a hill with a stop sign at the top and when they got to the sign the instructor reached over and shut the car OFF and said to him "Okay now restart the car WITHOUT it rolling back" (there wasn't anyone behind them though my brother was like "HOW?" That's when he taught him that clutch/brake trick and this is taught in some trucking driving schools too, I know because

There is a better way to start off from a hill instead of using your left foot for just the clutch alone if you turn your left foot so that it is almost parallel to the horizon (so that your two feet look like a letter L on it's side) or as close as you can get you can use your left foot for the clutch and brake both and feather off both as your giving the car or truck fuel with your right because if you stall on a hill you could rollback into a vehicle behind you you will fail a driving test.
