    shift often
    do not ride out the clutch
    on or off.... try not to hang on the clutch pedal too long
    dont bring your RPMs too high (try to keep it under 5k)
    twisty back roads are generally good for this
    300 - 500 miles is generally suggested

    Rush hour traffic. Make everyone smell your clutch while you're breaking it in...
