    slowly releasing the clutch, its used to control wheelspin and get the most traction possible.

    It is when you let the clutch slip so that you don't jsut drop it into gear and spin the tires.
    Once you are comfortable with your car, you can feel where the clutch engages at and you can press it down or let it out according to how much power you want to go to the wheels, and you are able to keep teh motor at a higher rpm, instead of having it bog down. I have to do this everyday on my POS corolla because it has absolutely no power and if i dump the clutch it will die out on me, so feathering it is the only way to take off.
