since it's relevant... thought i've had about bump-starting lately is putting the throttle on the floor(or at least, opened significantly) before letting the clutch out to prevent the instant engine braking that would happen with a closed throttle plate when going from 0RPM to whatever the engine would spin up to when in gear.

seems like it would be less strenuous on both the clutch and engine.
