The manual transmission couples the engine to the transmission with a rigid clutch instead of the torque converter on an automatic transmission or the v-belt of a continuously variable transmission,  which slip by nature. In contrast to most manual gearboxes, most automatic transmissions have far less effective engine-braking. It is not at all suited to intentional slipping, in contrast with the foot-operated friction clutch of a manual-transmission vehicle. Thus, while a non-synchromesh transmission still relies on the operator to match speeds, gears are easier to engage. A front-drive transmission is basically the same, but may be simplified.

When accelerating from a standstill on an incline, this problem is made worse because the amount of work needed to overcome the acceleration of gravity causes the clutch to heat up considerably more. There are more factors involved but these are the main concerns when choosing the right manual transmission for your car, whether it's a street car, a weekend drag racer, or a road racer.
