Thats the way I normally drive but when taveling one mile in an hour that ceases to be an option.

The stock clutch in the 7.3l's are prone to collapsing springs in the pressure plate, so much so that most go with a heavy duty aftermarket clutch/pressure plate when the stock one goes. I havn't heard of any problems with an aftermarket clutch.
