Since this has been resuscitated, I'll just comment that the original message and technique illustrated would be useful for the tyro.

Me, been shifting gears for over thirty years. Kept the stock shifter in my SE-R despite the predilection for most other SE-R owners to go short-shifter because I felt the stock shifter was very communicative and I liked the easy throws. Taught myself heel-and-toe double-clutching and use it on the track. A lot of guys think the double-clutch is passe and that modern synchros can deal with simply rev-matching. Sounds cool, though.

I am not a fan of automatics. The Legend's is leagues better than the slushbox in my truck but I'm still not happy with the lack of control.
