thanks leon.

i bought a '85 honda prelude to learn for $80 a while back. Cheap lesson huh.

just kidding i put another $400 into it to keep it going. Clutch is still good after many stalls, gear grinding, etc...

I learnt to drive stick in my dads Jetta a few years ago when I didn't have my licence.
It wasn't so bad, it's pretty easy to do once you got the hang of it.
But I could never get to shift like that! Just the way the pictures were was confusing me :giggle:

my first car I learned to drive in was my 86 Legend 5 speed. Then I totaled that and bought a 90 auto, hated driving an automatic, it just never shifts when you want it to. Then I sold that and bought my 91 5 speed coupe. I will never go back to an auto, no more waiting for up shifts and down shifts. Plus I actually get better mileage. I have never tried the back hand technique it seems really akward especially since the 3rd gear in our cars doesn't always want to go in at high rpm's. I'll give it a try though.

hey...i already drive like that..weird

The best way to learn how to drive stick is to do it like i did. Although i didnt want it like that but thats how i learned. Got a good deal on an 5speed 91 legend, couldnt drive stick at all!!!
Well my bro brought it home for me, cause he knows how to drive stick. And then it was all left to me. Turned out that the car had a realy worn out clutch which made it even mroe agonizing, to add to that i live in new york city, the first day i stalled probalby like 50 times, had to stop and start at every traffic light. Especially were nerve braking those moments when i was on lil hills:) But ones you learn to drive worn out stick in new york city you can drive it anywhere you want :)

MANUAL IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER THAN AUTOMATIC.
IM SO USE TO MANUAL I THINK AUTOMATIC IS HARD HEHEHE.
I LIKE TO HAVE TOTAL CONTROL OF MY CAR.WITH AUTOMATIC I DONT LIKE THE FEELING OF IT MOVING ON ITS OWN,ITS SCARY.

Manual is great!
 
" If you cannot drive a manual than you do not know how to drive!" And that is the truth! I loved my 1986 Acura Legend 5 speed she was quick and agile. Then I got the Vigor 5 speed which was alot more quicker but still not what I wanted. However I have gone back to automatice just for now. Next car is a six speed coupe. Hey Kevon :giggle:

That back-handed crap is the dumbest thing I have ever seen! There is no reason why you would need to do something that rediculous. I guarantee that no advanced driving school (or even a beginners driving school) would ever endorse such a retarded shifting technigue.

The guy from BMW Films uses it :D

actualy that is the best way to do it. a friend of mine over revved because she was ham-fisting the shifter, she went from 3rd to 2nd by accident. that technique guarantees you wont make that mistake.

This type of shifting takes some getting used to. I tried it the other day and went from 2nd to 5th. :giggle:

Right now, I simply use different parts of my palm and a few fingers to shift. :D
