The only waste of time was seeing your post with nothing productive or for any reason but to get your post count up. What techniques are you talking about. If you are talking about the information that I got from an SCCA instructor, you might want to ask for any money back that you spent to go to the track. The only thing you probably have ever done is Drag. You might want to go back to the couch and play with your Playstation and talk big on the forums for Gran Turismo. Stay away from the forums where people actually know what they are talking about.

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.

Well if you read what I said, "this thread is the biggest waste of time", you'd know I wasnt talking about hondamans info being a waste of time, more so the thread. I totally agree with hondamans tips, I was taught the exact same thing by some guy (nobody special) in my Eclipse at a local cone course. Yes I did do drag and still do, but everyones right, now that I read it, I dont know why I wasted my/your time saying anything. I apologize guys!

Full Retract....

Sorry Man! I realize now what you were talking about! Sorry. Hey, maybe since you brought these posts back up to the top, we might teach a few more people how to shift correctly. I take back my quips and I hope that you accept my apologies.

I`m agreeing with someone else's post-- driving automatics is way harder for me. I drive cars all day long at work (most of them automatics) and i have to put way more effort into autos than sticks.. FOR EXAMPLE.. an h3 was in here like last month and it didnt have the auto gears labeled.. ive never had an automatic so it was a little harder for me to remember where reverse is, etc. i drive really similiar to this, and its true it will help you not shift into wrong gears (2nd instead of 4th, etc).
