I don't think so. I just went driving in my dad's Rodeo that was stick shift and god DAMN IT. ****ing annoying as hell, you gotta do this you gotta do that. You left the clutch out just a milisecond before you gave it gas so your car starts humping the air like some old blind dog. **** **** **** **** it just really got on my nerves :cussing: :cussing: :angryfire

ugh i think the same way about automatics now. they think for themselves, shift when they think its time, not when i think its time. ill never go back to that crap.

and the clutch is different on different cars. i tried learning on my dads 89 dodge spirit, i couldnt even get it to move. then i drove my freinds rsx, only stalled it once and i liked it. then drove the tbird again and hated it, automatics, so monotoneous and boring, made me want to sleep on the way to work in the mornings. so test drove a floatilla of new cars, rsx, rx8,v6 stangs, sn95 GT's(which are badass, yet not as quick as the GST, but the exhaust is enough to give wood), srt4, evo(freinds idea hes a salesman for kia so he just goes to lots and asks if he can test drive to compare and they give him the keys), but i wasnt really impressed with any of them. but my cousin came one day and he has just a GS eclipse, non turbo, slow as hell. but it was really fun to drive. the engine makes alot more torque than the civics i was looking at yet has no high end. originally my sights were set on a gs to rice out, full kit, paint, spoiler, rims, system, the works. then i stumbled on a gst spyder for the same price they sell GS's for. had to do it.

but the sn95 4.6ers should only be around 6 grand in good condition. i wouldnt pay 11 for one unless it had **** done and was truly badass. i would love a 96-98 GT, black 5spd. i test drove one a while ago and it was sweet, had this awesome exhaust tone, way better than the tbirds. id get the GT. cause a turbo car just means more **** can go wrong, and when it does, things can get pricey.

yeah driving manuals is different for each car. I learned on some old *** pacer, then drove my friends Del Sol, with no problem. Then I tried to drive my granddads old F-150.... that thing was a bltch!

I learned how to drive a manual on an old VW bus. Very forgiving, even though it was underpowered. Like others have said, once you figure it out manuals come naturally and without thought. Plus you have more control over the car, down shift when you want, upshift when you want, never have to get pissed off at ome tranny manufacturers lame *** shift points.

when i got my stang i got it manual at the time i did not know how to drive manual so i told my dad i buy it and he would teach me to drive it. it was so hard to learn with him and i was really considering trading it for an automatic. but like a week later i got my car alone and drove it nicely i liked it a lot after that
