The question is, "how do you drive stick". <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

So you push in the clutch to shift gears, okay. But there has to be more to it than that or there wouldn't be such thing as people who can't drive stick.

The hardest part is Foot/foot/hand/ear/eye coordination.

If you let the clutch out too fast, you kill the motor. Not enought gas, you kill the motor. Too much gas, and you lurch forward or peel out. If you are on a hill and you are too slow with the clutch/gas switch, you will roll backwards into the guy behind you!

It is harder than just "push in cluch, change gear/let out clutch".

All that being said...once you learn how, and get used to it, you will be amazed at the ammount of control you have over the car, and you will miss that control when you go back to driving an Autotragic slushbox.

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.
