I'm planning to sell my car (auto transmission) at the end of the year, and with my next car, I'm finally gonna try to get in touch with my masculine side and go with stick shift. I know the basics and everything. I'm just not very good at it yet. Any tips or cautions to share?? These might be pretty obvious for most of you guys, but here's some things I know. Correct me if I'm wrong, and please add more that you know...
- don't slow down by down shifting
- stay in low gears for going up and down steep hills (correct?)
- down shift a little during fast turns
- I just learned how to peel out, too!
