I've been trying to learn on my brothers 300zx how to drive a stick. Im actually pretty good at starting, and decent at doing it on slight inclines. Because he has put a lot of time and effort into his car, i dont want to do anything stupid in it when i take it out of my neighborhood, so does anyone have any tips for me before i try to become more of a man and drive a manuel car?
Also, i just bought a 89 f250 that is a manual to fix up my brothers house with him. Always wanted to learn to drive one, and now i have the chance. Cant drive the f250 because we just fixed the clutch, but it over heats so next thing we have to do is get a new radiator and thermostat. Other than that, hope to be able to drive it soon.
One thing that drives me nuts about people that drive manuals is how high they rev it to start. Your supposed to let the clutch out until you feel it grabbing, then give it a little gas. Rpm's shouldn't go above 1K and come back down if your just starting normal. It just takes practice to learn how to drive smooth. You'll find the exact spots where you can shift to the next gear as smoothly as possible.
