not quite new to this forum, been on here for a little while because I was in the market for a bugeye. decided at 19 and still in school that the insurance and premium gas would end me so I went with an 05 honda accord v6 coupe with a 6mt. I love the bugeyes but its still a pretty nice car!
Im not driving a subie but alot of the people on this board have been very helpful to me and extremely knowledgeable and I could use some help. here's my only problem; Ive only driven manual twice before getting the car today. my sister picked it up at the dealership for me and dropped it off while I was at work. when I got home I said "F it" and took it out for a spin. no highways or going above 40mph just trying to get it down.
obviously I stalled about a thousand times. on the roads I didnt do too bad to my surprise but I eventually took it in a parking lot to get down getting into first gear and I kept stalling over and over and getting stressed out. got a few angry honks too....
should I be worried about my tranny? I know Im probably just freaking out, but that horrible gear grinding sound when you stall just makes me want to cry.
and please tell me it gets better! I was getting so frustrated by the end of the day. eventually I got my buddy who has a bugeye rex to ride with me and he gave me a lot of good tips.
I know Im a honda not a subie but lets face it, honda makes nice cars but the community sucks. thats why I like subies so much because alot of real drivers dig them and I could use a little guidance. any tips to a noob on stick would be appreciated too. thanks!
