    How I drive a manual with a prosthetic.

    Im not sure where I should post this. Anyways, I promised I would show you guys how I do it. So here it is.
    (Back story, I was born with a smaller leg. With only 30% muscle . And little to no knee cap. When I was 16 I decided to have it amputated. I now walk perfect and can drive a manual. lol)

    Not to take away, on the contrary: looks like you're driving pretty much the same way I drive. And my legs are normal, still I'm a bit rough at times... (like "can't find 'em, grind 'em").
    I'm happy to see you getting along well. Nice job!
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    That's awesome! Keep up the work, it's motivating to see you're not letting a handicap keep you down.
