kill yourself, AND the tranny!MidKnight said:This is ridiculous.... you want to learn how to drive stick on a $30k car with 300hp? Go buy a $500 ****box and learn on that before you kill yourself in the STi. Thanks.
either you said this to get them riled up, or you meant it. either way, geez.kevinmac said:i was wondering how the hell im gonna test drive an sti. i dont knnow how to drive a stick yet ? any ideas .. even if i learned first i wouldnt feel comfortable with the dealer guy there incase i ****ed up .
Yup, sounds like a very smart plan to me. That way, you won't have to put your STi's drivetrain components through hell just from learning on it. Plus, what's a car mean to you if you can't even drive it decently, ya know. Wise choice.kevinmac said:...maybe i should invest a portion of that money into a crappy car that has manual so i can get good on it then save up a bit again and spring for the STI ?
Only in America.....anyways, as others above have suggested, consider buying an absolute beat car to practice driving. However, I do suggest you take some driving lessons as well and not ones from friends who are apparent "expert" drivers as you will likely pick up any bad habits/techniques they possess.kevinmac said:i was wondering how the hell im gonna test drive an sti. i dont knnow how to drive a stick yet ? any ideas .. even if i learned first i wouldnt feel comfortable with the dealer guy there incase i ****ed up .
Any recommendations on this?schischwein said:Perhaps something else that might help is looking at a schematic diagram of how things are linked up engine/drivetrain to get a visual mechanical idea of what must occur.
