Wait till you've got a clutch to work, see if you're still loving them then!

Well I still have access to the one that needs sold... Though my problems there were with my knee and ever since HRT my knees have been fine, go figure. Huge muscle atrophy though in the thighs and calves, but short of some old muscle car cable/linkage clutch I should be fine in that regard. The important thing is that clutch engagement and disengagement will have never looked(or felt) so good. laugh.gif

Drive a stick in heels, then we'll all be impressed.

I can do so at an acceptable level, but I'm bad at hills still. I rarely get to practice but I can when needed.

When I do drive stick it's usually max once or twice with that one car and then not again for months at a time. I can get about any stick shift up the ramps onto the drive-on rack at the shop and around town on a test drive (but I'll probably stall it a couple times if it's new to me), from an inline 6 Ford pickup to a 2016 Focus RS to a 2008 C7 Z06 race-car with full cage, but I'm not *good* at any of them. I can bang some gears and 'powershift' without the clutch and chirp tires between gears but that's the easy stuff to do. Driving smooth and not chugging the engine or starting off from an incline without rolling back, hell no I can't do that. laugh.gif


Renewed the plates on my Mazda -$103
Autogeek had an end of season sale, 25% off orders over $125 so -$128

Bitter is broke now


But I did get some exciting new things to try and some more of the pads I know I love! I'm excited for some of the Optimum spray products, I got their Glaze Polish Sealant (GPS) and Hyper Polish to try out. I'll try Hyper Polish and GPS out on Erin's 2016 Escape because I've got a lot of area to cover and spray on should cut the time per panel down to a level where I don't hate my decisions as much. It needs a clay cloth then one pass with Hyper Polish then one pass with GPS and we'll see where it's at, might top it with Collinite 846s for that sexy big water beading. The interior needs to be cleaned so badly, I love her but she eats in her car which to me is the most disgusting thing in the world.

I'm far from pro racer levels myself, but I can shift as smoothly as an automatic(smoother than the old ones actually), start from a steep incline without rolling back, and toe heel/rev-match so I'd say I'm adequate. It's all in the footwork between the clutch and throttle, have to be smooth and gradual with your inputs. I find playing with the clutch and shifter for about a minute before actually driving a "new to me" vehicle is sufficient to get going down the road smoothly.

Ewwww, eating in the car. Drinking water is as much as I'll do in my cars.
