I love the e-brake trick ^_^ I still use it. I'm too lazy to actually try to drive right.

It was the first thing my dad taught me when I learned hills. I always laugh at guys who roll back when they drive standard. No reason for that at all. :P

@block8head thanks man. lol.

To everyone else, I drove her today after I got off work and did pretty damn good. Only stalled out 3 times. I even got a good run to push her. She is ridiculously fast! I say give me a week before I'm pretty solid on the basic stuff. On that note though....for backing out of your driveway...I know accelerating out is really uncalled for, and riding the clutch sounds like the wrong thing to do....How do you go about it? I'm way to used to just backing out with the brakes only.

Glad you are feeling more confident.

Personally, when i need to back up slowly i will ride the clutch a bit. Its not as hard on it as you would think. Just dont be at high RPM's while doing it.

What i do sometimes is just stay off the gas once you get the nice smooth takeoff in reverse. If thats still a little too quick, just take it out of reverse once its rolling fast enough.

Something worth mentioning, i read somewhere its advisable to not have the clutch depressed for more than 10 to 15 seconds at a time with the engine running. Like say waiting for a light to turn green. Just thought id share that.

@Mr. Smoke Thanks man. You've been seriously helpful bro. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to set my clutch aflame. It sounds scary. lol. Also, thanks for the tip. I figured it wouldn't be advisable. It only takes me a couple of seconds to back out anyways.

When I back up, I get it started with the gas and then play with the clutch and brake.

I always put my car in neutral if I'm in bad traffic or if I come up to a light right as it turns red. Holding in the clutch for that long can get annoying anyway

Yeah, I can say that I've confided in going neutral when coming to a stop. Downshifting came easy to me. I just gotta get used to the revs on the 6. I used the auto-manual on my Eclipse and got used to shifting at specific points. I'm at least glad I can still shift at the 3K rev mark in the MS6. I'm just surprised it isn't as difficult as it seems to just drive stick. I just gotta get used to my left foot doing something. lol.

You'll get it, and then everything will come naturally!
