    Yea, its easy. Probably took me 2 weeks to get it fully down. But traffic, oh man, dont get me started on that haha. You learn soon enough what all manual drivers gotta go thru

    Ok so my friend just taught me how to drive manual today :) I got the hang of it after like an hour. Not too hard haha I still need practice to get it fully down though! But yeah after a week or two I'll be good. I burned the **** out of my clutch though I could smell it lol

    Reminds me of when I re-learned on my car, the starter was a champ that day.

    Enjoy. :driving:

    yeah haha sadly I was riding the clutch too much because I've been driving manual wrong the whole time. Burned out the clutch completely and had to get it towed to my friends shop :( lost more money on that and had to put new clutch kit. I went with LuK

    Thanks! All stock right now but my friend is currently doing the clutch. While he is at it he is doing the 5 lug swap, suspension swap, and installing RL BBK. If he has time he might do some more haha Sad to see a lot of people moving on but I still like my car lol

    Thanks haha driving manual takes some getting used to... :confused:

    Lol Derek. If it makes you feel better, the first time I drove stick, I forgot to downshift from 3rd. I spent 20 min trying to figure out why I was stalling.

    Did you buy the clutch yet? I believe the kit is an HCK1000 from Exedy.
