What do you mean you "drove like you had experience in driving a stick"? If it was your first time, I'd imagine you stalled out a few times before you found the sweet spot in the clutch.

Lol sweet spot. Bahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha


On a related note, I think I've stalled maybe 3 times? Idk I'm no Stig, but I learned on a dirt bike so driving manual is a kinda second-nature thing.

driving a manual is fun and all... until you hit rush hour traffic...

then you realize how big your left calf muscle is... and how you hate driving

i'd rather deal with rush hour then be stuck driving an auto all the time. you just wait till there's about 5 car lengths of space in front of you and then let the car role and ignore the guy on your rear bumper that's yelling at you:driving:
