Default Manual Driving Tips-basic to advanced

Here is a great place to learn the basics of driving manual.

http://www.bmwm5.com/greg/school/

I would also suggest going to www.howstuffworks.com and looking up clutches.

There was an exhausting long thread on this recently that I think has to be read. It covers everything from Oversteer control, to double clutching, to heel toe, to basic basic driving stick tips.

If anyone has anything else to add, tack it on.

I think that this thread is ready to go to the FAQ section...maybe we could wait until the end of Friday...but I'm content with the info.

This is beginning of fewer of the exact same questions everyone! YES!
