2010 VW MK6 GTI Night Drive
LEARNING TO DRIVE A STICK I took a spin around the block in my stock 2010
GTI. Fully broken in (3 weeks old and 2,000 miles) and she drives great.
I'm going to do some Exhaust work this
weekend, so I wanted to establish a sound baseline.
the stock Exhaust on my VW MkV GTI is
furious, only you have to practically put a mic inside it to hear.
additionally I threw a mic under the hood to hear the incredible sound of
the turbo and blow off valve, along with
I have to admit the speed I achieved at points while driving on this
stretch of road is surprising, but due to the GTI's incredible suspension
and aerodynamic tuning it was just another day in the office. Its tendency
to to understeer during acceleration is a welcome safety net, while some
lift-off oversteer helps the car to rotate around tight corners. at the
same time, it kept its composure 100% of the time even when the road was
less than optimal. what a great ride, and great fun. the only thing I'd
like to change about the car however is the brakes. they're as mushy and
mushy can be, and because of this they do not inspire confidence. maybe
some stainless steel brake lines would help, but there's no question that
my first modifications will be the APR ecu, upgraded brakes, and racing
all I have to do now is find the money to go racing so I can get off public
roads and build a proper race car. in the mean time, gran turismo will
download my gran turismo tuning guide for the iPhone on the iTunes Store.
also to note of the numerous times I shifted during this film, not one was
missed!!! no grinding here, though my clutch smelled like it didn't like it
when I used it to control wheel spin during one of the launches. still, the
car is very tight and smooth for having 30,000 miles on the odometer. I
don't ever want to get rid of it. and these roads are obviously tremendous,
they're the most curvaceous and undulating road I have ever driven. if only
I could get them to pave them, close them down temporarily and establish a
racing/rally circuit, I would be in heaven.

Stick Shift Disaster
John was so kind as to teach me how to drive a manual transmission vehicle.
Did I drive him crazy? Likely. Was I successful? You be the judge.
