How To Drive A Manual - (The Secret To Never Stalling)
We at Vehicle-Virgins™ are a dedicated group of college students here to
help you make one of the most important decisions of your life: buying your
first car. What sets us apart from other consumer review organizations is
our perspective of review; we approach the cars as any kid would, not only
as a professional automotive journalist would. We take into account
real-world decision factors such as budget, reliability, safety, and
maintenance, but we also rate cars on their appeal to a younger market. At
19 and 20 years old, we have spent lots of time looking for our first cars,
and we know what appeals to us as well as our friends.
Our mission is to guide individuals in the right direction for their first
car. Vehicle-Virgins reviews popular cars that young buyers are in the
market for and helps them decide if the car they are looking at is a good
We are lighthearted individuals who are passionate about cars and hope you
find our reviews both informative and funny.

the perfect solution. View this video and go for a ride (if you dare) with
Dave and he'll show you what it's all about!
Shifting a Megashifter 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
I thought we'd demonstrate how the B&M Megashifter works in regular and
ratchet shifting modes. We used our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am to demonstrate
just how well it functions. This is basically the same way that most
ratchet type shifters operate. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for

Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
http://carlylespicks.com/?p=142 Which is better, manual or automatic
transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
For the true enthusiast, the clutch pedal and gear stick or shifter are a
JOY to use...NOT a burden. Traffic is the one exception but we are talking
about the car enthusiast. We drive fr PLEASURE, NOT to get to work or get
groceries. So traffic is not an issue when it's 7AM on a Saturday or Sunday
and you are headed to your favorite country road.
For the enthusiast, the clutch pedal is a PLUS not a minus. It is a
critical part of what makes driving a stick shift an art. Automatic is
email and manual is a hand written note. A dying art that is much more
involved and personal than email.
Making a perfect shift, makes me smile like NO paddle shift will EVER do!
Manual is a piano played with a live band, automatic is one man with a
Casio keyboard in his basement with automatic accompaniment generated by
the keyboard. The feeling of playing a complex piece correctly dwarfs any
reward of pressing ONE note and having the Casio keyboard play a bunch of
Is a paddle shift a manual transmission?
Being able to request gears manually does NOT make a transmission
automatic. Remember in the automatics from the 80s you had "2" "L" "R"? So
automatics have allowed you to "change gears" since the 80s. This is just
like modern paddle shifters do.
NOTE: A sequential gearbox is NOT the same as the classic automatic
gearbox, but the point is, you could ALWAYS select/request gears in
automatics. So the ability to SELECT gears does not make it manual. You
need the ability to physically disengage the clutch by moving the throw out
bearing and also to physically change the actual gears. This is all
mechanically done, not electronically. It requires focus, finesse,
strength, timing and skill and it's rewarding to do correctly.
