Heel Toe Downshift Tutorial (How to do the technique)
Okay so here is me doing heel toe downshifting. The camera angle makes it look like my foot barely touches the gas, but if you listen in close you can definitely hear it. As it says in the end, I learned this technique not too long ago and hope that it helps people out there who are in the same position that I was in a few months ago. I am not a professional, but one day hope to be, lol. Thanks to Rob for helping out.
Driving a Manual- First Time!
This is a performance piece of my first time driving a manual car. I hadn't driven in quite some time before that because I lived downtown Portland OR for school and didn't require the need for a car.
Hope you enjoy my video project for Time Arts Video class at WSU.

Secrets of Driving Like a Pro
You love driving, and you think you're pretty good at it, but how well can you really drive? The chances are, whether you passed your test two or 20 years ago, you don't give too much thought to improving your driving skills or the basics of maintaining your car; yet driving well can mean more than just keeping you out of trouble on the roads.
The Basics to Drive a Manual Transmission Vehicle
I feel that every driver should at least know how to drive a stick shift car. The sense of control and power that comes with a manual is unrivaled. I hope this video can give you the idea of what it takes, and how, to drive a car with a manual, or standard transmission.
Car used in this video: 2000 BMW M5.

UPDATE 2 Below...
here's my video on autoblog: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PV_nxkPxLGk&NR=1
UPDATE 1: by "perfect shift" in the title, i didn't intend for it to really mean a best-practice way to shift gears but, rather, to mimic the title of the thread i read about this technique from.
this is a video i made after i read a thread on the forum i'm always on (forums.clubrsx.com). it's about shifting w/out using the clutch. yes, there really is less wear on the infamous synchros (a widely discussed topic in the comments section of this video) the closer you shift at the appropriate RPM for the gear you're switching to.
UPDATE 2: i've turned off comments and ratings to this video. i'm pretty much tired of seeing the same comments recycled. besides, there are already over 1000 comments (after removing extraneous ones) and over half a million views. here are the categories the comments fell under and my responses to them:
comment about "facepaint"
-it's a mud mask used for exfoliating. i didn't bother to take it off before making the video, apparently.
truckers do this
-great. i learned something new after receiving this type of comment about 500 times.
my car is gay
-it's a matter of preference, homies ;)
i tried it and it worked
you're messing up your tranny/synchros
-i'll agree with this to a certain degree. you will mess up your transmission/synchros if you perform this "clutchless shifting" horribly (i.e. bad rev-matching) and repetitively.
why don't you just use the clutch?
-see update 1

GRAB YOUR SMARTPHONE, MANUAL CAR, AND START DRIVING!
Push starting may be more complicated, which is why I suggested jumper cables.
FYI: To push start a car:
1. Find a hill or find a friend/stranger to push the car
2. Put the key to the ON position
3. Push in and hold the clutch pedal while it is in gear (2nd gear might be smoother)
4. Gain momentum either by gravity or friend
5. Let go of the clutch, and the car will be running
The car is a 2000 Honda Civic Si.
I used the Canon 60d dslr w/ Tokina 12-24 f/4 lens.
Sorry for the mess. I was installing an alarm.
