How To Drive A Manual - (The Secret To Never Stalling)
Vehicle Virgins teaches you how to drive a manual transmission vehicle.
Driving stick can be difficult at first, but with a few key tips, it's not
all that difficult.
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.

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.
Scion FR-S Test Drive & Driving Impressions
Experience the new Scion FR-S from the driver's seat.
I took a test drive the other day and filmed my impressions so my
girlfriend could get a feel for the car. She just got her wisdom teeth
taken out and wasn't in any shape to go on a test drive so I came to her
rescue and made this video of the experience.
Shameless plug: If you're local, around SE Michigan, be sure to ask for
Jamar Daniels at Victory Toyota of Canton, MI for information &
availability on the Scion FR-S. Had a great experience with him, he was
very helpful and generous with his time.
1. It has four wheels, which seemed very round when I inspected them.
2. Doors with which to enter and leave the car (you don't have to enter
through the windows or the top or bottom of the vehicle)
3. While driving the car, there is a round knob (though not as round as the
wheels) that controls the wind inside the car. The wind can be a mild
breeze, or a vicious tsunami blowing from little holes in the front
console. It can be cool or warm, and you can direct the wind. It makes you
feel very powerful.
4. There is also another button that lets you listen to people talking and
singing in the car, I believe Jamar called this a radio. This device only
allows for listening, and is therefore a one-way conversation. I tried
talking back to the people in the "radio" and they either couldn't hear me
or didn't feel like responding. I imagine they have a lot of people trying
to talk to them through the "radio." If you don't have a lot of friends and
want someone who never stops talking, this radio device is probably a good
thing for you to order.
5. The cloth seats have a red stripe on them. I assume that this is
probably from the animal's skin that was used to make them. The red stripe
tells me that the animal was fierce and vicious, trying to warn its
predators of it's danger with a warning color, much like bees and the
yellow jackets they wear. However, it mustn't have been a match for the
Scion hunters, as I hear many FR-S's are filled with seats made from this
In short, the FR-S makes me feel like an ancient hunting warrior that can
control wind, talk to spirits, and chase down fast dangerous animals.
Enjoy the video, I hope you find it helpful in your quest of filling the
empty void in your heart with a lightweight rear wheel drive sports coupe.
Quick Shifting vs. Powershifting
BEFORE YOU COMMENT :
-The purpose of this video is only to show the difference between quick
shifting and powershifting.
-Constructive comments are welcome.
-Stop whining about the shape of the transmission. I don't drive like that
all day everyday, and it still shifts like butter (must be done properly
-Whining about the position of my hand on the steering wheel is also
irrelevant. I usually drive with both hands on it, but during the making
of the video I happened to let one hand on the shifter because I felt like
it (multiple shifts on a short time).
-Thanks for watching and let the VTEC kick in, yo !
Quick lifted shifts vs full throttle powershifts. Powershifting means that
you never leave your foot off the gas while shifting. Also added some rev
matching near the end.
