GRAB YOUR SMARTPHONE, MANUAL CAR, AND START DRIVING!
Push starting may be more complicated, which is why I suggested jumper
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
4. Gain momentum either by gravity or friend
5. Let go of the clutch, and the car will be running

Sorry for the mess. I was installing an alarm.
BMW M5 (SMG) vs. BMW M5 (Manual)
This is a very important race video for many people. It shows the
difference in performance between a BMW E60 M5 with an SMG transmissions
and an M5 with a traditional manual transmission. Though the 6-speed is
clearly the more enjoyable transmission, the SMG does exactly what it was
designed to do. Shift faster than

Me discovering that I am not good at launching a manual car. Third time
ever down a strip in this car!
Edit: Have almost 19,000 miles on this car now. Haven't taken it to the
strip since 2011, but it just keeps getting better and better.

cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
A machine consists of a power source and a power transmission system, which
provides controlled application of the power. Merriam-Webster defines
transmission as: an assembly of parts including the speed-changing gears
and the propeller shaft by which the power is transmitted from an engine to
a live axle. Often transmission refers simply to the gearbox that uses
gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a
rotating power source to another device...
Manual transmission come in two basic types:
- a simple but rugged sliding-mesh or unsynchronized / non-synchronous
system, where straight-cut spur gear sets are spinning freely, and must be
synchronized by the operator matching engine revs to road speed, to avoid
noisy and damaging "gear clash",
- and the now common constant-mesh gearboxes which can include
non-synchronised, or synchronized / synchromesh systems, where typically
diagonal cut helical (or sometimes either straight-cut, or double-helical)
gear sets are constantly "meshed" together, and a dog clutch is used for
changing gears. On synchromesh boxes, friction cones or "synchro-rings" are
used in addition to the dog clutch to closely match the rotational speeds
of the two sides of the (declutched) transmission before making a full
