My shift knob
Who all here drives a manual?
@ILoveGingers, not many considering the comments lol
@ILoveGingers, I do, it keeps the idiots from stealing my car
@ILoveGingers, I never want to own something that's not.
@ILoveGingers, I was late to it, but it's so much more fun than auto.
@ILoveGingers, I do, but autos are much less popular in the UK anyway so not a big deal, although theyre getting more prevalent, which is a shame
@ILoveGingers, gotta love a 5.0L 5-speed foxbody
@ILoveGingers, I enjoy my manual but I love my
@Justice juice, I love my manual but I have to say my mustang is my favorite it's a 67' gt350 with a 700 horse custom roushe engine it's automatic with a slap stick
@ILoveGingers, I do. Driving an automatic makes me feel like the car has a mind of its own, shifting by itself and all, then I get all paranoid that its a decepticon and I just don't know how far it will go before it decides it's time to kill me for not having its oil changed often enough.
@ILoveGingers, manuals are the way to go
@ILoveGingers, I can drive manual. But I wrecked the one I have :(
@ILoveGingers, z28 camaro
@britters, 19 months later and this comment makes me laugh
@ILoveGingers, I'm a ginger! And I drive manual!!!!
I just realized it says "Warning: Inappropriate comments, spamming or trolling will result in comment privileges being revoked" on the bottom of the comments section...
@Top Tags, I thought you were trolling yourself sir but I take my hat off to you all of them
@Top Tags, This was literally one of the first things i noticed when i first got the app
@Pretty Sweet, well aren't you mr observant!!
@Top Tags, people use to quote that when (I think his name was this...) babyhitler or baby something was trolling like crazy. He eventually got banned and stuckpixel said "thanks for your concern" or something. Sorry it was a while ago.
@Pretty Sweet, we got a badass over here.
I just want to say that the lack of knowledge about regarding a manual transmission going on here concerns me....especially the "where's neutral" guy
@WelI Obviously, it's a dying skill
@Late Night Noise, not in the UK! :)
@WelI Obviously, he probably puts a brick on the clutch pedal and replaces it every week
The amount of non car guys on here upsets me:(
@guywhoremembersstuff, I'll talk car stuff!
@WelI Obviously, ME TOO
I wish I had a 6th gear :(
@Bonersaurus, you do it's called reverse
@CNN News Reporter , it's not actually referred to as a gear, it's just an idler that reverses the direction of first gear
@The Big Hodge, finally someone else that knows manual
@waffen ss, if it doesnt have 3 pedals, its a pvss car.
@DinkIeberg, for what the normal person can afford, yes, but the really high end performance area is getting away from it simply because paddle shifting transmissions can shift faster than any human
@Bonersaurus, i actually have 6 gears. 6th is where reverse is. And reverse is to the left up
@notsofunworld, yeah I used one in an Impreza STI I test drove. My Accord only has 5.
@Bonersaurus, most cars have 5. Older cars only 4. Muscle cars or sports models have 6. The reverse took a second to adjust to.
@notsofunworld, yeah and I believe it's VW that likes to put reverse where first gear goes
@notsofunworld, I mean in front of first then it's the normal set up after that
@Bonersaurus, it is and its very annoying when they only have 5 gears
@Bonersaurus, yeah. All cars have the gears the same. Exept one i saw where the shifter was beneath radio.
@Bonersaurus, yeah it was a sports model. Odd but coold
@notsofunworld, what car
@Bonersaurus, Honda civic SI
@notsofunworld, I wanted to get one in black back in 2012 but because I wanted it stick shift there was only 1 in Texas and it was red. I asked them to check it's availability and they said it was sold. So I bought the accord with stick shift. Brand new, never been test drove, and I put 2 15" CVXs in a ported pro box. They both have their own 1500W HIFONICS amps running on a 0 gauge wire.
@Bonersaurus, my car has 3 1000 amps. 2 12"kickers. And bose speakers. Powered by another amp.
@Bonersaurus, which one is drive?
@Josh42A, uhh they all are lol
@Josh42A, well in an automatic, you put the car in "D". In a manual, you start off in first gear, then as you speed up you change into 2nd 3rd 4th and so on. Like if you ever rode a mountain, bike you change the gears. The higher the gear number, the harder it is to pedal because you're supposed to be going faster in which case it would feel like nothing.
@notsofunworld, yeah that's a shirt shifter. I short shifted my saab 9000 cse
@notsofunworld, the weirdest I ever drove was either a truck with 3 on a tree or a 1969 corvette that was a three speed and had first as a pull towards you, second as an up swing, and third as an up swing next to second and reverse below that. first to second was unsync and third was sync because you can shift faster unsynced and third was only for cruizing
@The Big Hodge, that is in fact strange. I would very much like to drive something like that
@The Big Hodge, my grandpa has one in his 57' pick up
if anyone has any car questions feel free to ask. ill give ya some advice. im a nissan certified tech, but i work on all makes and modles.
@Im a Mechanic, why does my 2014 Nissan Altima stop at 120 mph on freeway??
@Im a Mechanic, This red light appears on the dash in my Nissan skyline when I put the hand brake on. My local garage told me its because I need 4 new tyres and a new cam belt, I'm very confused, any suggestions?
@regularguy, dose the engine shut down? or dose it not go faster than 120?
@AlexTheLion, i think you need to find a new shop haha. sounds like your e-brake light.
@Im a Mechanic, it doesn't go faster than 120, the engine keeps revving.
Fifth gear, worth it!
@Fetus Scrotum Licker, Wow, I just realized that there are six, I feel dumb ._.
Not a lot of Brits here eh?
You can use 5th gear at 30mph
@Rhiun, I usually cruise in 4th above 25 mph, it saves gas the higher gear you're in
@acsdog, if i went to 4th gear at around 25 in my car it would probably shut of
It should be "GTA" instead of Prison
There are 7 gears...
@CNN News Reporter , no 6 then reverse
Wait, where's neutral?
@Assassin4Hire13, you just derped your way onto the short bus with that one

I don't see the attraction to an automatic gearbox
I'm going the speed of prison! Get out of the way!
