HELLO 9TH GEN!!! :cheerleader1::cheerleader1::cheerleader1::cheerleader1:MY FIRST CAR PURCHASE! :cheerleader1::cheerleader1::cheerleader1::cheerleader1:I just recently picked me up a Honda Si Coupe from a local dealer in MA. super excited!!! Never drove stick before, but I am determined to master it! I tried driving it a couple times it was okay then I stalled on my way home. Trying not to be discouraged! A little nervous behind the wheel while driving it. Any advice driving stick guys? Its all footwork and still finding the sweet spot in the clutch. This is my second day. :wigglesmiley: Ill be posting up pics soon! Thanks Guys!!! Stephen image_2.jpg

Welcome my friend. We have all started out in your shoes before. For me it wasn't in such a great ride though.

DerekJA has an active thread with lots of advice in it about driving a manual trans. It's called What Did I get Myself Into or something like that.

Welcome, Durty.

Welcome to 9thgen. Do not worry about stalling or grinding gears. We all were noobs at one point. Just remember practice practice practice. Good luck to you.
