I would have to say driving a auto is easy, but there is nothing like driving a manual and being part of the action. I learned on a 86' nissan pickup. Stalled it, bounced it, but it didn't take long. I drive had a manual for years and now drive and auto. Bored to death. I will be getting the manual for sure. Practice makes perfect. Taught my wife, and if she can learn anyone can.... No offense to her...

you can hear/feel when to shift. that takes time and practice to know and will be different amongst vehicle setups. ie: a jeep with a 4.56 rear might require you to rev higher in 1st/2nd/ etc than a camaro with a 3.45 rear.



the real trick however, is shifting without using the clutch pedal.

The way I see it , the Camaro for most of us is a melding with the ride and you are the most controlling aspect of the power this baby dishes out and there is "nothing" more fun and more satisfying then getting that lurch during the manual shift and the satisfaction that follows a number of lurches after running thru the gears.........wooohooo ! Thats not to say the sport mode on the paddy shift auto doesnt give you a little bumb but I believe the GM version of the manual mode is soft and a slight hesitant ......blah , I guess thats ok for grandpa who may wany a comfy ride

I want my 2SS LS3 now dam it !!
