    Nice vid. People should learn how to drive a manual. Not cause to earn respect from other drivers, but in case of emergency

    I have a question about downshifting. So let's say I'm moving in 3rd gear and have to make a right turn and the right turn is little bit steep and the road is not great. What I do is I give my signal, slowly break the car, press clutch all the way and turn with break slowly. After slowing down in a safe speed I put gear to 2nd and start giving gas and slowly pull my feet from the clutch, is that a bad way to downshift? Do I have to blip everytime I downshift or is it fine if I slow down and downshift without blip?

      Try this instead, when aproaching the turn, let go of gas instead of breaking, let the engine brake the car. When you are at a comfortable speed you put down the clutch and change to second( somwehre in the beginning of the turn/ right before the turn) no need to give gas until you need it, when the steep part comes.

    So it takes 7 full seconds just to change gears??? What's the point of driving a manual then? It's certainly not performance. Today's automatic transmissions can outperform any manual transmission.

    I've been driving a manual transmission for years and I'm learning terminology I never heard when I was being taught to drive. It's stuff I'm sure I've been doing, I just never knew there were terms!

    I think i missed it but if pressing the clutch to stop the car, whats the point of the break pedal then?

    I guess everyone has a different way of teaching how to drive manual
    Because that 7 second rule is going to confuse people. Your going to have a lot of people burning their clutch holding their clutch for too long.
    Im not saying your doing it wrong, but for beginners they are going to take your 7 second rule like a bible and end up holding the clutch for too long.

    Isn't releasing the clutch too slow also bad? As in a 7 second clutch release from first gear is basically riding the clutch
