opps I think that was a world record for typing, it meant to read car park.

Maybe a parking lot to you people.

TM....if you do a lot of stopping and starting, you're bound to stall. Shifting between gears is easy, it's getting the car into 1st gear without squealing or stalling that can be a problem

Yeah practice makes perfect it will take me time to Master it, but when I do I will be the official pimp around I will go crusing everywhere and will fly up the slip over on the way to Belfast it will be cool.

After about 15 minutes, you'll be driving like a star. Standard transmission is so easy. My first car was a standard and I taught myself. Sure, I stalled it a few times, but after a few "Ok, don't do that anymore", I just figured it out.

Good luck on the tests guys, let us know how it goes.
