Friday, I attempted a standard transmission. Thank you very much faboo! I managed to stall out the car only sometimes, and only when coming from a standstill. I can shift moderately well, too. Later that evening (after practice), the discovery was made (with ellf, faboo, plate_of_felt , and newcomer smidget ) that I can play pool reasonably well for someone who doesn't play pool. Question of the day: What are you passionate about? Why?
