Ok, I know this is really dumb, but I would like some pointers on driving stick. Not racing stuff just normal driving stuff. Now, I have driven stick before, just not often. So I know I can drive the car, im just not familiar with the do's and dont's. Im sure this is a dumb question, but I'd like to not burn up the clutch in the first week. :roll: Thanks in advance.

Just take your time too. I find myself grinding when I'm either rushing to change gears or I'm not paying attention. The clutch/gas pedal should be a smooth transition. You just have to find that sweet spot.

The biggest advice I got when learning to drive a stick is "When you feel yourself having trouble, push in the clutch". If it starts to stall/jerk, push in the clutch and try again.
