Which wouldn't exactly be good for the car. Or at least that would seem to be the case in my head.

that was the whole point... the instruction AFTER "depress the clutch" was "put it in first"

I thought Chris was saying wouldn't the car stall if you started it in gear without depressing the clutch.

It's got a stiff clutch that's kind of touchy, and the shifter isn't silky smooth like most late model Japanese shifters. It's more like driving an old truck, with close ratios and a shorter shifter. Hahahah.

Not in neutral.

Hell, the Fiat will start in first gear. It'll roll forward as you're starting it, but it WILL start in gear.

There are classes you can take... not too expensive.


Not sure if they require you to have your own car. It'd be kind of strange if they did.
