    QUESTION ABOUT CARS....how 2 drive 5speed and paper signing

    Discussion started by -MOE LESTER- - Nov 5, 2003

    yo im buying a bucket tommorow for $500, its a good deal 1990 mazda in good condition

    how does the whole paper signing process go down...do i gotta be 18 and have a drivers liscense?

    how do you drive a 5speed.....is it to accelerate its hold down clutch, shift into gear, let go of clutch, accelerate

    and for braking you hold down the clutch and the brake at the same time, then just push the accelerator if its in gear 1....break it down for me!

    The paperwork shit is one the back of the title, and they have to make
    up a bill of sale that has their same exact name that's on the title now,
    plus your name. Also, if you want to pay tax on the sale itself instead
    of at registration (which is the smartest) make the bill of sale for like
    100 bucks instead of 500... rip the state off.


    To drive.... haha this will be tough if it's your first time. Just make sure
    dude doesn't watch when you try to drive off or you might get a little
    embarrassed.


    1st gear. Clutch all the way in... push the gas in about 1/4 an inch.

    Slowly let out the clutch til you hear the engine bog down a little. Now,
    the clutch is engaging.

    Keep letting the clutch out at a SLOW PACE. Just because you start
    moving does NOT mean you can take your foot off... that's how you stall
    that shit and look like a retard. Instead, keep that same slowness going,
    but add some gas at about the same rate that you're letting the clutch
    out.


    When the clutch gets out, accelerate until you get to about 2500-3000 rpm.


    Clutch in. 2nd gear. You're gonna keep your foot on the gas a LITTLE,
    but now, you can let the clutch out a little quicker. Same for the following gears.


    Deceleration: At first, fully depress the clutch, and use your brakes to
    slow you down. If you start feeling confident:

    Clutch in. Downshift to the next gear, add a little gas, THEN release the
    clutch. Use the brake and the engine to slow you down.

    DONT DO IT MAN. WAIT TILL APRIL WHEN YOUR MOM WILL SPRING FOR IT !!!!
    BUT IF YOU ARE ... YEAH ONCE THE OWNER SIGNS THE BOTTOM OF THE TITLE ITS YOURS. I HAD MY TRUCK IN MY DRIVEWAY FOR 3 MONTHS WITH NO LICENCE, SUCKED TO RIDE MY BIKE UP TO THE TRUCK EVERYDAY.
    AS FOR STICK ... ITS FUN ... MY TRUCK WAS STICK AND I DIDNT KNOW HOW TO DRIVE IT FOR A BIT ... I THINK ITS BETTER TO LEARN HOW TO DRIVE A STICK ... MAKES YOU A MUCH BETTER DRIVER.

    MY GIRL JUST BOUGHT A NEW CAR THAT IS STICK ... SHE HAD TO LEARN HOW TO USE IT AND SHIT SHE HAS GOTTEN SO MUCH BETTER DRIVING. SHE USED TO MAKE ME SICK DRIVING BUT ITS MELLOW NOW.

    The whole key is getting the coordination down when you're letting off the clutch and giving it gas. That's the hardest part.

    Do it the way I learned. have a friend who can drive stick take you to an empty and desolate parking lot where you can practice to your hearts content. Unless you're gifted, you're going to stall like a motherfucker the first dozen times you do it but the concept catches on quick. Do this when you are SOBER.

    The real challenege is keeping your cool when you venture out into the world of other drivers with your newly aqquired skills. Whatever you do, don't panic if you stall it out in the middle of an intersection. Just look pissed like your car just shit the bed and peeps'll understand.

    once you have it down, 5-Speed is the shit. While it may suck ass when you're in bumper to bumper traffic, it will afford you infintely more control over your car than an automatic, you can corner faster and tighter as well as supplmenting your brakes through the magic of downshifting. That and it just looks way cooler to chicks that you can drive the "manly" way.

    the "CLUTCH" is a myth man just jam the car into what ever gear you want to be in, the louder it grinds the better your doing.

    i just fell out of my chair at this !!! classic .... man, this must mean i am a great driver. shit smokes alot too ... is that a good sign ??


    i had a friend who was an idiot. i was lucky enough to witness this from the passenger seat. he was going up a steep hill in a stick. ( san francisco steep) the fool shifted all the way to 3rd on the hill ... well needless to say he stalled out. with a buch of cars now waiting behind him he started to get panicky ... he put it in first and ( i still dont know how) but let out the cluth and gased it all messed up. there was white smoke pouring out from under the truck on all sides ... we didnt even make it home before he had no clutch left. we got stranded out between cities and this was pre cellphone pager era. it sucked !!! its a great laugh now !!
