My Ride: my favorite two feet
Sure some other people would enjoy that as well

raj hieu pat are all right. I do it everyday it's not a big deal and it becomes second nature. Unless you're on a race or heavy clutch it's super easy.

You get used to a heavy clutch as well. It used to make my left leg sore driving in traffic for the first couple of days. Don't even notice it anymore and every other clutch feels featherweight.

yea not just that, but the whole mechnism itself for the turn signal is seriously retarded and fragile, you need to be so precise or it won't work
