Driving a manual transmission is a task that takes some training, but can be accomplished by pretty much anyone who puts their mind to it. Driving a manual transmission smoothly, especially one in a truck or other large vehicle, takes some knowledge and finesse. These larger vehicles are more difficult to drive smoothly because of a larger engine, more rigid transmission, and heavy flywheel.
Nowadays, manual transmission has become a lost art form as more and more people opt for the convenience and ease of an automatic. Unfortunate, considering how fun driving a manual transmission car is; you really get a sense of man-and-machine symbiosis when you master the manual transmission. And there’s nothing like some good heel-toe action.
