Driving Manual Transmission in Heavy City Traffic

Sorry no planned lesson for this video and this one camera facing the road doesn’t seem very good what a shame. Just thought I would bring the cameras along and you may enjoy watching this stick shift drive into downtown Toronto. I guess the obvious lesson here is that unlike highway traffic where you can

Sorry no planned lesson for this video and this one camera facing the road doesn’t seem very good what a shame. Just thought I would bring the cameras along and you may enjoy watching this stick shift drive into downtown Toronto. I guess the obvious lesson here is that unlike highway traffic where you can give space ,in a city situation with traffic lights it is not the best thing to do as cars behind you will get stuck in between lights and the benefit is not always there as you are in stop and go traffic with no flow. So it is important that you are good with your stops and starts. You can see some rev match downshifting at 5:38 and see how much smoother and faster it is vs just going down a gear and letting your clutch out. Also watch that without much traffic on the highway at the beginning I don’t have to shift, use the clutch or even brake at all, very similar to driving an auto. I do have more lesson videos coming up , thanks for watching, liking and subscribing.
