I took a '03 SVT Mustang Cobra out today for a test drive. I have driven manuals before obviously, just never owned one. But, driving one that had some horses to it was great. Stopping at red lights was awesome because it was another chance just to accelerate again and hear the RPM's. Awesome experience. I realize the novelty will probably wear off (when I buy the car, this one had too many miles on it for me to feel comfortable), but I think I'll manage. ;)


I wish I could try something like the steering wheel paddles on a Ferrari, no clutch on a track has got to be awesome. :D

Take a test drive in a 2002-2005 Toyota MR2 spyder SMT.

It's got a clutchless manual and it works nicely. Very fun. No way to launch the car like a normal manual though.

Clutchless manual?

Weird. I don't think I would like that.

Oh I love it when I get stuck in traffic. Try that one time, it's a pain in the ass, always shifting. :p

Don't try to save face. You still drive a Civic.

Yes, they do not have a clutch correct? I think Ferarri's with them still have launch control things though so you can still launch it or...?
