A man that finally makes sense. Posting blog after blog isn't going to help you out. If you don't know how to drive a standard properly that says alot about your love a driving .... well you bought an entry level sub compact that was out of your driving ability. Take 2 hours of your life. Do 100 dry pavement starts, perfect it. Take your car in for a new clutch (and hopefully not a $300 dual mass flywheel) and you've got it. From a kid thats from outer space..............

lol, man, I honestly don't know how to take this. I can tell you I am way better than I was when I got the car. I've had a few late nights on the interstate by myself just stopping, running, over and over. I'll get there eventually. Wish I had money for a new clutch btw.

Good man.. Driving is all about consistency and smoothness, like a river. Speed is a byproduct. 1st. gear till 28 mph, second to 62mph, third to 90mph and fourth till you hit the speedlimiter. Once you can do that 100% then its time to upgrade!!

My PZEV has diffrent gear ratios than the 2.0. I'm trying to find a way to switch 3-5th in mine, yet no trans shop wants to take on the challenge. This would bring the stock transmission closer to a close ratio trans..a true 5 speed.... than fords mentality of the four speed with over drive.

Learn how to really drive your car first and if you going to do a 20 roll, start in 1st gear and power shift into 2nd ;-) also have NO ONE in the car because weight counts especially since you had 5 people in the car which was stupid to race with unless you had a turbo to compensate for 600-800lbs of extra weight I'm guessing...? So not only did you have less power but you had more weight!
