My uncle came up to visit today. He had hot rods back in the day and has been driving truck for 30+ years, so he knows how to handle a manual. I don't feel so bad now as he puled out of the drive in 3rd thinking it was 1st just like me
It was pretty sweet though as he got on it right away and burned rubber a good 20 feet
Caught me off guard, but man was it cool. Then the smell of my new tires filled the car, lol. Then we hit a back street and he bangs the gears hard, she was up to 80 in no time. When he hit 2nd she chirps real good. Then he takes her on the highway, as we try to merge this truck don't want to let us on and starts to speed up and merge, I'm pointing at the truck trying to get my uncle to fall in line. He wasn't having any of it. He banged the gears hard, blew by that truck and I look back and this truck is like a mile back, she was turning 4500 and sounded great. As we went by the truck the dudes buddy looked stunned, lol, was priceless. My uncle said no way that truck was going to tell him what to do. He was like a big kid again, he was smiling all day. Never seen him so happy. He said he wasn't even giving it all he could have. Then he let me drive and I am just to slow on the shifts to do what he does, I baby it compared to him, he really got up on that shiftier. I now see I need to shift much faster. He just seemed to shift it in the right spots so it keeps pulling hard. When I try it I loose allot between shifts. At least I see a little more what it can do. It hooks real nice, he got on her hard and she just gets going
Sorry, I forgot to take my camera
I had no idea he was going to driver her hard like that
You guys wold have liked that video
It was fun for sure. She temps 215 with him driving, 195-200 with me, lol.
