Lol I did say no bashing but hey you actually threw your two cents in it so ill accept it. I didn't do a hardshift when I grabbed second, I did it normally almost like a granny shift. It was raining so there was no reason for me to act a fool but I did use to do it a lot when I was younger and when I first had my car. Any idea how much the kit would cost?

I can't deny I've done this quite a few times after getting my cdv installed but it didn't seem reasonable last night.

Please keep us updated!
Will do! Thanks for your input, I thought of the same thing this morning. But my car was still able to drive up the driveway when I balanced out no problem but I didn't release the clutch all the way

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
