So the idiot in the left lane going slow you just have to wait behind them the whole time? Makes no sense at all on a multi lane highway

Do you mean pass on the right shoulder in the emergency lane?
No, I mean on a two lane road, it is illegal to over-take a vehicle on the vehicle's right side (i.e. blind side). It's an old law that stems from back in the time when American cars did not have right-hand review mirrors. Two lane road means two (2) lanes going the same direction. Most states have this law, or one similar to it. The matching law to it is you are supposed to move right when over-taking cars are approaching from the rear.
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission. "Yeah, but NO ONE puts an automatic trans shift knob on a manual transmission."
