Are you man enough?
Real men use stick shifters
Some people think changing gear manually is a waste of time when an automatic gearbox could be doing the job for you. Others share the notion that automatic gearboxes are for pussies. Real men do it manually, as stick shifters are cool and using them is no dare. Moving a long metal stick which shoves forged steel gears in the transmission box, you see, is almost engineering. Bollocks. Moving two metal sticks in the can of a heavy truck, now that is really something.
Did you get tired just watching this? Then how would you feel having to make an 18 wheeler move by lugging at a three gear lever? No driver is going to fall asleep in this cab. There’s no time for stargazing. I would love to try it, as it looks interesting, but doing it every day is a different story. The sound of the engine and the way the turbo blows off is beautiful, though. Rug-rug-rug-rug-rug-PHEW-rugrug-rug-rug-rug-PHEW…
