That hurt to watch. I guess this is where the term pay to play comes into effect.

I'll never understand why guys who can't drive stick buy sticks, when the same car comes auto.

That R was very poorly driven even excluding the money shift.

Still ran a 13.7. That S3 sounds like garbage.

As a guy who has driven stick for over 20 years I totally agree. That was some "shit-fting".

Yeah, fuck him for wanting a manual car. Only true professional drivers should be allowed to purchase cars with a man pedal.

I never said anything like that.

My point was if you aren't very good with a manual, it doesn't make much sense to buy one.

If you want to learn that's great, but it's probably not wise to start with a new Golf R.

But you're speaking from the point of view that implies this guy was just an awful driver when it could simply be "he made a terrible mistake." Which happens because we're human.

Not every gearbox is the same and banging through them on the drag strip is not the same pressure as cruising around town.

If we want to say this guy probably should have practiced a lot more before hitting the track then I can agree with that. I have serious doubts that this was his first mis-shift.

Then that leaves out 99.9% of the members here. Not me, of course, because I drove a 2-1/2-ton truck and an 11,000 pound fork truck full-time for about a year professionally, in the late 70's, for Uncle Sam. You weren't talking about driving a racecar professionally, right? Who here ever did that full-time? I don't consider wanabee's who's local bar gives them $10 to slap their decal on the back of their car professionals.

All of your shifts are perfect? You've never missed one? I know I've missed my fair share of shifts and I'm very familiar with manual transmissions. Dude made a mistake, happens to the best of us.

The gear box is crap, that’s partly to blame.

My GTI is DSG, but my project car is a 1998 Subaru Impreza thats manual. Accelerating onto the freeway, I once shifted from 4th accidentally into 3rd when I tried to go into 5th. Luckily, I didn't pull up the clutch all the way so nothing happened, but money shifting can mess up your car big time.

What's the point of shifting pass redline in a car with turbo (and full torque at 2k rpm)? Is it only to increase odds of pricey mistakes? Or to wear the engine more than necessary?
