Practice these scenarios
In the neighborhood, 25 mph: Start, 1st
gear, change to second gear, run either high rpm in
second gear or low rpm in third. Sometimes run high
to low second gear depending on speed.
On the highway: High rpm in third or fourth
onto the highway at the appropriate speed, then
fifth gear (if available).
Going down a steep hill: Keep the car in a
gear that will aid the braking process, the engine
sounds like it's working but not screeching. You
may press the clutch in and out to further
complement your braking.
