• In Africa nearly all cars are manual, usually 5-speed with clutch, etc. It took me a while to get accustomed to an automatic, but I still want to go looking for the gears when the driving gets tough lol
  • Yes. But I don't know about truck driving or double clutching. I've driven some strange equipment but nothing over 5 speeds.

      Cars I had years back were crash (no synchromesh) into low gear. When towing a caravan up mountain passes on rugged dirt roads, if you got your double-declutch wrong (engine revs = gearbox speed) you were sunk and often the hill so steep pulling off a mission, IF you managed at all.
