I'm finally getting the hang of this whole standard-shift thing, but I'm curious about something: how slow can I get in each gear before I risk stalling the car? I've been playing it on the ultra-safe side and clutching in as soon as I start to decelerate for a full stop in a higher gear, but I don't want to wear down the clutch too fast (heaven knows I've already taken about a year off its life while learning to drive). I know 1st gear goes down to about 5 or 6 mph before getting risky, and 2nd down to about 11 mph, but what about 3rd-5th? I know I could probably figure it out myself just by watching the tachometer, but I figured it'd be safer if I just posted here.
Many thanks for answering my q's. The help I have received on this forum has been utterly invaluable.
P.S. for those wondering, I opted to have the car delivered instead of trying to drive it up from Anaheim myself. This proved quite wise, as it's taken me at least a week to get a decent mastery of driving stick. And next week, I should be getting my new speakers (those Pioneers that everyone's been talking about) and a new CD/MP3 receiver!
