Yay!!! I finally got that insight i was talking about a month ago... Red, 5 speed manual tranny... I have never driven a manual before today and i figured it out pretty fast... only hard thing is starting from a stop on a hill. Oh and timing when the clutch starts to slip is still kinda tricky. But still its a lot of fun to drive. :D Kinda wore down the batteries a little bit with all the practicing... have 4 bars left lol

One way to help learn using a clutch is to go to a parking lot and practice not using the gas. The Insight has a pretty aggressive idle speed control setup, so if you just sit there with your foot off the gas it's pretty easy to get the car going without using any gas at all, if you use the clutch carefully.
