Manual Driving Tips Threads of Interest

Post by jomotopia » Thu Feb 08, 2007 3:41 pm

This thread is for links to threads in this section that have some good info on common questions, issues, and discussions. It's not intended to replace the FAQ 2.0, the first place everyone should look for their questions, but as a supplement to see discussions rather than just Q&A. If you come across a thread that you feel should be added, PM me or another moderator and we will take a look. So far I've only gone back a few pages. I'm sure I'll be adding more threads to this as I have time.
