My screenname is an old gaming nic. As for local meets, I don't even think I put 60 miles on the car yet. I haven't yet mastered the skill of manual shift yet. Can't go to a meet if I can't even get around town. ;P
eh, many people on this board, myself included learned the complexities of a manual transmission on our factory fresh tCs. And if you destroy your clutch, upgrade it and get a lightwieght flywheel while your at it.
