Five things I learned to drive a manual car
Release date: 2019.06.06
To Kobe by manual car
Since the delivery of the BMW 320i, I am riding every day for practice. When driving for the first time, I'm slammed, and I'm not nervous enough to step on the clutch or the hand that has the shift lever is also a snap. "What will happen in the future ..."On the second day, I was getting used to it, and I was less likely to get on the engine, and on the third day I almost stopped running, and I was scared to take off slopes.
In fact, on the delivery dayThis is it!I thought, "I purchased the following sticker at Amazon, but since I was used by the time I arrived, I no longer need to attach it. Do you leave it for practice of GT3 touring?
And the fifth day. I felt good,From home to the mosaic of Kobe Harborland, try running for about 40 minutes with 320iIt was to be. Or, to the girlsI want to go to the Anpanman Museum"Because I was deceived, I felt that I went to a while thinking" I am absolutely disgusted though it is crowded "but ... LOL
Take the Hanshin Expressway at 320i
You can go from your home to Harborland without using the expressway, according to NaviIt is better to go through the Hanshin ExpresswayIn the beginning, I decided to use the Hanshin Express to go as Nabi said. by the way,At 320iIt is the first time to get on the highwayIt is.
Make sure the ETC is set and accelerate past the toll gate. Although the displacement is not large because it is 2000 CC, because you can operate the gear by yourself,I was able to enjoy a steady acceleration.
Wow, MT feels good ...!
Entering the highway, I was running scared at first in the driving lane, but once I got into the flow it was like an AT car, so I changed the lane to an overtaking lane.As expected the 320i, lane change at high speed, stable without carringWas.
On the way, there were places where I was driven sloppyly due to traffic congestion, but I was able to reach Harborland safely even after getting off at high speed with a gap between the vehicles, passing through the 1st speed start in a row.
I got to drive a manual car
After playing a lot at the Anpanman Museum and umie, I was able to safely return to my home with the children who were sleeping. It is not long before I drive an MT car,Some points I felt when I started to drive an MT caris there. I decided to write to my blog before I forget it.
Drive with an inter-vehicle distance
Get on a MT car,Driving with a distance between carsIt became so. It is scary to think that the previous car suddenly stops, and if you keep the distance as far as possible, you can run smoothly without stopping the car. After, if the distance between cars is too close,Stop, start, stop, startBecause it becomes a repetition of "w
Also check the distant signal
When I was in an AT car, I was only aware that "the signal in front of you was blue, yellow, or red", but when I got on an MT car, I would like to see until the signal ahead Became.
When the previous signal turns red, "the previous signal will also turn red,Slow down a bit and shift downI think it's better to keep it, "on the contrary, if it is blue until the previous signal," from hereIt is safe to drive up to about 4 speedsI understand. " I started to drive properly when I read ahead.
I was conscious of the AT car, but in the case of the MT car "The area where shift operation and clutch operation can be performed even if your eyes are still closedAs I was not aware of that, I started to drive so that I could handle it at any time, being aware of "a possible driving", such as whether that person would suddenly come out, or if that car would suddenly come in.
Listen to the sound of the car
When I was driving an AT car, I hardly listened to the sounds and voices of the car while driving. Even if you are consciousThe engine sounds cool ~"Well, has the muffler burned and the engine sound louder than before?"degree.
However, after becoming an MT car, I started to listen to the subtle changes in engine noise when releasing the clutch on a slope start. Also"Now that the car is in trouble, I have to shift up."And"I'm sorry! 4 speed and 2 speed were wrong!"Laughs" (laughs), while listening to the car's voice properly, I became conscious of driving the car.
It became kind to people who did not start with green light
Occasionally, I come across people who turn green but do not start. Maybe you're looking at a smartphone, or you're crazy about talking and don't notice that the signal has changed. Before that time, I used to squeeze a horn, but now, "Maybe,MT driving newbie, it may be on the way to the clutch now I'm afraid"I thought," I got to wait until I got off (laughs).
Well, I guess that's not the case.
It becomes safe driving when we get on a manual car
In short,safe driveGot to Fewer vehicles can rely on cars than AT cars,As you are often left to your own operation, drive with a sense of tensionIt will be a body. I'm still not completely used to MT cars.
At this school, most people get an AT-limited license, but at first I think it would be better to take it by MT. I wonder if that person will have a growing awareness of driving safely with their own hands and feeling.(I did not get lost but I was limited to AT, though)
Maybe because I was driving like this, while I was running normally in the neighborhood the other day,I was knocked out from the side by Lexus LS which Grandpa drives,I felt that I could not say anything but ... w Well, I've never exceeded safe driving, so I would like to keep in mind not only MT cars and AT cars but also safe driving.
