If you have a tach, with a little practice, you can down shift without the clutch. don't need it too much to upshift although it helps. I am still practicing (7,000 miles on Toto in last 1 1/2 years)
without a tach, you need more practice. drive up I 70 to the old loveland pass road and take it over the hill and back. By the time you are home you will be an expert!
take a drive down to the Colo. Springs area, fill your gas tank and head up Pikes Peak. similar results to Loveland but more fun.
When I bring Toto up your way, we can have some fun together driving our M16's around.
