When I was younger I had a dirtbike, but was never good at started off, but once I got going I never had problems. Then a month before I had my license I took up driving a forklift at work. 2 speed Toyota beast. No suspension, solid tires, and a high center of gravity makes it fun if you can keep your cool and ride it on 2 wheels around a corner. After my license I got a truck and had that down after a week and found my love for a manual in that week. After a few months I had it down pat, I could've doubled clutch a downshift smoother than any upshift. Now, after going to the celica, which was even harder to start from a stop, I'd say with a short chance to feel a vehicle out I could probably drive anything standard.
