I'm actually really tempted to finally get a handle on manual gearing. I've avoided using it since I've been using L2 and R2 as side views, which I think is more useful when battling other cars. I want to see if it improves my performance in the end, although the major downside will be losing pace massively as I get up to grips. Using L2/R2 as brake and throttle just makes me feel ill inside I've honed working with the X button for the last 18 years playing racing games. There's no secret to my no-tune, in fact I only do that because I really don't understand car tuning I have no idea what makes what do what in the most part, it's all just numbers and abbreviations to me. I just move weight about, fix up a decent transmission and go. It'd be curious if someone tuned me up a car to see just how much faster I could go in it. I'm really glad things worked out the way that they did! I will definitely be sticking around and be involved in our community. I definitely haven't ruled out participating in future, but as a driver only. Nothing more.
