also yes cvt's are bad mmkay
i have the 6mt, but even if even if someone does have an auto or cvt they can increase grip with better tires at least and learn braking and inertial control.
Every car can be a learning experience to build upon,
86 town car- restraint

91 tempo - fine inertial control(so much suspension travel you can basically pick up a corner 8 inches and float bumper over an obstacle, importance of managing heat/pace/wear(was easy to overcook brakes in the hills)

91 nx2000- importance of light weight/good braking and suspension balance(a buddy had one aswell but it had eibach springs on it and it basically ruined the car from stock.) if i could have another one i would, for me that was the car i sat in and just new i belonged

Hard-body truck- how to use the drive-line to control inertial movements

s13- importance of tires and learning that sometimes a softer suspension is faster in the real world

s14- importance of stability and smoothness (also 300zx brakes are awesome on s14 if the car is setup to be stable under heavy braking)

z32- smoothness, and that your hero's arnt always as good you hoped. great gt car still one of my favorite looking cars of all time

b15 ser- time moves on, old hero's cant always keep up, how to deal with snap over-steer(dealer sold me one with a bent rear frame that was never repaired correctly and lied about it so they paid for half of my next car :P) was an auto(taught me not all auto's are bad) and importance of not just initial braking points, but also when and how you let off the brakes and how to balance the car with just braking

q45- just relax and enjoy a big ol boat, how much just rims and tires can change the personality of a car

07 versa- sometimes rule of thumb isnt right. Sacrifice peak power for more usable power, weight balance doesn't always have to be 50/50 to be ideal(dont put too much weight in rear of hatch in winter or car becomes too polar in inertial transitions and twitchy), and really just blending together techniques from previous examples

even a pos 91 tempo taught me alot, just because a car isn't a miata or m3 doesn't mean you cant have fun/learn driving technique/improve. Learning and understanding the limitations of a chassis is an important step in progressing and every car no matter how slow or fast can teach you something

Nothing wrong there at all, I consider myself blessed as here in Texas we don't get those issues. All I have to worry about is tires dying from rubber cracking in the heat. AND the 9 million nails I run over every year from loser construction guys that purposely open trunk tailgates to let the nails loose so they don't have to clean the beds.

I literally have to fix at least 20-30 flats a year and quit paying for road hazard as the time lost simply waiting was so high I was paying the tire companies to get my stuff fixed even for free.
