I know I wouldn't be able to. That's a lot to think about when you're mind goes into fight/flight mode. The other day I saw an STi (sounded heavily modded to) get cut off by someone in a very heavy intersection and he tried to maneuver and shift but stalled and got fender bendered. It was not a pretty sight.
