In the future I will try and remember this and break myself of the habit. Thanks again.
Well if you driven standard before and if it works for you then its fine. Its sorta like winterizing a car or anything. A lot of opinions but no straight and true facts
I get my resons from my dad who has maybe 200k on standard and my grandfather with probably close to a million miles on standard (nyc truck driver)... Granted they are easy on clutches because im young and i also race at the drag and like spirited driving
