Alright, and as dumb as this sounds how tough are these cars to learn stick on? I have the general idea, just never owned a manual transmission...

I learned on a 94 Acura Integra. I would imagine that it would be more difficult on a Redline, considering the amount of power it has.

If you were learning on an SRT4, you'll be fine.

I think they're reasonable. My redline is my first manual, took me a few hours to get it down completely. But I had somewhat experience since I drive a 10 speed semi.

Couple little things take getting used to, but eventually you get the hang of it and it becomes second nature.

Never drove anything quite like that... lol drove a cobalt SS (stalled it like 4 times getting into first...) and I drove an srt4 like twice (been a while, never quite got the hang of it but I was catching on) so I've been watching youtube videos of how to drive manual to prepare, as dumb as that sounds.

That's true, it's all part of the fun I guess =) the weather has been terrible around here recently, but we're finally getting some decent weather now so I can go see it and see what it can really do
