    70, but in my parent's car.
    I had my whole family in the car as well

    I was on a dual carriageway though, so it was finneee.

    Aren't petrol cars way hard to drive though, cos I hear you can't control them on clutch alone or something?

    your whole family! I had no idea you hated your sis that much

    :no: they arent hard to drive at all, I have a bit of a habit of lifting of the clutch to quickly (oh noes) I really want to know how the hell you race because i have to get off the clutch slooooooooooowly
    gets boring

    ta duck!

    and ye this was my 4th lesson today, started manouvres(sp?!) because i aparently have steering/gears/road positioning/junctions/roundabouts/mirrors (nearly) all pretty set i need to 'fine tune'
    *cough* watch me get ini a car now and not be able to drive at all




    in reference to the petrol thing -- the car i drive at home is petrol
    it has a lot less bite so at junctions is really easy to stall whereas in the diesel you can fanny about with the clutch all you like

    also, in the petrol the gears are sensitive of the clutch (VERY) i think thats ust the car though
    it appears that you have quicker accelleration than in the diesel
    is funnn

    lol do you practise outside of lessons much, how have you managed to pack all that into 4 lessons!!!!!!!

    I stall a lot less now, and your right about the clutch sensititvy thing,
    I much prefer the higher gears they are so much more smoother when accelerating
    I wanna try a diesel now!!!!!!!!!!!
