How to have driving fun responsibly/safely w/o getting onto a track

Postby LesPaulMan » Sat Jul 16, 2016 12:37 pm

Hi al,
What's gonna be the safest way to have fun driving stick w/o getting on the race track? A nice scene country backroad? I drove along Illinois 100 along that Mississippi once and it was glorious. It's a little boring though if it's just straight and just requires me to stay in top gear. I want some shifting excitement and also feast my eyes on beautiful scenery.

If you want to push the motor for all the power it has then you can use the a/c on a humid hot day.


With a Versa 1.6 I think you'll be able to be up in the rev range and keep it under 40. Just gotta be safe.
