I know how to drive manual. Not competitively, just the basics (I drive a car with a Twin Clutch DSG (I drive in a city)), so I'm familiar with shifting, just not manipulating the clutch to the point where I'm comfortable with heel-toe downshifting and stuff.

I thought I'd be good at it. You know, in the rookie league, driving a MX-5, how hard could it be?

Pretty hard. Right now, I'm just concentrating on driving around the track on the limit, without spinning out. I don't even know how to adjust the car to the correct settings of the track (camber, toe, all that jazz).
