If you require the minute handling benefits afforded by a manual transmission to adequately control your vehicle on a public road, I have serious questions about whether you should be allowed to drive on that road.
So what part of
"But these extreme conditions you speak off spring up rapidly in everyday situations, usually before and causative to a crash, when you have to slow down and change direction quickly, skipping on fundamentals is dangerous.
You simply don't learn those fundamentals in an auto because engine braking and weighting of the front suspension under deceleration is not only reduced but it is sporadic in the sense that there are hydraulic and electronic factors that a driver can't detect or predict ".
Didn't you get. ?
I said you simply don't LEARN those fundamentals in an auto , I didn't say you require fine control of weight transfer in everyday driving . but i will say that you do require fine control when you create lots of weight transfer, especially if it's off the parallel. Eg braking and turning .
Seriously if you think weight transfer provides only a "minute" advantage in vehicle control when avoidance or slowing is required then you need to question your own understanding.
