Uhm, not sure what he's talking about. Maybe someone else knows here. I learned to drive stick in Europe so I'm not familiar with the term.


Also, please turn off your CAPS as some may see this as shouting.

He is refering to the differential in a RWD car. All you need to worry about at this point is excessive wheelhop from being overzealous with your application of the accelerator ;)

He was referring to learning stick in a RWD car, could be potentially hazardous, thats if you're learning to drive stick in a RWD car you might get ancy, give it too much gas or not modulate the clutch correctly and you'll lose the rear end around a corner or something. Happened to my friend in his 91 MR2 teaching his lady how to drive stick, she went around a corner, gave it too much gas and let the clutch out suddenly, loss the rear end, took out an apartment complex mailbox and a small tree.

Yet again, your friend is refering to you "blowing" out your differential, which in a live-axle RWD car may be possible.

You have a FWD car, so as I stated above you only need to worry about wheelhop which is induced by too much power being applied at a low load.
