scariest thing ever happened to me :( pics in replies

Posted by   + Show Post
I had to get a truck for my second job. I've been doing some work to it and today was its mayden voyage. So I went over to my parents who live on top of a hill to pick up my sister and take her and DS to school.

Now I've driven sticks all my life. When I start them I've always put it into 1st or neutral taken off the e brake whole holding the foot break with my foot and then started the engine.

I found out this morning if done in this order without the engine on the wheel locks up and the breaks don't work.

So kids in the car I do this and we go zooming out of control down a hill with no way to stop. Well we where stopped by my parents neighbors property. The kids where laughing the whole time. Thank God no one was hurt :( I am so scared to drive it again!

There is no park. My foot was on the break. Putting it into gear. If you read the replies you can see this is how a lot.of people start sticks.

Quoting lucydiamond:

Omg why wouldn't you start it in park?!?!
