Definitely worth learning to drive stick for this car. I did my learning on a base model Ford Fiesta I picked up used for cheap. After realizing I liked to "row my own" but was still driving my twin-clutch EvoX mostly, I figured it was time to just go all-in and trade the Evo for the PP. I don't regret it, although I still occasionally grind gears somehow (I guess I'm just not as coordinated as I think). Still have the Fiesta, but likely going to dump it now, unless I magically get the inspiration to go back to rallycross (autocross-on-dirt, not euro head-to-head rallycross).
