    @locsta06 you dont need to touch the fuel pedal until after the gear is
    engaged ( after 2nd press of clutch)

    You know how I know this guys a noob truck driver? He is using the clutch
    to shift! Put pressure on the shifter, ever so slightly let off gas and the
    shifter slides ever so easily out and let the engine slow down while moving
    the shifter to the next gear (assuming accelerating) as soon as the engine
    speed is the going the same speed as the next gear it will slide easily
    into that gear. Driving truck is easy.

    @perry244 No experience in trucking but from what I know there are
    automatics, ones with synchromesh gearbox which I assume is more like a car
    gearboxes as in single clutch shift and then the roadranger kind which
    require double clutching.
