Recently bought a 6-speed, drove it for a good while.
Used up the clutch, and while driving to get it repaired (stupid as fuck I know) the whole trans got fucking destroyed. It's getting repaired for a nifty 5 grand.
The reason the clutch bust? I'm new to standard and stayed in first with clutch pressed at red lights until I had to go. Kinda did the same with stop-n-go traffic.
WELL THAT WAS FUCKING WRONG. Won't be doing that again XD
In any case, just for extra info, I drive a 2001 Toyota Celica GTS.
I love this damn ride, and I can't stand Automatic after this baby. So boring. SO, any of you veterans of the stick have tips for prolonging clutch/trans life?
Especially tips for stop-n-go traffic jams and such since I live in Hawaii.

Found a 2000 Prelude SH on CL for $3200. 130k miles, new clutch, new radiator, and new timing belt(he has all the reciepts) clean in and out, clean title. The only problems are that it has a CEL that he says is for the Evap lines. He said he replaced the whole Evap system except the Evap canister, which is what the car needs to fix the CEL. And it has a can on it, which I'd have to sell and put a stock exhaust back on. Does this seem like a good deal? It'll be a DD, not a racecar, so don't get all asshurt that it's a Honda.

Is it really worth the ~$230 to get a momo steering wheel? Or Nardi, or some other big brand?
It's for going in my Subaru 2.5RS with an STi swap. It is 400whp, and it's my DD but I also take it to track days, drag races, and mess around in the snow and rain doing mad skidz.
Also, how do I choose one? So many, look so similar.
