In my car it'* one foot, but for some reason playing GT4 with the wheel and petals, it'* a 2 footed affair. No idea why.

And CC, I was also one of those lucky few that failed the drivers test the first time due to parallel parking.

Wake,
Do us all a favor and slow down when you post. It'* almost not possible to understand what you are saying here. It would help if you used full sentences and complete thoughts.

Capitalization and punctuation wouldn't hurt either.
Thanks.

Did you take it in the bonne??

I talk to people all the time and they say it was so easy...I tell them to come to the parking lot and lets do a turn radius test. Get out there and their 8' long car practically axis spins...well no **** you had it easy. Took some practice but I am not affraid to parallel park the bonne anywhere. I did it in NYC w/o a problem.

No, mom'* minivan.
The worst part was the fact that I didn't fail getting the van into the parking spot (that was cake), but when I pulled back out, I doinked a cone with the front bumper.

I drive with one foot but sometimes my brain takes over and i drive with 2 feet and don't notice. First car was a ford and had to keep my left foot ready anytime anyone 100 feet in front of me wanted to stop, and i didn't want to make them a hood ornament

I tried it on the wat to work this morning (wide, empty road). I can't drive an automatic with 2 feet!! My left foot only knows the clutch. I could not get the trick of feathering the brake right. Letting off was fine, but my left foot only knows one speed going down, all the way, fast

Is it possible to be right handed/footed to the point of being a handicap??
