|There are three
pedals on the floor, two levers on the steering column, and one floor lever
to the left of the driver. The floor lever is neutral while in the upright
position, second gear when in the forward position while the leftmost pedal
is not depressed, and emergency brake when all the way back.
|The leftmost pedal
is first gear while depressed, second gear if the floor lever is forward when
released. The middle pedal is reverse gear and the rightmost pedal is the
brake. The right lever on the steering column is the gas, and the other lever
is the spark advance. Confused? Once you drive for a month or so, it gets
easy, but the controls are far from orthogonal. If you get into trouble, you
can just stomp on all three pedals and that will stop you pretty quick. Doing
this causes the bands in the transmission to lock up the drive train. The
best thing to remember while driving is to plan ahead.
