EXCiv,*without* a tach? Showing my girl the two different displays about speed vs. RPM is how I got her to understand there was a difference between them in the first place (she considered sound a distraction, not a help). Not disrespecting your idea, I'm just curious about it.
I think that with a tach people look at the tach too much when first learning stick rather then feeling it thru the pedals.

Oh, OK. I get it now!

I learned on an 8N Ford tractor. Getting in a real car with a non reversed shift pattern caused a little confusion at first.
