I'm new to manuals and purchased a '98 Sahara a few weeks ago. Is it okay to start/launch the car in 2nd gear? I only ask because it feels like you drive literally 3 feet and it already wants to be in 2nd gear. My knowledge on the functioning of manual transmissions is crap so that's why I ask. Thanks.
I honestly cant think of the last time i used 1st gear other then when im off road and still then i use 2nd alot. the gearing is low enough to where you can start in second at a dead stop with no problem
