The first most important thing is does your set up have a clutch pedal (Logitech G25, 27, 29 etc. have Clutches). Second how much do you know about manual driving.

Deciding when to change up in gear (dependent on terrain and speed limit of the road) is another factor (Always aim for the green zone o

For manual driving I just know that after starting up the bus and after you release the parking and bus stop brake I release the clutch slowing until the bus starts to move forward. Then I have to hold down then clutch each time I gear up and then release it. And I don't know anything about shifting down. But yea that's all I know. To be Honest.:wink:
And I don't know how to put it in neutral or reverse.
