Did Baby Prelude (Roheryn) just need synchros? After my third clutch replacement, I started shifting using just the accelerator, not the clutch, until one day I could not shift, and then she was towed because I "abandoned" her.

I really feel like there are not any skills that I can master to 100%. Walking? No, trip for no reason. Breathing? No, sometimes try to inhale or exhale twice in a row. Drinking water? That one can be life-threatening.

I will skip the story, but some things are not worth the time to achieve 100%
