Hey, another 17 year old. Umm, just keep the revs low and try to beat the pressure to go faster. Lots to read as already stated, good thing would be to get the garage entry started.

Automatic. The only downside I can say about my car.
Is that is a little beat up inside like the interior is boring is black/blue interior
that all used up. I want to know how to make it look better.
