    Before reading this I couldn't tell you iso from sae. All I know is I started with backhoe and went to a mini x on backhoe controls then when I went to a full size exc I was screwed. I felt like an idiot for a while til I re-learned. So ya, Ksss is right. Start right off with ISO.

    It's like having sex for the first time, there's going to lots of oooohhh's and aaaaaahhhhh's but there is bound to be an occasional "hey don't stick that there", but just get in there and have some fun damn it.

    Are you qualified to make that analogy? I was under the impression you've yet to bust your male cherry? :laugh:
