Resting hand on shift knob bad?
Over the weekend, a friend mentioned that he heard that resting your hand on the shift knob was bad for the transmission. He didn't know if it was true or not, but he said that it had to do with the pressure from the hand preventing enough of a lubrication gap between the gears or something like that. Not to mention driving with one hand doesn't give you optimum control of the steering wheel (I can agree to that).
But do you guys know if there's any truth in that? Thanks!
