    The other two solutions cover most of the technical detail, but the ultimate way to make this easy if you are not used to a manual transmission is to use the Tesla Model S P85D. This car only has one gear, so you have no actual shifting to worry about. It's a bit of a barge in its stock tune, but it basically takes the transmission out of the equation. Combine with "New Driver" opposition, and one lap of the Indianapolis oval should do the job.

    BestAphid68996I didn't own the Tesla - I tried renting it but the mod wasn't available to use with a rental.

    It seems you need to own the car to use the Manual Transmission dare mod. The Tesla cost 110,00 CR.

    So, I basically followed CTM AudiRS6's guide, but I'm going to give it to you in a longer, more detailed, yet simpler format since some people seem to have some issues with this achievement.

    1. Make sure you have the mod titled "MANUAL SHIFTING" ! This is a Purple Dare Mod, by the way. If you don't own it, keep buying the $50,000 "Superior Pack" Mod Pack until you get this mod. Once you own it, go ahead and equip it, or you can wait until you are at the race start menu to equip it then. It does not matter.
    2. Go to Free Play from the Go Race Menu
    3. In GAME OPTIONS, Make sure your options look like the following (I'm only going to put the ones that might make things easier for you in some way / Actually matter):
    a. MAX DRIVARARS: 23
    d. LAPS: 3 ( 1 might be the logical answer, but with the car I used, I didn't get to 1st place until right when the 2nd lap started, and I'm always afraid of messing up. But, do 3 and you should be fine for sure )

    4. Pick any car that you own. A good car to use would be the Tesla Model S P85D as it only has one gear, so you won't need to worry about having to shift. (Credit to Swooshiain for the tip and permission to use it in my solution)
    5. Go to Select Track, and scroll over to Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Choose the 2nd one, titled "The Brickyard Speedway"
    6. Go Over to Assists and change things to how you like them. I would recommend having DAMAGE, FUEL, & TIRE WEAR set to Cosmetic, as well as REWIND turned to OFF. Not sure if that is a thing either, but it popped for me this way.

    Now that you are all set up, Go to Start Race. If the Purple Dare Mod "MANUAL SHIFTING" has not been equipped yet, do it now from the Mods menu.

    Now, you can start the race. If you controller layout hasn't been altered in any way, cn_B should be up shift, and cn_X should be down shift.
    Come in first, and the achievement should pop within a few moments.

    RedSVOGreat solution! I tried this using the Tesla (has one gear, no shifting) on the Indy Oval track but the cheevo didn't pop for me. I Replaced the Tesla with the Porsche 918, and as soon as I finished the race the achievement popped.
    Must be the uncommon "Manual Transmission" Dare Mod. I had to spend a mighty sum to get this mod to drop. :)

    DCM7734@RedSVO: Nop, it's Shifting, not transmission. It probably just didn't pop for you for some reason.

    Worst part of this for most people will be the luck of getting the mod. I spent over 6 million credits before I got it in the 50,000 credit Superior Pack. I had been buying the 25,000 150,000 and 300,000 packs and never got it in those. It is an Uncommon level rarity. Once you have it, equip it, and load up a 24 player race in free play against new racer difficulty drivatars. I used the oval indianapolis track and one lap in a GTR class R899.
