Relax. This thing's got so much torque, it's hard to stall.gage said:allright. This is my first new car and Im always nervous and I go downstairs sometimes to make sure shes locked and things
I was also worried as this is my first standard shift vehicle, but I have never grinded a gear or dropped the clutch or things, and in fact I havent stalled in the past 3 or 4 days
If you do a search, this topic has come up several times in the past (I was one who inquired as well). Perfectly normal and goes away after 1200-1500 miles.gage said:well I have stalled her a few times lol but yea she has been much easier to get going than the Honda I practiced on
gage said:She has less than 200 miles on here, and sometimes after Ive been driving for a while near the rear of the vehicle I can smell a slight burning?
Is this cause for concern or am I just being overly paranoid?
Interesting that you write that, Gage (about shifting). I'm finding that shifting into 2nd is the "pickiest" on my goat. It is picky whether downshifting or upshifting to 2nd. When going to 2nd, I better have the clutch all the way to the floor, and not a bit higher. Also, it is the "stiffest" on the clutch (if that makes sense; unfortunately I don't know the technical terms. All other gears are a lot smoother. Wonder if your goat is similar, and maybe it at least partially has to do with the goat, and not just us drivers.gage said:okie, that helps.
Now if I can just shift from first to second as well I can from 2-3 and 3-4!
