been there done that....zone 5 said:Wait till you do a hard 2-3 shift, and end up in 5th
why would there be an accidental use of reverse, while the car is in forward motion the transmission doesn't allow you to push the stick over far enough to ever try to get it into reverse, just far enough to hit 5th and 6thDrFix2Fly said:I thought shifting was a little stiff when I first got the car and reverse still is a little hard to get into first thing in the morning, but after about 2K miles, things are breaking in nicely, shifting is smoother, but reverse still takes some effort. Maybe this is a good thing to prevent accidental use of reverse. I have developed the habit of finding third, then right up to reverse with no other hang ups.
i did the same thing!! lucky it wasnt a 6500 rpm shift, i am looking at a new short shifter. central nj??? i am in clinton. [have you done anything to your gto yet??]zone 5 said:Reverse is a PITA. Even when its in the garage. It seems like its fighing me.
At least it only took 2 days for the burnt clutch smell to go away after my 2-5 shift.......
i think i already have a clutch shaped indention in my floor boardXman said:I've also noticed that the range of clutch engagement is over a wider range than my Camaro and it starts engaging almost immediately off the floor. If you don't get the clutch fully depressed, that can make it harder to get it into gear.
