I guess there are a lot of 'people' out there that just dont have any idea how to actually DRIVE a manual transmission
THAT is what kills these transmissions....drivers that should be driving automatics and not breaking gearboxes thinking that they are ****ing RickyRacer
Perhaps you could tell us all how to drive a 5sp correctly if it's something different then the following.
Press clutch, put gear lever into 1st gear. Let out clutch while applying gas.
I've tried double clutching, rev matching, etc to no avail. The cocktail, Extra S and 75w90 dino oil did nothing to help the 1st gear issue.
