Default shifter/tranny..does yours do this?

When shifting from 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd, I can occasionally feel a hard "bump" through the shifter as it's going into gear. I'm shifting gently, pausing in neutral and slowly sliding into the next gear, and rev-matching.

I have a KartBoy shifter and a 2nd generation clutch/pressure plate and 58k on the odo of my 2000 RS. My buddy's 2002 RS has a Cobb adjustable shifter, and it feels tighter, kinda stickier, and that "bump" isn't there.

Do I have worn gears/syncros? Is it the KartBoy shifter? Is there some sort of adjustment I can do?

Help appreciated?

...forgot to add, I don't have the stiffer bushings installed (yet) but maybe that's the difference?

What he said. The bushing makes more of a difference, in the shift feel, than the shifter does.

BTW...I think I know what you're talking about and I assumed it was normal.

Its not normal, you have to be very smooth with the clutch. When I first bought my car, mine did it alot, you have to let the clutch out faster or slower varying on how fast you're accelerating, and get on the gas right before the clutch reengages.

Default Slight Bump in New 03 WRX Wagon

I'm still breaking in my new 03 wagon. I've noticed a slight "bump" against my hand going from 2nd to 3rd when the clutch engages. Didn't know if this was a shifter/transmission problem, but doesn't seem related to clutch management. I was worried at first, but view it as a very minor idiosyncracy, unless somebody out there knows it's a mechanical problem or what might be causing it.

It is related to clutch management, I had the same problem for 2 months after I bought my Subaru. You just have to gain a feel for it. I have the Kartboy shifter, but I can't comment on how well the bushings work, but I seen where the bushing was when I installed my header, and it looks like a very easy install, so I may order a set soon.
