I drive my 5sp just fine, but it is a really touchy scene on a steep hill. When in my old jeep I could "float the clutch" to avoid roll back no problem. In my 2.5i its a different story. Let the clutch out a bit too much and its stall city. Plus there is the throttle lag that still plagues me and doesnt make it any easier. Please explain what makes it "annoying as hell".

And thanks for the link 05wrxmatt, I've seen that before but it don't really answer my questions. Apparently the new system does release at some point. Trying to find out as much as I can about it since I'm seriously considering upgrading to the WRX next spring.
