^ oh.. i never rev match first. And when im going in reverse i sometimes let the car move and then just drive in 1st.
oh well.. rev match is gonna be like .5k RPM right?
Anyway, MXSUPERFLY25, i know exactly what you're talking about. Every single one of them my car does. Cept the last one about the gas pedal, i dont' really konw what that means. Basically it's because of the damn rubber bushings. I drove a celica with a short shifter and it comes with aluminum bushings and it "CLICKS" into gear like it should. It's harder to shift (uses more force and muscle) but it doesn't feel mushy and "Scratchy". It just pops right into gear. For the stock shifter, i noticed that 4th gear is perfect in a way. IT doesn't do that double click thing you talk about, it just pops in. I find that usually 3rd gear and 5th gear is when it gets very scratchy and doesn't feel like a clean shift. Also, if you're going at faster RPMs, i noticed that you have to shift faster... like its about to pop out into the next gear. Cause i was going about 6K RPM and i shifted slow on purpose, and it felt like it wanted to go into the next gear. Well what im saying is that the feeling is normal and a shoft shifter will change it.
oh yeah, if it's hotter outside, or you turn the heat on (i don't know why) it gets smooth.
