Jan 03 build. Anyone else got this? It happens in any gear, when off the throttle (completely) and the tach dips below 2k rpm, and then the car lurches. It is quite a big lurch, if you have not noticed it, you don't have it.
Isn't that why you use the clutch
Idle is about 750-900, anything between there and around 2000 needs a fettling to the clutch to avoid the "kangerooing" effect.
To be perfectly honest you're in the wrong gear if you're letting your revs go below 2000rpm and not using the clutch
Is this your first "stick" shift?????
MINI, RX8 and MX5 - Done those............. It's now TTime
No, I've been driving a stick since I was 15, and I am now 18. I even know how to drive a non-syncronized 'dog tooth' transmission. The problem is this...When making right turns (left for you brits) you almost have to go below 2k rpm in second gear unless you want your passengers to start looking for something to hold on to. The other option is to downshift to first, but I would like to avoid first gear downshifts. So basically, if I am making a right turn, I will go below 2k rpm, and then it lurches. Under 2k rpm it is definently not lugging and when I get on the gas in second, the car pulls smoothly, but not so stongly. There is just this big lurch at 2k rpm, never below, never above. I know that it is electronics, but I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem.
