  • There is definitely a technique to hit it right.
  • Use this running-in period to break-in the tranny by exercising the gears at varying rpms...yes, it's a little noisy in the beginning.
  • If broken-in properly prior, the initial diff fluid change does help.
  • 6MT rewards far outweigh this one quirk.
