tranny concern

Actually yesterday I was told by my girlfriend that I am good at driving stick (good to her means that I shift smooth). Much smoother than my Jeep...

I know you said you have been driving stick for 5 years. but my question is how long have you been driving a stick on VW's. I found when I first got my VW it took me a long time to master the 1st to 2nd shift. Now I am on my second VW and i shift like a pro. [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]

just my .02

very true. shifting on other cars (nissan trucks in my case) is a totally different thing than driving a manual vw. I mastered shifting in my 96 jetta, then, a slight change to my 2000 gti vr, but about the same. best..

Not that I think about it, for a while one thing that gave me a problem with smooth shifts was the delay when you hit the gas. Notice it takes a second to accelerate after you hit the gas, so when you let of the clutch and hit the gas it will screw you up a little till you get the timing down.
