I had a 2003 Acura RSX 6-speed and as I shifted through the gears it was effortless. It slipped right into each gear with no resistance. With the Gen3 I feel resistance when I shift through the gears. The best way I can think to explain it is it feels like 2 movements from 1st to neutral then from neutral to 2nd instead of one smooth shift from 1st to 2nd. (this is through all shifting, not just 1st to 2nd). Keep in mind my previous standard was a 4 cylinder Honda lol so I'm not sure if there is supposed to be a bit of resistance throughout the shifts or if it is supposed to just slide on in there. I feel like if I slam it in there I am going to break something. I watched some people racing and I see them just slam through the gears where as for me I am taking like 1 full second to make a shift (not racing around, just normal driving, but still I shift much slower). Is this normal? Should I just use a bit of strength and pull it right into 2nd from 1st (and through the other gears as well) or should it be a smooth, easy shift and something is actually wrong?
