    Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Hi all, new member here. I just had a 6 speed rebuilt with a lot of new parts, and upon first test drive it pops out of 2nd gear *only on deceleration* and out of 6th gear *only on acceleration*. My mechanic said he needed to buy a shim when reassembling it. He's not super familiar with Honda...

  6. 2nd gear popping out

    Auto X & Road Racing
    Hello guys, I decided to post this here since it's something I only see while AutoX'ing. I've had 2nd gear pop out under hard braking while autocrosssing a couple of times now and it's starting to get annoying. Other than that, the tranny shifts like butter, no pop-outs or grinds. Has anyone...
  7. Stiff 1st Gear- Notchy 2nd Gear

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey all, so I had my clutch changed about 8000 km ago and in the beginning all the gears were very stiff. Eventually they smoothed out but my first to second gear have become a pain. When going into first gear everything is fine as long as I'm almost at a complete stop, but pulling it out into...

    New Member Introduction RSX
    Couple of local Type S's tempting me. I have the $$ and the want, but I have no need or room. I've lived a mostly poor life, so it's hard to change and spend. All my other cars are zero chick factor Saturns. I drive a pile and they are great on gas, and the SC actually handles well. It...

  14. Can't shift into 1st gear. Difficult to shift into 2nd gear

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I'm having a problem shifting into 1st gear. It feels like the gear is completely locked out. I can shift into to 2nd gear if I force it. When shifting out of 2nd it feels rough like it's being gripped or, like the clutch isn't disengaged. There is no difference between when the car is running...
