Maybe you should change it to counter-clock wise....because I thought the same thing as the other guy.

Hey Alex, could you put a link in this thread to your other thread: 2nd Gear Grind Theory- PLEASE READ!

And vice versa - link to this thread in ^ that thread - (Think it might help everyone a bit)

If we haven't figured it out by then (which I'm sure we will very soon) - I'll be putting in a fresh CC stg 2 clutch, CC flywheel, Omni CMC, Russell SS clutch line, TWM stg 2 shift assembly, motor mounts, switching to Redline MTF, and adjusting the clutch rod as neccessary once I make it back to the states, which will hopefully happen within the next few months. - At which point I'll post results, if we haven't solved this by then.

Adjust it, but if your already at halfway you shouldn't be dragging. Test for clutch drag and if you are dragging, give it a little length on the clutch rod. Make sure you clutch is on the floor before you shift, and you should be golden.

Is the rod supposed to give quite a bit? I just adjusted mine and when i turned the rod with my fingers it probably wasn't even half a rotation. I'm about to leave the house so I';; give my review in about 30-60 minutes

The clutch will engage a little later. It really isn't a big deal, just takes a little getting used to.

Yea you should be able to turn it more then that. Don't be afraid to use a little force. You want the pedal to be stiff from the second you start pushing it. Stock, there is a little soft spot before it gets firm.

I'm making a list on the original post of the people that experienced positive results from this adjustment. This will help the skeptics get an idea of how well it works! and if it isn't working, more than likely you aren't doing it correctly.

Okay well I guess I may need to redo it. I took it for a short spin and it seemed a little bit better, but I still get a notchy 2nd gear. I did not take it for a long enough drive to give a stong opinion about it. I will follow up later in the weekend.

Ahh, thank you.

Those shifts are not what I would consider, "proper" though. Why is there such a pause between the shift and acceleration? I start accelerating right after the shift.

Maybe if you had a reflash to eliminate rev-hang, it would be different.
