when i push first gear into higher revs, like 5k, and i change to second gear, the car stalls. Its annoying because i dont want to be honked at from behind so i want to accelerate quicker, but then the car stalls on second. Any one else experience this?

yes its called dbw lag, it happens sometimes 90% of the time its fine, and its not a stall, its a donkey punch, where it throws you forward and back in the seat... you could try letting in the clutch slower, making for a smoother engagment. cheers.
