Shifting from 5th to 6th.

I've noticed that I sometimes get hung up when shifting from 5th to 6th. It usually takes a bit more "solid" of a shift than shifting into the other gears.

Default Shifting from 5th to 6th.

I've noticed that I sometimes get hung up when shifting from 5th to 6th. It usually takes a bit more "solid" of a shift than shifting into the other gears. I'm used to driving 5MT mostly so I don't know if it's just me. This is during normal around town driving. If I try and shift a bit more spiritedly, the shift is a bit smoother. Anyone else experience this?

Probably just a bad angle while trying to enter the gates. The Z tranny needs to be warm or it's pretty firm. It still doesn't glide into gears and you can't "throw" it into gear even when warm. Just take it a little easier especially when cold and you'll be fine. Nothing abnormal.
