The Integra shifter was smooth, precise and very short in the throw. I've also driven Nissan's upper end standards, very nice. The last Toyota manual I drove was an '86 Celica, it was hardly anything to get excited about. But, it's been a few years. >The Classic 900 can be alittle difficult to put in 1st, especially if >you coasted to the the stop in neutral. The NG is fine there, but the throws are long, it's a little vague, and 5th is occasionally hard to find. >Reverse is not a problem if you put it in >3rd before you put in reverse. Always good advise with *any* manual tranny. It's even in the owner's manual. Bob
