    I had the same problem in my RX8...and this seemed to work the same.

    Yea, good luck with that!

    You live in a great area for that car. I lived in Orange county for a while, and the back roads along the foothills are fantastic for an enthusiast driver! Have fun, and be careful.

    This happens to me all the time, but I drive a 98 nissan 240sx with a short shifter that is pretty stiff.

    I just go through all the gears 1-5, then reverse is no problem.

    I'm also looking to get a wrx 5-dr soon.. researching the deals that other club members are getting.

    post some pics of your car!
