    Congrats to finally getting your car.

    Youlll get used to stick shift after month or so. Its bad to ride the clutch but it cant be helped if your getting used to it.

    You should feel when the clutch is at friction point and engaged, you should feel a small push on the pedal. Try driving a brass button clutch, the pedal will literally kick out when its engaged haha

    When reversing you lightly give it gas (on/off/on/off the pedals...), so yeah reversing does involve a bit of riding the clutch.

    Does it sound like its crunching?

    Not sure what kaberp is supposed to sound like but it just might be worn 2nd gear synchro's. Whens the last time the transmission oil was changed anyway?

    Do you press the clutch all the way down? Try that, some cars requires to be a little hard on the clutch in order to shift without "kablerp" sounds. Another thing, when you're shifting to R, try to use a little more force and be sure that you've pulled the stick all the way back (if it's standard shift pattern - 1/2 3/4 5/R) :)

    Okay try this, When going in reverse, clutch in, move the stick in 3rd or 4th gear first, then into Reverse.

    Reverse dont have synchos so it will and grind sometimes when the engine is spinning too fast.

    I know there is a small problem in Acuras for going to reverse, what I do is pump the clutch once and then put it back in reverse, and when going into reverse there are 2 points or resistance, and if you put in place you are then in reverse, if you do not you get a grinding sound and dont go anywhere.
