    If it's working and engaging at the right point (IE, not with the clutch pedal 1 mm from the floor) then I wouldn't worry about it.

    Honda manual transmissions rock*.

    *At least compared to some other cars I've driven, which admittedly isn't a lot.

    I'm having the same problem, good engagement, but its so effing light. My buddies, pushes your foot off it when you go, mine is like, loose I swear yet it grabs strong and only slightly slips when I shift at high rpms.

    if the clutch is engaging at the right point, and not burning, then it is fine.

    If it's not, then there might be problem. If it's not engaging, and it's that light, then the pedal might not even be connected lol.

    I got something of the same problem, my pedal is kinda firm a little low (does'nt seem to be a problem), but doesn't seem to engage. I just finished puttin the axles in and I started it up and let off the clutch, wheels didn't spin, but the speedometer went up, I don't have the linkage in so I'm not sure what gear it's in? Anyone know what the problem could be
