Does all Honda MT nowadays have the rev hang?
So I have a part-time job as a DD. Tonight, I got a call from my boss because I can drive a MT well.
The clients(very chill couple; the Australian dude told me he used to mod and race cars) have an Acura CSX with a 5-speed. It was a nice little car with a pretty good gear stick; it wasn't like the 10th Gen Civic I sat in at the dealer where I couldn't even tell which gear I was getting into because they are so close together.
One thing that kinda makes it harder for me to drive, though, is the rev hang. I see it being mentioned here a lot. I would lift my foot off the gas, clutch in, shift, clutch out at a moderate speed, and there would be a slight jerk. I eventually noticed that the RPM would stay for a little bit before it starts to drop. I eventually could drive the car smoothly, but that meant letting the clutch out super, super gently and slowly.
So is that just a thing with Honda MT? That will really put me off if I were to consider a Honda MT car in the future. Neither my Corolla and RX-8 have the rev hang.
