Forgive me if this a stupid question as I'm still getting use to driving with a manual tranny. I notice that when I'm slowing down (for sake of example lets say I'm in fourth gear before I start to slow) if I depress and hold the clutch in and try to shift into first (while the clutch is in) I find shifting from any higher gear to first gear while moving is a little stiffer/more difficult than while at a stop. Am I doing something wrong? Should I just put the car in neutral and then brake rather than depress the clutch and shift into first knowing I'll need to be in first once I stop? I don't want to hurt my car, and I know the tranny is new, so maybe it will loosen up? Once stopped shift from any gear into first is smooth as glass....just curious what your thoughts are.
