Shifting the 930 trans on the track takes paleological time periods to do... I tried double clutching... that took EVEN longer. The instructor looked at me like I was nuts...

Anyone who can quickly double clutch a tail heavy 930 through (or even close to) a turn in ANY gear at speed is my hero .

I just wanted to make sure my experience is normal. Down shifting into 1st approaching a stop sign at 10-15 mph is no problem. Reverse, no problem...

But heaven forbid I come to a slow turn where the car slows down to 30 mph, I fall off the boost, and miatas fly by... Shifting to first gear would be awesome... But the gearbox doesn't like it...
