I have a 2002 IS300 5-speed and I recently replaced new clutch kit and flywheel, I noticed the first gear is a little hard to get the "start point", sometimes I feel like a "slip" but I am not sure. I haven't been able to have a clean launch with the first gear, all other gears shifts smoothly. What problem might it be? Thank you!
