The main reason automakers focus on perfecting slushbox transmissions is to satiate customers-who-have-nothing-better-to-do-but-bitch-and-moan about "perceived" driveline slop in a manual gearbox.
I guess I'll become one of those nagging old-farts one day...Untill then I enjoy my genuine "driveline slop"

Steve's recommendation to tighten the throttle cable and bunch and then a barrel roll is spot on. I would say 90% of my DL lash/slop complaint is now outa here.

I currently have the EVO flash with a tweak. I won't say anything more because this is Steve's project.  :great:

Pardon my ignorance, but I've been following this thread and trying to understand what the procedure is to remove the DL lash; all you need to do is tighten the throttle all the way...and that's it?
Best,

Yes and no. The actual driveline lash is purely a mechanical function of how the gears fit together. However, the perceived feel of this lash can be minimized by adjusting the throttle cables as outlined by Steve. You're not changing the actual gear lash but you are taking the slop/error out of the TPS (throttle position sensor). It can make a significant difference, give it a try.
