    I bought a 2012 six speed and I was wondering if there was a way to re tune the truck to where it will drop straight to idle? It's gotten pretty annoying and my searching hasn't gotten me anywhere.

    If you think it's bad on the Tacoma, imagine it on a 2011 Civic Si. There is no fix for it on the Civic and afaik no fix on the Tacoma. Sorry.

    I've heard the civics rev hang is horrible. The thing that irritates me is that it's difficult (almost impossible) to shift quickly and smoothly at low rpm, you have to run the revs up to about 2300 or so to get a good shift.

    I've had my 2010 for about a year now, and to be honest, I don't even notice it anymore. Not sure if it's me or the truck. ...

    If the rev didn't hang like that, people would chirp the wheels all the time on shifts because the rpm would not match the next speed being selected when accelerating. The older engines did this mechanically, but the new ones have to do it with computer logic because they have the electronic throttle body. I don't think you can do anything about it.

    Both my dads 2006 GTO and mothers 2003 Jetta TDI go straight to idle. I've gotten used to it but it's weird. You mash the gas to match revs.

    My 2010 6 speed is terrible for rev hang
    I can deal with it and shift smooth but would prefer if the engine did what I told it to do and not whatever it feels like
    any fix yet?

    I have a 2014 and don't really notice the rev hang. To me it seems more like the flywheel is just heavy and still has some inertia when you initially push down the clutch.
