Experiencing some issues with brakes and clutch/gearbox
I've been trashing my Type R for the past five days (30 minutes per day) on the open road. It's not a track, its an open but almost closed road, so basically, I am pushing my car to the limits. After 2-3 days, I have noticed that by the end, when the car is warmed up, I would have problems with the clutch/gearbox and the brakes.
This clutch/gearbox issue doesn't allow me to change gears. I would push the clutch, and try to change it to the next gear, it wouldn't allow me. Then, I would try a higher gear (such as 5th or 6th), I still wouldn't be able to. While in neutral, I would release the clutch, push it again, and it still wouldn't allow me. I would just wait for 15-20 seconds, let it roll for a bit, then I would be able to enter a gear. I am not sure what it might be, I will go change the gearbox oil, as I think this might be the cause of the problems. The same applies for the breaks - when it is warmed up, breaks are not working properly. The breaking power is way lower than before and the breaking path is much longer. Again, I will change the brake oil, even though this might be just a case of overheating. Still, the gearbox issue troubles me more.
