I have a 98rs with a 01 tranny with a brand new f1 racing stage 1 clutch installed.

Problem after installing the new clutch

when the car is running and not in motion. I can barely put it in first gear(i have to put all my weight into it), and second is bad too (but not as bad as first), third fourth and fifth is fine.

When the car is in motion then i have no problems shifting into second third fourth fifth gears.

When the car is turned off then i have no problems shifting in any gears.

Is this a clutch problem?
My mechanic took the whole tranny apart and back together so he says that the internals are fine.
My friends a mechanic and he says it might be the clutch but hes not sure.
What might be the problems?
Please help me... :d

Shifts hard, engine on. No problem shifting, engine off? Your clutch may not be fully disengaging. How does the clutch pedal feel?

Is the clutch linkage cable or hydraulic?...can never remember. You may need to adjust the cable/bleed the lines.
