I think the manual actually suggests leaving a second or two pause, before putting in reverse from a driven gear.

Just depress the clutch a few times before setting it into reverse,

Reverse doesn't have a syncromesh, so will cruntch

should really slow it down by putting it into 2nd for a bit.

putting it in any gear before putting it in reverse will slow the gear set down doesnt need to be second.

Lifting the collar up before putting it into reverse makes no difference as it only operates on a plastic stop in the bottom of the gear lever housing.

push down the clutch, give the car a sec to stop spinning, then put it in reverse u should get no crunch. also if u wanna reverse straight after start up put the clutch down before u start the engine :-)

waiting while the clutch will take longer, putting it into gear will slwo the gear down much quicker, yes, it does't have to be in second, but wouldn't advise first.

lifting up the knob makes no difference, as someone else has mentioned.

Try this out mine worked press the clutch all down and put it in first gear if you see the car is moving a bit foward with the clutch still pressed you need to adjust the clutch!
