Second gear broke ?

So first gear pulls fine then when I put it into second at 2 rpm a loud clanking noise happens and it pops into neutral

Doesn't sound good. Second gear for me is also touchy. Never had a problem with it staying in place though. are you sure that you are getting it into the correct position and not only half way. I also have to really ease off the clutch when going into second, almost like first.

Synchro probably took a ****. Do a tranny service and see if any metal shavings come out.

Have you been Dumping the Clutch launching from Red to Green light races?
Abuse in dumping in 1st can cause problems to getting to second base.

Man, that's just crazy all these second gear problems on a new car. I have a 13 gt and haven't had any problems yet but it does sound like you have a synchronizer problem.
