Are MT Spyders having the blown second gear issue?

Miata ND MT is a crap shoot. There Are serious and well documented issues with the Manual Trans, second gear in particular. My question is for those who want the manual ensure its not the Mazda's version. Also some fraying and broken straps on the rag top.

I am an AT paddle guy. I like to eat drink and I want my right hand free.

The 124 uses the NC's manual transmission (with modified gearing), so any problems with it should have long since been sorted out. The ND's manual could not handle the torque of the Fiat engine, reportedly.
