Sounds like the 2nd gear synchronizer is shot. Been power shifting? :rolleyes:

There's no easy fix other than having a reputable trans shop go through it or opt to replace the tranny w/a good used one. :(

+1. Mine have been going for along time in 2nd and 3rd but since I changed my driving habits they've been lasting. First, shift no later than 6,100rpms if your cars modded, if not shifter much sooner. Take a little more time shifter, dont shove it into gear, kinda just let it guide into gear.

I shift earlyer, but yeah, cant force it. Some reasuring pressures ok, but don't shove it. I'm usaly shifting at 4K, but thats old habbits from learning on dieing cars
I ment 6.1k max (if your cars modded, if it doesnt have a CAI or exhuast probably 5,750max) when racing around.

The reason is your power drops off after 5,600ish stock and shifter a bit after that is probably the best as far as times go. But even worst shifter later you go from making say (btw, im just throwing out #s now) 85whp at 6,300rpm to 105whp and more tq at 4k rpms (when you shift into the next gear) and that surge of power isn't healthy

Well I usually shift at 3k to 4k not more and when I "do" race the max I go to is 5k. but anywayz I hope that it isnt too expensive to have my problem repaired... or Ill just buy a short shifter from Kinky I heard that it helps.....
My plan is to get a short shifter ,a new clutch systeme, big brakes , the KW suspension ( since cobra suspension isnt repling to my e-mail)

do you have more thats on E-bay???
and I want to change my clutch do you have any advises???
None are up yet. I need to make up the bunch, probably soon after x-mas.

Yes, I can get you several combos from 3, 4, or 6puck clutchs with any combination of pressure plates up to 1200lbs (possibly 1400lbs)...which your at it I recommend upgrading to a lightweight flywheel too since half the cost will be labor anyways. With a 6puck clutch and 1200lbs pressure plate the clutch assembly is good for like 600hp...of course the tranny isnt. I need a 50% deposite for the clutch though as it's special order only, expect UP TOO 2.5 months for it to arrive.

Haha, shweet! I think I'm going to make a post with all the parts and all the info on them soon. It'll be at least a month before I get a website up so I should do something else in the meantime especialy since I keep hearing people like you say how they can't get clutchs or something.

Oooooooo I like Kinkys words
Wanna clutch too?

As soon as Ralph comes forward or anyone else for a clutch (or anything else from that supplyier, ill make a post of what I cna get) I'll make a post about it since it's shipping from the other side of the World people would save allot if you buy togather.
