I thought at first I just missed but everytime I try to wot shift into third it basically just grinds...Is it cuz i'm still stock or is my clutch/tranny messed up? I heard people say all the time i missed third constantly until I got a short throw....I'm hoping i'm going through the same thing.

if its grinding with the clutch to the floor somethings f'd up. if your missing it or cant find it, re-center your clutch.

i have problems with my 3rd gear, sometimes. clutch all the way down, shift into 3rd ... sometimes it will pop back out. Almost as if I didnt push it all the way in.

I think thats all it was though
But it ONLY happens in 3rd.

Same thing thats happening to Dynasty is happening to me, Either I would push it into third and it would pop out, or it wouldnt go into third at all, even with the clutch pushed down as far as it could go. Ive gotten responses that say its from a third gear synchro that shot or could be a bent/broken shifter fork...

I only have problems with third during downshifts at moderate rpms 2000-4000. It wont go into gear sometimes but if i give it some extra force before i release the clutch it stays. Im also hoping a sts will solve my problem.

yeh its not worth WOT shifting unless your racing at the track or something worth messing your car up

I used to shift WOT and it was cool for a while but then it started grinding so I said fuck that and stopped WOT shifts. I'd maybe only do it again if I was at the track. Besides I dont even feel it helps you....I regularly race someone who always shifts WOT while I don't and we stay dead even during the shifts. A lot of times I even gain on him while shifting. I don't think its worth it at all. The only good thing is that it sounds cool.(especially if you have stage 2 :cool: )

Yup, true story. The mechanic that took out his trans said that when he removed the drain plug there were chunks of metal that came out. FYI, the tech owns an SRT.

Anyway, I have never and will never WOT shift in my car. That's obviously my opinion, but after rebuilding transmissions in class I would hate to be those syncros.:eek: I would do it only if it was my weekend race car and I could afford to beat on it like that.

It does sound cool though.:D

I rarely do it.. i dont even do it at the track.. ive only done it a handful of times just to get it right while im racing.. the one to 2nd and 4th is cake but to 3rd took sometime to get.. but the feeling is awsome..
