Default Strange transmission issue...

does anyone else have this issue?

if im full out gassing it doing a run to come into a corner 1st to redline, 2nd to redline shift to third and it goes into the gate, but it feels like it is in neutral.... shift into fourth and back to third and its fine.

no abnormal sounds or feels just that it doesnt grab the gear....

English please.
I seriously don't understand what you're trying to explain.


if you can't get the car into 3rd and it feels "rubbery" or like it went in halfway I'd start checking bushings.

What kind of engine and differential mounts do you have? Based on your signature you've probably upgraded them, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

engine mounts are stock, diff mounts are mmr.

basically when i shift, the shifter goes into the gate (aka where you want it to) and then it just free revs.

the problem isnt getting it into the spot... its the fact that the internals of the transmission are doing something wicked.
