View Full Version : transmission problems

i have a stock 97 svt cobra. when i bought it aprox 1 year ago the transmission shifted great, then one day i got a bit rough on a 1rst to 2nd shift [i pulled the stick further than i should have] i believe this is called overshifting. ever since i feel a bit of a notchy shift from 1rst to 2nd, also once in a while when going into 2nd from 1rst there is very little resistance, almost like the gear isnt there but when i let the clutch out all is ok. im wondering if any t-45 transmission drivers have had similar problems.

Sometimes after the overthrow incident, folks get a short throw shifter. Advantages would be they come with stops to prevent overthrow. But even better is, the shorter throw over stock shifting. Sometimes, not always, this helps with the rough shift between first and second.
Alot of the folks in the club like the MGW, I have a Pro 5.0, and there are many more to choose from. Hope this helps.
