In my defense, I'm not sure if you remember but... My car has had 22k I'm damage done to it. November 3rd Drunk dude hit me crushed radiator and basically a whole new body. December 8th, the day I got it back somebody rear ended me (there was a 36mph difference in our speeds...). I had a soft spot, I should have been an ass and made them total my car but I couldn't force their hand. A month later, the 7th of January we had 3 days of - 20-30 degree weather which is when third gear didn't want to go in at 65-70mph (which puts revs at about 4500) call it abuse if you wish but I don't entirely think I am to blame. When I do abuse my car (quite often as you know) I never go into third hard, first and second are where I play. I don't see how my actions could have ruined third. And it is only synchro as when I match input and output shafts it engages perfectly downshifting. I have 0 grind what so ever up shifting from second
That or the new SMurF mod ;)
