I aslo have a 2k black zx3 and it grinds in third gear every now and then. I'm pretty sure its a bad syncro. I can shift into 3rd without it grinding if i hold in the clutch for an extra second and don't shift so fast. It only grinds when i shift over 3k rpm's ( which is pretty much most of the time ) but when i shift at lower rpm's there is no problem.
Definately sounds like a syncro... that sucks because tranny work is a PITA and can be big $ if you take it somewhere. If it were me Id pull the tranny myself and get it fixed. Luckily I have a few friends that work in the field of trans repair.
i did and just went with the grind lol when i was at the track i was like **** it and just shifted as fast as possible. The grind is like more of a click and i've no one else say they can here it out side of the car so i don't really care that much liek i said when it becomes a problem i'll lookk into it. I just can't see me getting my dad to take aprt my tranny and fix it. He could but he even said just wait and see if it becomes a problem
Ya know, us driving down to Connecticut at 100 MPH didnt help it that much I bet. But anyway, if you end up having to take it to a shop, let me know first. I'm friends with a guy that owns a tranny shop.
Did you miss the exit or some shit? Nick said he saw you go flying right by the exit and then slam on your brakes.
