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.

until it couses a problem don't worry about it plus if i just hold the clutch in for 1 more whopping second it doesn't grind

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

Racing will make it much worse.

Hope your dad enjoys overhauling trannys, might wanna look into the cost for trannys now so you are prepared.

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.
