    mach 1 vs 240sx

    my mach still has tranny problems can only start off in 2nd gear no 1st to 2nd shifts.raced a nissan 240sx with a turbo and exhaust this morning two times. first from a dig he pulls a car ahead but i reel him in and end up 2 cars ahead. i told him i started in 2nd gear and he wants to race again so we did a roll race me in 2nd gear at 15mph i honk 3 times and we go he pulls a car and a half ahead but i reel him in going out of 2nd and into 3rd ends with me 4cars ahead.good race we wave at each other and go are own way.two weeks ago had a dig race with a 98 cobra convt me in 2nd gear he pulls almost two cars right away but i reeled him in with me one car ahead when done.nothing crazy but still good races you see a wounded mach 1 still can kick assmy car is stock but for k&n airfilter and flowmasters

    A syncro isn't going to hurt anything or make anything get worse. It'll just keep you from shifting from 1st to 2nd.
