    wow.... They can hit 90 with their 3rd?

    Too bad those Si aren't faster stock. They'd make a great daily driver with that kind of gearing IMO.

    That hurts!

    I misshifted in my '92 Vette once (2nd to 1st).... all that happened was a neck snapping slowdown when I let out the clutch. I reacted quickly enough that it wasn't engaged for long. The engine was fine. YAY LT1!

    Have you guys seen the red RSX that did a 14,000 rpm mis-shift and reduced three pistons into potato-like nuggets?

    Missed shift from third to fourth and went to second at high speeds... drivetrain speed was enough to drag the engine speed up to 11,500 rpms..... Really not such a good thing....

    poor guy

    I wonder if it would have survived if the engine only went to 10k rpm's....probably not.

    SuXoR!

    Damn, I remember there was a guy from Maryland on vwvortex.com who was saving his money for quite a while so he could buy an APR stage III turbo kit. He was hot dogging in his gf's E36 M3 and got 2nd instead of 3rd......needless to say he had to spend his money on the engine rebuild, not cheap in a BMW.
