So last night me and my buddy decided, its a nice night lets go cruise down to my beach house in the Subi and I'd show him all the destruction down there (on the Barrier Island). So we leave and about 35-40 min after we left we are cruising down the parkway, and this Dodge Neon pulls up next to us with what looked like auto-x number on his back window and his hat backward and slanted ever-so slightly to the left. I crack a smirk, at the same time this kid locks eyes with me as if I was the first piece of food he's seen in weeks. He slams his breaks, and jerks his car from the slow lane into the middle lane, about 6 inches off my bumper. In this scenario, I do what I always do. Get in the other lane, let him get window to window with me, slow down about 5 mph, if they slow down, you baited them. This is where you honk 3 times, and watch them look like an idiot as they take off and you remain comfortably at the speed limit laughing.
When I downshifted to 5th to bait him in, my gear sounded like it was grinding. Not while it was in gear, just as I pushed the shifter from 4th into 5th I felt a little grind. I tryed to re-create this and I believe that it happens when RPM's are above 2-3k. when I accelerate in 4th, clutch in then let the rpm's drop to idle, then I push into 5th I get no grind. HELP PLEASE
