Hmmm I cant figure out if I am doing it or not. How do you shift fast then? Practice?tan said:instead of finessing it in, you "ham fist" it, forcing the shift lever (with lots of force) into gear. This screws up the synchos as well as the gears. The synchros are the first line of defense. Once that goes...then the gears. You're also fatiguing the ****er bushings faster.
It also doesn't hurt that they run sequencial dogboxes that only have to last a few hundred miles!Razlak said:The slowest part of shifting is waiting for the engine to spin down with our heavy stock flywheel. If you really want to increase shift speed, you'd need to swap it out for a lighter one. Thats how all those GT and rally cars can shift lightning fast, they run ultralight flywheels that spin down incredibly fast.
