Damnit! not again
Well, Im out strolling I-35 today and I see a black TA in the left lane and a red GTO in the right lane behind me.
SO, I slow down seeing if anyone wants any. The TA rolls off slow, the GTO comes up, gives me the nod, and I wait for him to punch it. So i go from 6th to 4th, and would have had him easily. But, alas, bitch went into second again. smoked the tires, trac control kicks in, I hit over to 4th and hang, but hes already 60' in front.
This happened to me a year ago, and now i have some noise from the top end, but still runs fine. I know the tranny needs a rebuild, but are the forks loose? linkage loose? Its gotten sloppier through the years, and has 96k on it now.

I had a buddy that did the exact same thing, ended up bending a pushrod, replaced the push rod and no more ticking. Not saying thats your issue but its something to look at.
J2001 SS, Its not the car its the Driver that matters....

That's one thing the rev limiter will not save you on. Downshifting and mechanically forcing the engine to rev past redline. Bad things happen.

Wow how do you not realize? Maybe your trans does have some internal linkage issues
