    LOL!!! 2nd is one of those gears. Not hard to miss but when you do its embarrasing!!! I give alot of people rides!!! I was giving a few guys a ride at my school.... Went to pull down a 180 drift into the s curves and I usually do a down shift to 2nd and a clutch kick to power threw. LOL!! Well I missed 2nd and that screwed my clutch kick all at the same time so thank god for an e-brake as back up!!! HAHA

    Nice run tho!! keep practicing. I been drag/Drifting for 5 years now and I still miss a gear every now and again!!!

    nice kill, a win always feels better when your banging your own gears. IMO

    all you guys with the t56 need to scrap your synchros, and put in dog rings. you can then bang the gears with out using the clutch. i honestly would only do this while upshifting, but whatever. it sounds cool, and is plenty faster.

    no not neccesarily, i see guys with these in there talons all the time. it keeps the turbo spooled up instead of letting out of the throttle.

    Its also hardly a streetable setup. Its pathetic if you need dog rings in a street car because the trans is too shitty to handle the power without them.

    most guys that tear apart their trans and put dogrings in it are usually guys with nasty cars, and put straight cut gears in them. straight cut gears+dogrings = a strong ass tranny.

    I put about 4 to 5 cars on an Evo 8 around here. Dont know what he had though. The guy must have been lying if he stayed with you like he did.

    There's also something called a WOT Box. It connects to your ignition and when you make a shift it kills the engine and brings it back on as you shift. Does it in the matter of miliseconds. My friend has it, and seems to work very well at keeping up the boost.


    Good Kill BTW RiKi!

    Like I said...it may be strong, but its not streetable.

    The T56 can handle plenty of power in stock form, and if you build it up it can handle just about anything. No need for dog rings and straight cut gears if the transmission is designed for performance in the first place.
