    locked out of 3rd gear

    I just got back from the track and am baffled. every time i try to shift into 3rd at redline, it "locks" me out of 3rd until i let off and the rpms drop then it lets me go in just fine. any guesses what is wrong? it does the same thing on the street. I have a built tranny with a pro 5.0

    Does it grind when it does go in? Maybe check your fluid. Could also be a bent shift fork too, if I recall correctly.
