    Something Is Terribly Wrong!! Help!!!

    First off, I pull up to the line and blew away a mustang, by atleast 5 lanes. Then I returned to race a hatchback civic and gave that stupid M*** F**** three cars. Then I take off, first gear, second gear and I was killing 'em, then I went to third gear and let the clutch out and it only came out half way and grinded third gear. After that something was burning and it wasnt the car I raced, it was mine!!! Ever since, when I shift hard (racing) it grinds!!! What is this? What can I do? What needs to be done? Please help, this is my baby and she is sick!!!

    My best uneducated guess is that you clutch decided that it would be a good time to take a permanant vaction.

    Synchronizers and shift fork. They came out w/ updated shift forks from aluminum to steel. Also there is an article about the clutch master cyl. return line being downsized and not replenishing the cmc fast enough. By the time you get to third you have no fluid pressure and shifting w/o a clutch. There is a fix to drill out the line. Shifting w/o the clutch will cause you to bend the shift forks and break the synchronizers or round off the synch. rings. Hope that helps.

    I belive that free mod is called the "Drill Mod" or something along those lines. From what i hear it works great. I think there was something mentioned in a recent GMHTP about that.

    My 99 TA did the same thing.
    It was a master cylinder and or slave cylinder.
    I also did the drill mod (drilled out the line restriction, so fluid returns quickly to the master cylinder when shifting gears rapidly) but not sure if it was needed with the new parts.
    Either way I did a spec 3+ clutch and Im very happy

    You need the updated master and slave cylinder from GM, and now probally a new clutch, judging by the clutch burning smell and the carbon (clutch disk material) build up on your pressure plate and clutch disk are keeping your tranny turnny slightly when your clutch is pushed to the floor. Thats why you are having probs going in and out of gear, grinding as you call it. You are not fully disengaging.

    Or maybe you could have it cleaned up and reinstalled, but if you already got it out, I say new clutch. How about a Spec brand, they rock!!
