    Why does my 5th gear suck??

    I wanted to see if anyone else has this problem with their car. I have an 00 m6 with stock 3.42's. My car runs great and pulls great at WOT through all my gears till i shift to 5th. When i shift to 5th my car just loses power. At first i thought it was just how these cars were but after getting used to my car more and racing people i started feeling like something may be wrong. Ive had two of my buddies ride in my car that have had stock gears in their camaros at one time and they both say what the hell man why does your car die off when you go to 5th. Anyone else have this problem with their stock gears m6's? I thought it may be cuz of the stock 3.42's but after hearing it from my buds that their cars didnt die off like mine does makes me upset/irritated. Any help is appreciated.
