Good news and congratulations!! Now please keep us posted as you get more opportunities to test it.

I'm hoping for success, but each time I've changed my tranny gear oil, I thought things were better- only to be disappointed.

Hopefully this is the fix .

I have not had a grind since I changed the master to the one made by IDEALG... and I reved the crap out the car for about a week once I got the new master I posted the videos so you guys can see..
I have 7000 km or about 4400mi since IDEALG installed mine... No issues since..

Thank-you for posting the vid- very impressive. Wish I was a little closer to Jersey, I'd go for the install as well.

I can't find the You-tube videos I was referred to for some "how-to".
Anyone have any DIY posts on this or can help me find those U-tubes?

Thanks again piticu667 .

My Car goes in to the dealership next Monday the Syncro and rings are going in

a few week wait but they are in.. I hope they get this work done with out making things worse..

But we will see..

Then off to Jannetty Racing for the New improved IdealG Master Cylinder and some get gone parts..


Will update once the car is back, not that I expect any improvement with the syncro and rings but worth the warranty work I hope to not make it worse or add new issues.

-Roger

Well.. IT WORKS! Finally got back into town to get this thing bled properly. The first time around I didn't get all the bubbles out. The shifting still sucked and I was still grinding.

I hooked up a 1/4 inch clear hose I got from HD. Fed it into a clear bottle. Turns out I did have some air left over. I bled several more times until I got 0 bubbles.

Now the short throw shifter goes like butter. Did some heavy accel with powershift and NO Grind. Lost traction between shifts. I forgot how much fun that was I could never do that with my car before bc of the nasty grind. Money well spent.
