Good Luck! Definitely looking forward to your results
I should really hit the strip before the summer is over. Just to see how terrible of a driver I am and how underpowered the car is. Right Phil? :)

Just got home.....So my previous best was 9.15, so I wanted to do better....

Made my first pass after getting there around 6:15pm, so car was still pretty hot....

1st pass:
Launched great, and tried shifting faster and harder than I normally do.
1.94' 60ft.
8.85@78mph

Super happy and I could have drove straight home, and been done. I was glad to finally get it into the 8s.

So I let car sit for an hour, and went and made another pass around 7:30pm.

2nd pass: (picture of timeslip)
Slipped clutch great and stomped it and car hooked and just took off. Felt really great.
1.88' 60ft.
8.80@79mph

I was super happy and didnt even try making another pass. I felt I did the best I could do. So me and my dad sat around for another 10 minutes, and we left. Wasn't many cars there at all. Very slow night at the track.

All in all, great night for the Conquest...

On a side note, notice the label the track put on the timeslip. "Grey car".....I like driving the unidentifiable car...

Well tonight sucked.....it was crowded and I made 3 passes and messed up all 3.....

First pass, I spun too much on launch and just let out and coasted....

Second and third passes, I launched great and both were around 1.95 60ft, but I could not get it into 2nd gear at all....it will go in if shifting easy but no slamming....so I just coasted those 2 passes as well....

I guarantee this 2nd nylon MK1 bushing has been thrashed also....it was brand new and has less than 100 miles on it....I'll pull it this week and replace with polarisman14's delrin bushing and see how it does next Thursday.....

Today, I removed the MK1 bushing and it was very wobbly and loose on the ball of the shifter. It wasnt rounded out like the 1st one, but it was just too wobbly...Remember, this bushing has less than 150 miles on it...

So I went ahead and removed it, and installed the Delrin bushing I got from Polarisman14. It was super tight, and I finally got it on there with a hammer, and a block of wood. It doesn't move at all once installed on the shifter. I put it in the car, and tried it out and the shifting feels solid and nice.

So now I will see how we do Thursday night, when I go back to the track...

Went to track tonight.   Made 2 passes, and same crap....car wouldn't go into 2nd gear....it will shift smooth thru all gears while cruising. But stubborn with 2nd when you're hammering it.....

So synchros are bad I guess....I have a spare trans I will swap in for the time being..but I need to look ino getting this one rebuilt I guess.....

This was the last visit to the track this year.  Maybe I'll have it ready next Spring with a few more small upgrades and see if we can get near 8.0......

I just assumed...could be wrong.  It doesn't grind, but it just won't go into 2nd.....any ideas what could be making the transmission difficult to get into 2nd gear?

i was having trouble quick shifting mine into 3rd and FunkyPhil recommended that i flush out the clutch hydraulics and it made a huge difference and it went into third much easier. only took about about a hour to flush out the master, slave, line, and install fresh fluid. might not hurt. :)

i think it may have been the only time phil has said anything productive. :P

I had a tranny that acted the same way. Fine on the street but after a launch it wouldn't go into second. No grinding, it just wouldn't go. So I swapped the tranny and all good. Tore it down and didn't see anything obvious so no idea there

have you done a drag check?
Put car in first, press clutch and rev up to your shift rpm?
