4th gear shaft..This spline area should all be the same the whole way. The part that is worn..is worn bad. These are almost enough to cause no 4th gear.

I suspect 50% of the carbon scarring and lack of friction material is directly related to a dozen track passes at WCBF '06.

Lol... and thank you for introducing him to us!

To all of you who missed out... as previously expressed, this fundraiser had to be handled via PM'* only because of how sly the ole BoosterSeat is... because of this, many of you were missed - even Gearheads! But! As a gift from the entire BC community - everyone is involved, regardless if personally participated or not. Boosty has no idea who was directly involved... unless you tell him

Bill, you earned it I'm sorry I missed the boat on this one.

What you've done for me was more subtle, and I don't think I've told you how much I appreciate it. Through the horrors of going from a V8 Bonneville to a V8 Chevy pickup to a 4-banger Neon, you've been there to get me to laugh at the oh-so-dismal prospect of being stuck in an underpowered car roughly the size of a lima bean. You even managed to throw in some helpful advice while laughing!

So again, congrats, and you earned it!
