Default Slicks=Broken Shift Selector...

Ok, just got my slicks mounted up, went out racing, I have never had any issues with this car. Anyways, was racing a built Ls1 camaro went to bang into 3rd gear and thats where it stayed....

Took the shift selector off and sure enough it broke, bout to buy an agp one next week (im broke now)

I was worried though, I missed a gear do to it breaking and it revved HIGH HIGH HIGH and ran like shit til the end of the track, (seemed like it was missing, sounded like a subaru). I shut it off and it seems to run fine, I drove it all the way home (5 miles) in 3rd gear. Dont know what it was...


Do I need to do anything/is there any tips I should know before instal?

You need to find the piece that broke. Hopefully it made it to the bottom of the tranny without damaging anything. The slicks are not the reason it broke. Just be sure to use the correct sealant to seal the shift selector tray.

Yeah, you might wanna pull the internals out the side of the trans case and clean out any debris. Better than breaking an input shaft though.

Drain the trans oil first before pulling the gearset. You may get lucky and it may come out of the drain tube. If not, yes, definitely find the piece in the transmission, even if that means removing the gearset through the driver's side wheel-well. If that piece is picked up by the gears, it will destroy gear teeth and a bunch of other shit and then you're looking at gear replacement and God knows what else which will be costly. Most of the time the piece is sitting at the bottom of the trans case but not always.

Actually, the piece was on top, like above the gearset. I pulled it out, so I think I am good there. However, I dont know what selant to use? I was just gonna use Black RTV, or "the right stuff", but I here theres a special mopar kind

I could have loaded up with fuel from being on the rev limiter.

Honestly I've never had a problem with high-temp RTV and I've removed that plate a ton of times. I agree with doing it right, though, because if you put too much RTV on the plate (some people cake it on), it can go into the transmission and lodge itself in oiling holes.

^ That was my main fear~ I wasn't too sure how much or how little to put on, but as the saying normally goes- better too much than not enough, probably not so in this case though. So I dropped the cash to buy the Mopar Gasket maker just to "do it right" but also because it'll only form when compressed inbetween two metallic surfaces, other than that it remains in its thick liquid form.

<woot woot 5,015 posts!> thats funny.

Horsepower doesn't break shift selectors. It is in no way, shape or form related to power. It is from people not knowing how to shift as if they are reasonable human beings.
