Might want to find out why that shifter is "sticking".

I don't see many fellow GTO owners my way either. There have been a few sightings... But I can count them on one hand.

It's too bad. Maybe the GTO is too much of a "Sleeper"..?

You might consider Amsoil/Royal Purple/Redline Synthetic ATF for your M6. I just put Amsoil in mine and noticed a definate improvement in the shifting (did the diff as well).
Subdriver here on the forum can hook you up with Amsoil.

I drive my beater Ford all the time shifting without the clutch.

It's only 63 HP, and if I screw up that's not enough power to turn the tranny into a pile of smoldering metal bits. Does make some interesting noises when I mistime a shift though.

I had the same problem shifting into 3rd on my 05.Try shifting alittle softer,but just as fast.It seems like when you try to force it,it gets caght up between 1st and 3rd.The gear box is a little trickier than a Ford or Chevy.But its a smaller car,and your on top of the shifter.Also I've had really good luck launching around 2500rpm.Hope this helps.

I always had trouble getting into 3rd in my '00 ws6 there is just something about that gear man. But on an A4 Goat just press to the floor and hang on.Unless of course your racing an 05 gto then just hope to god he messes up his launch lol
