Apparently I have broken a synchro on 4th, months after my CR box was rebuilt at great cost.



So I have to pay for a second major repair including engine and box removal in less than 12 months.



Anyone else experienced synchro damage on their car?

0 trackdays in my ownership. H+T every downshift. Apparently it's because I shift too quickly.

It is a truck gearbox after all. My 400 gets flustered with a fast gear change, and so has every NA and S that I drove from Lotuses press fleet, especially the yellow S that had a cooked 2nd gear courtesy of one magazine. Strong gearbox assuming you don't slam shifts.
