    So I've always had the high rpm lock out in a few gears, but randomly today I jumped in the car and tried to put it it in reverse. Never had had a problem before but now it was literally impossible. Figured maybe I just was a pansy today so I tried first first without pushing down, same ordeal. Well after slamming it into gear it finally goes in, barely. So I start moving down the road road and punch it, and it actually shifts better than shifting in idle or city driving. Also when I do get it into 1st and have my foot off the brake, it pulls forward, so it's obviously not disengaging correctly.

    I have a Barton short shifter. Does anyone know anything about this problem or what it could be related to? I've heard, everything from pressure plate bolts being backed out, clutch line, bad clutch(not many miles on it).

    it's clearly a clutch issue, whatever the cause. Could be a hanging throwout bearing, bent clutch fingers, warped PP or disc, bolts out, yada yada. Needs looking at immediately so you don't cause further damage.
