    Please Help!! Shifting from 1st to 2nd

    Howdy boys. Just bought a ‘17 3.7 6-speed and I’m having trouble smoothly shifting from 1st to 2nd. I’ve had manual cars before but this is my first manual mustang. I find that if I take off slowly then I can shift smoothly from 1st to 2nd but when ur at a light who has time to go that slow...

    Holding AOD in gear - responsibly

    I’ve searched about this and most people seem to want to drag race shifting an AOD manually. I simply enjoy holding it in 2nd on country roads to be in that 2-3k rmp range instead of 1k. If I ever downshift its at the right speed to feel smooth, and only one gear at a time, not on the throttle...

    Drivetrain Shifting issues

    So I’m rounding 3rd on my 10 year overhaul and rebuild of my 1997 4.6 Mustang GT and having shifting issues. Everything in front of the firewall is brand new. The transmission is the original but worked great before pulling it. It sat for 10 years without fluid, but the openings were...

    C4 Transmission has very delayed shifts

    Hi guys, I have a 1970 mustang with a 302 and a c4 select shift transmission. Recently the transmission has been delaying its shifts more frequently as time passes.

    Noob Question

    So I just bought an 07 v6 mustang coupe that was obviously well taken care of as there isn't a scuff anywhere on it. I'm pretty sure it's all stock yet. I havnt driven stick in about 8 years so I'm just wondering roughly where people usually shift at. My last stick was a little Chevy Aveo POS...

    Best Shift Point??

    So I've been debating what the best place to shift at is when doing a hard pull. Normally i shift slightly above redline right about 6000-6100. I know the max hp is at 5250 rpm so that is about 800 rpm above peak hp. But with my stock 3.27 rear end, when i shift i drop down to 3900-4000 rpm...

    Rotational Torque And Weight Transfer = Manual Transmission Shift Issues

    This may be a bit long, so bear with me. I have a 2016 Ford Mustang GT with 6-speed manual, non-PP. I have noticed on several other forums and even Edmonds.com and Road and Track (I believe) had articles dealing with complaints of Manual Transmission on the S550 ('15+) and even the prior...
