Or maybe the extra time you have the clutch in while stomping on the gas gives the box some extra time to shift.

That is true: I found that if I hold the clutch in a little longer, it gives it a better chance to shift. Just wait for the slight "click", then release clutch. Fun car :)

You could try playing with the clutch switch setting.
With the new switch I have found that in pre select you can gain some "shift time"by setting the clutch switch to close at clutch about half in.

My gear changes work sweetly using the pre=select system as it was originally designed.
Do Not go from any gear back to first as you can really do some damage to first gear.
You must be just about stopped with the wheels on their last movement before selecting first gear.
As previously mentioned I had fitted micro switches to the front of the box so that I would know when first or reverse has been engauged.
When depressing the clutch I always hold it for two to three seconds to allow time for the gear change to be made. No quick shifts at all, you will only do expensive damage.
Cheers,
Terry

Hey Terry,
Thanks for the picture.
I do get quick shifts while in pre select. Select gear, clutch in,clutch out,no problem.
Getting Cord to shift the same way in manual mode is what is bugging me.

Are you running a shortened trans cover? Nice setup.
