2000 996 Shift Mechanism

Transmission and Clutch

Vehicle Information: Year: 2000; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 29035;

I bought this car jsut this past February, and one of the first things I wanted to improve was the shift feel and precision. I had a B&M short-shift kit installed and headed out to the track for a DE event. Twice, in low speed left-hand corners, when shifting from second to third, the car went into first. Very disconcerting to say the least. Usually, I am a very precise driver, however, this made me begin to wonder. I had the mechansims checked by those who insalled it, and nothing of consequence was obvious. I went back to the track, and once again caught first in a low speed left hander. On top of that, also when attempting to go from second to third in a low speed right hand corner, caught 5th, not once but twice. Needless to say, I'm gun-shy about shifting at this point. Any ideas as to what is going on, or what to look at and/or check. Car Prep: StockTotal Mileage: 29035Car Use: Combination Street and Track
