T350 PROBLEM ON BURNOUT

Post by bluemonte78 » Sun Jun 14, 2015 7:16 pm

Car is race only and runs perfect 1-2-3 shift after launch. At the burnout I can not shift into 3rd and get the tires smoking only 1-2 and we are locked out ???? Start burnout in 2nd and cant shift to 3rd. Problem started in May at 1st T&T and continues. Transmission has a full manual valve body, shifter is B&M pro ratchet. Both were new / upgraded in 2011. Anybody experienced this or have ideas on how to remedy this. Thanks Larry

I have the same set up as you. I roll into the water box and put it in DR or 3rd gear and hammer it. It will shift when it want to and goes right into 3rd all by it self.
