If you rely on the snychros when you shift that may be your problem.

to my understanding all focuses do it mine does it still and i just got a brand new transmission all my friends that have focuses also have the same problem when i race people think i go back into 1st gear "well they say that thats what it looks like" but if im not racing than u can see the full up right up to 3rd... u dont wanna wast that valuble time going up right up ud rather go up and slide it in so u hit the corner but thats what me and friends think =X hope u understood all that im real tired rite now lol later
