Haha, man, and yes, a mis-shift. I was racing a GSR awhile back and I kept missing 4th. So one night I was just driving along and decided that I wanted to go fast and NOT miss 4th. So I decided (stupidly) that I would slam it down hard....into 2nd. Well my someone is doing it as side work so Im thinking its going to be under a grand but thats still all the money in my savings. Soooo, I know now not to power shift into 3rd or 4th. Also I think I might stop racing people, who knows. I just want my damn Prelude back, its such a hot car.

I have a friend that couldn't shift either. he miss shifted TWICE! from 5th to 2nd while trying to race. I have no idea how someone could do that twice in the same car. and yes, he had to have his head rebuilt both times.

sorry to hear, but hey, at least you saved alot of money on the rebuild right?

how the sweet hell do you go from 5th to 2nd in a Prelude without intention to do so? I just can't. No matter what way I pull it from 5th it goes into 4th.

btw Twiggz unless you're really going in 5th (6500 rpm at least), best downshift into third and slip it than 4th. I find that going down to 4th while at regular speeds in 5th (55-70mph) it falls right below 5k rpm.
