i've got an r33 gtst and i've been noticing a few times now that sometimes when i change from 4th to 5th i get a bit of hesitation in the gear stick and a kind of crruuuncccchh, has anbyone else had this problem? reckon its worth me changing the box oil? weird as it only does it sometimes and only from 4th to 5th, i'm making sure i depress the clutch fully when i change but this doesnt seem to make any difference, many thanks

Its the gearbox oil..
Theres a few thread on this and it was advised to use redline stuff......

I had a crunch from 1st to 2nd, changed gearbox oil and it was still there just not as bad, then changed it again and it disappeared for a while... Its back now, but i think i have a tiny leak?? Might be worth checking if you have a slight leak? Got to have it checked over but changing the oil should get rid of it :)

Will cost about £100 to fill your box with Redline :)

Yes, but that would alter the properties of the original lube. In the case of heavy shockproof that'd be counter-productive :)

Wheres my post gone???

I asked wether you could dilute and mix oils.

Yes but say if you do 7 part redline to 3 norm then it would still have the same effect???

I'm sure the minute you mix any oil with another you change the properties.
