    Hey Rob, is that a monster clutch that's in it? They do that.

    You have to hold the clutch for 2sec to shift gears with a dog box and will go in gear a lot smoother with no noise

    I have a PPG dogbox with an Exedy twin plate clutch in my Factory Five 818 and it is completely streetable! It's noisy as hell and sucks in traffic, but it's definitely fun!

    rob still seems to be testing the tune on the videos


    Dude, you are damaging the transmission every single time you shift a dog ring gear using the clutch. You're introducing lash between the dogs and then slamming them together and you will destroy that trans within a few thousand miles driving it like that

  • MrTilbin

    More power always takes away from driveabily. Always go for drivdabily because that wins races. Also. Proper sport cars don't have cup holders.

    Rob, I've been watching you since before your "youtube" channel was a thing on rx7club. People judged you for what you did and do and look at you now. major props. I'm putting together a 3 rotor now adn so excited. What clutch do you run in this car?

    Don't know if this has been said already, but aren't all those shift issues due to that last comment about the squeal caused by the input shaft being too long? That'd be the equivalent of a partially disengaging clutch. Would like to see how it does with a bit of an air gap there.

    If the car doesn't have cup holders you cannot drive it daily. Period. Also if you want my respect put in air conditioning.

    Isn’t the T-56 the same one in C5’s? So wouldn’t it drive the same(transmission wise) as a c5

    • Cody Ramos
      Cody Ramos

      It's been face plated... no conventional syncros to smoothly mesh into gears.. so yes t56 like the c5 or camaro z28/ss , ws6, early 2000's cobra (terminator)..think vipers had the t56 too for some years.. tremec t56 went into several vehicles.. but this is a modded t56 very race oriented for high rpm shifts but terrible for daily driving

    Every shift sounds like my TTB Ford front end finding a cigarette butt in the road. I wanna see you tear that trans down and inspect for carnage. I get their built like that but something is getting beat to shit in there .

  • Nate Rist

    Whenever I drive my SA through the drive-thru I have to turn it off as well and it’s relatively quiet at 1200rpm but still has a lopey idle as it’s streetported with a lot of overlap. Also I’d love to see you shut the pathetic automatic scum DCT losers up after you dial this car in fully.

    We use a samosas gearbox in rally cars you don’t need to grab the shift lever and move it so aggressively and fast between gears

  • WickedTRX

    When stopped shift it in to 5th, ou don't need to fully engage the gear, just enouth so the synchro engaged and stops the main shaft, then quickly shift it in to first, the drag of the clutch will start accelerating the shaft again, perfect to engage the dogs. My first daily had a broken trans, only 4th gear synchro was there, I did this every light!

    • Cody Ramos

    your transmission is essentially a motorcycle transmission now and speaking from (limited) experience it doesn't like shifting w/o clutch, if you wanna clutchless shift you either need skill or quickshifter

    Push the clutch in count to 3 then engage gear.... Dogs slowly crying... BTW I drive a H pattern straight cut ppg dog box daily


    puuh for me as a dayli,,and that is my dream,,,is that Drivetrain horrible Rob.... thats not smooth or Me sorry...it works but how.... puhhh to hard

  • GordoWG1 WG1

    What Neil means is "I drive an automated manual transmission because i can't change gears myself". There was a time when ALL gearboxes were dog engagement, and since they were in street driven cars and heavy vehicles, they were by definition "street driveable". With a bit of practice, Rob, you'll be slipping up and down the gearbox with narry a sound. Hint, a little blip should ease downshifts, especially if the (correctly adjusted) clutch isused on them - it's called "double declutching".

  • Fuchteljackson

    i know the struggle. i tried going to McAnheurism to get a bunch if CheeseStrokes and a BigClot ONCE in my FD and it was terrible since the dude taking my order refused to hear me over the car. i ended up parking it and going in to get my food. kinda miss that car but experienced rotary mechanics are extremely rare in germany

    I love it Rob. Haters gonna hate about whatever they see online. The gear shifting and some of the crunches reminded me of my late father who would always have a dig at my brothers and me if we missed gears and say “ It’s no use having teeth unless you clean Em boys” hahaha or the typical dad joke reply “Don’t worry we’ll pick that gear up on the way home” lol 😂 loving the flood of content bro. Cheers ✌️🚕💨

  • themadscientest

    It's a "street car" in that it passes inspection, it's registered, and plated. It isn't a "daily" if it does not have heat and AC, and depending on where you live RWD is not really an option for a daily.

    It seems like that transmission could benefit if you double clutch, it’s basically similar to a big rig, slam into each gear at the proper rpm for a smooth transition from each gear
