Cinq Thumping Out Of 2nd Gear

Hey guys and gals,

not sure if the car is going to be written off or repaired at the mo, but in the event its repaired, i have a problem with 2nd gear, if i put it in gear and let go it just slides a few mm's and sits just out of gear and if i hold it at about 4k rpm it thumps (very violently), if im holding it in i can usually keep it in gear and after a couple of thumps (car jumping about also lol) it'll return to normal (as long as i hold it in gear so it doesnt slide out), this only happens in second, all the other gears are ok, anyone got any ideas? i think the old ladies in my village are fed up of almost redline in 1st then change to stalling point in 3rd lol

Doesn't the 6 speed box give you a lower top end??

93mph at 6k revs on standard cinq sporting wheels from a mk1 6 speed box. 80mph cruise won't be a cruise any more and will be at 5150 revs.

Damn cool number of revs though, my fave VH album

I must have missed some posts, written off?

Did you have a new clutch on with the engine swap?

Re: Cinq Thumping Out Of 2nd Gear

The writing off of the cinqi is a result of a sad sorry tale which i won't go into detail about, but it has nothing to do with the gearbox>

Why the secrecy?

Have we been silly and are afraid of the ribbing?
