My buddy Dale snapped his Crankshaft, and had 2 weeks to get it back on the
track. Well, pushing almost all my clients aside, she is ready to race at

Road America GT350R Northwoods Shelby Club
Having some fun @ Road America with my Northwoods Shelby Club buddies.
We use a Jerico straight cut dog ring road race transmission. The clutch is
used to get the car rolling, otherwise during on track use the driver lifts
off the throttle sufficiently to allow the dog ring to be pulled out of
engagement staying off the throttle just long enough to allow the dog ring
to engage with the next gear. In practice, the driver can move the gear
lever faster than he can move his
foot off and back on to the throttle. Therefore the effective method is to
apply load to the gear lever with your hand and then lift the throttle foot
off and back on to the pedal as fast as physically possible. In lifting
your foot, the loaded gear lever will almost involuntarily flick to the
next gear before the foot is re-applied to the throttle.
Down-shifting has similar rules applied regarding speed of shift. Unloading
the dogs is done in the opposite manner. While braking, the dogs must be
unloaded by touching the throttle pedal. One sharp dab of the throttle is
appropriate per shift. `Blipping the throttle` just before engagement is
advisable if the rev drops between gears are over 1300 rpm, as this will
aid engagement and stabilize the car.
This allows for much faster shifts
and since there are no syncros, there are non to destroy.

car. Its pretty entertaining, the Mustang weighs 3950lbs. with fuel and
passenger. The Porsche... 2600lbs.
It was a lot of fun.
