Default Another WOT shifting problem, but not the same...

Alright guys, I just had a new clutch put in, and also replaced the salve while I was in there. Now that I have did the whole break in procedure I wanted to try it out. So I was going to make a run through the gears. Start in 1st punch it grab second bark the tires(I have DR's so no uncontrollable spinning ), go to hit 3rd let off clutch and punch it, hit the limiter Thought maybe I jsut missed a gear, so i repeat said process again with the same results. Well I end up just cruising along and put it into 3rd and romping on it and go to hit fourth and jsut like 3rd. Its like I hit a brick wall. I havent done the drill mod, and I'm pretty sure that should solve this, but like I said its not the same as all the other posts. Most posts I have read about not being able to get into gear at WOT includes the clutch pedal sticking to the floor. Well my clutch pedal has never once stuck to the floor, and actually is a little bit stiffer than what I think should be normal. So everyone just agree that I should just do the drill mod?

What kinda power are you putting down? Which clutch did you get?

Yes, do the drill mod. It's a pretty big restriction. I had/have the same problem and I think it might be the pressure plate that needs replacing. I guess it's just not disengaging. Also bleed the hydrualics to make sure theres no air in there.

I have had the same problem for months now...I thought it was the new clutch I put in.( still might be it)..I put in a new slave, master,drill mod, now I'm going to t56 for a rebuild...They said it sounded like a blocker ring..I know the feeling on hitting a brick wall...I can hit 1,2 wot, but try 2,3 or 3,4 and I have to back off the throttle...It'll shift all day at 5800, but anything over that and brick wall city....

I'm only putting down around 340, and I have a SPEC 2+. I dont think it could be the clutch not disengaging because it hooks like mad. I'm going to bleed the system today when I do the drill mod. But I dont think it could be air in the system because the clutch isnt spongy at all and is on the stiffer side. Thanks for the input guys!
