Well today I went racing, I think I may have a little problem now with my C4. Car ran great minus having to low of an rpm chip. I had a 6800 in my 7AL and I need to shift at 7200. When I got back to my pit spot I didn't have reverse anymore...when I was on the line the guy ahead of me broke, I put my car in reverse backed up so they could push him off. After that I went ahead and made my run. After that I brought it home and put it on jackstands and put it in gear, the tires now move forward in every spot except park...I do run a pro brake so reverse works when I press the trans brake button, so now the tires move in the reverse spot, neutral, 1, 2, and 3 the tires are moving forward.

I will be calling Dynamic tomorrow morning but figured I would throw this out there tonight and see if anyone could have had this happen, knows whats going on, or can point me in the right direction.

Thanks for any input, I really didn't need this setback as the car was running great.

By the way this was the first pass on this transmission. Other than idle time in the garage and driving it onto the trailer when I went to have my anti roll bar installed.

Yeah I thought the same thing. I re set it, put the shifter in neutral and the trans in neutral and the only thing that was right was park. Every other spot the rear tires turn.

check to make sure your trans brake is getting power from your switch if it is make sure it is working

Yeah I tested that as well, had my mom hit the button while I was under the car and the solenoid was closing. I am bringing it to Dynamic tomorrow morning to see if they can sort it out.

Fluid level can also affect reverse. Get it full just not over full or it will puke it out.

Ok just got back from Dynamic. What happened was a bushing (excuse my lack of knowledge of the exact term) but the bushing looks like a half pizza pie...haha, bent therefore it had only forward gears. All fixed now. Supposedly this rarely happens, and it was just a fluke that it happened.

I also bought there gold synthetic trans fluid. Got it for cost so I figured i would try it out and see how it works.
