I have done the KZCMC and the CDV delete and it is really good. I can bang the gears without worry. However I *can* still induce a gear grind if doing an aggressive high RPM shift from 1-2 while doing a left turn. Anyone else have this experience? At this point is it just my poor shifting techinque?

I thought about doing both of these mods, it kinds sucks to see your saying your still getting grinds. Would you still recommend doing them?

You're gonna grind until you learn to take it easy into 2nd. There is a shitton of copium and pretend hacks on the forum but unless the clutch is explicitly dragging, just stop slamming the car into 2nd, especially if you have the car angled.

Only did a delay valve removal, but my car in the beginning never grinds once, excluding the 2 times I did myself.

It seems like its not a must issue for CTR, some batch has the grind and some don't.

Again, sorry to hear that you still can grind.

Did you adjust the clutch pedal and CMC rod? That changed it for me.

I think this is the moneyshot here. I was trying to see if I could still "induce" a grind and well I can if i launch hard at an angle lol. But overall its WAY easier to shift and the grind incidence in normal driving is virtually zero.

Absolutely! It makes the speed at which you can shift way faster and again, you'll only grind if you're pushing it or trying to launch really aggressively at an angle.

Just the CMC rod. CMC rod did nothing. Now that I did the KZCMC and the CDV delete it was a huge help. However, how did you adjust the clutch pedal? Maybe I should do that too ...
