as for redlining..i redline 3-4 times a day if not more..car runs fine. spiffs old E30 had 200000 miles on it...and he still redlined it daily.
My trans is the same way, its getting worse actually, like if i try to put my shifter into the 2nd slot while im going 60 MPH, it just doesnt want to do it.
I think your right about the worn synchros. Im going to try some syncromax trans fluid, im hoping that will help.
