My new-used tranny likes to jumps out of 1st while riding the clutch (true 37's with 3.21s) although 5.13s are to be installed Monday... prior to that I am wondering if a 5.13 geared 3.8L/6spd on 37''s be cool for taking of in 2nd on flat ground?

I ask because my fiance (official wedding next week) refuses to drive it while it has the 1st gear jumpout- though I am sure it will be better with 5.13s. If not, will there be enough gear to skip 1st in traffic?

I have been starting out in 2nd gear every start for the last year. Although i have 35s and 5.13s. It is not that rough on the clutch at all really, and if it is, fuck it, in not dealing with have a 1 sec first gear and rowing like a sailor everytine i drive

there was a recall on it jumping out of gear. My trans had to be worked on because of the same thing. It did it since it was pretty much new.
