mastershift paddle shifting issues. . .

i just bought a SPF gt40 mark 11, 427IR roush, it has a master shift kit, with a paddle style style shifter, if i don't completely granny shift, it misses gears, and makes a grinding noise going in to second gear, anyone have any experience with this master shift? similar issues, suggestions?

Re: mastershift paddle shifting issues. . .

ZF transaxle? Second gear syncro is a common failure if not shifted correctly with full clutch disengagement. Is the Masterhift clutchless shifting?

EXACTLY!!!!!
Unless the transmissi9n has been extensively modified, you still need to use the clutch during gear changes...

I assume you are using the clutch right? All Mastershift does is operate the shifter, you still have to manually operate the clutch.
