ok so I was out tonite just racing around in miami when i meet up with my friend and this guy is like "yo se-r, u wunna run it?" , then i look over and it looks like every other ricy civic in miami so I'm like w.e let's go. So we do a 20mph and I have an auto transmission btw, when like in third gear my gears lock up? like @ 5000 rpms it stays there like for like 5 seconds before ABRUPTLY jumping into fourth? I'm like WDF, so the civic flys by me I'm like r u serious? a 2.5L getting spanked by a STOCK 2000 civic SI? wow...Does anyone know why this happens or how to avoid this from happening? This has happened before when im not even racing...in 2nd n 3rd gear like the engine maxes oout @ 5000 rpms and just stays there like trying to forcefully shift gears like pulling foward but not shifting? until like 5 secs later is when it shifts? WTF?
