Alright well im driving around going home and its pooring!!! puddles everywhere and i started noticing everytime i went through a puddle as im holding on to the shifknob i would put it in neutral and go left to right and everytime i went all the way to the left or right it felt like metal on metal clicking i couldnt hear it though... and i put it back in 2nd and it was all the way in gear and the shiftknob was shaking and metal on metal clicking feeling only when i went through water it did this (puddles)!!! (My car sits pretty low as well, droped it 4 inches) for a few seconds and went away! And the tranny i got it brand new only got 800miles on it its a USDM Type-r tranny... so im gonna kill myself if something is already screwing up with it.. ive one raced it maybe once after i put 500miles on it! Sorry if all that was confusing you can im me on matt22894 on AIM .. Thanks

at 50 mph or so water is as hard an impact as concrete. think about that....

are you serious? I was going thru some pretty deep pools of water :eek: at like 50 mph. I had to hold the steering wheel real tight b/c when I hit it id made a big enough impact to yank the wheel hard to one side. No problems yet tho.

HOLY CRAP! :eek . how do you get over speed bumps???
anyway, id say be careful around those puddles. expecially with that tranny. i dont think you did any real damage but dont try it again.
