wonder why he grinds EVERY gear at the end of the video

It sounded like it was grinding even from outside the car every time he put it back in 1st. If I had to guess, it's probably a screwed up clutch that isn't fully disengaging, hence the grinds on every single shift, and grinding when trying to get into 1st gear even when the car was stationary.

I dont know a whole lot aobut turbo systems, but could that grinding noise every time he shifts be a funny sounding blow off valve? It almost sounds like this really loud BOV I hear from my neighbor's modded STI

Is it just me or is he shifting with his right foot, hence not engaging the clutch fully?

Grind grind grind grind
That idiot is shifting with his right foot. WTF!?!? http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif He was probably used to driving automatic his whole life and think that everything driving related only utilizes the right foot.

I believe he is using a 2-step for the launching. So that takes the skill out of it pretty much.
Edit- Watched it again, it's not a 2 step.

Yep def. bad syncros or something. Also I didnt notice him hitting the clutch with his right foot until you said something.

Not all that impressive a video, I've seen a million Z-28 & 5.0 videos doing the same thing without any grinding, tranny sounds like ass.

-I saw a video of a rally WRX with a dog-box tranny its strait cut gears i think and u only need to let off the throttle 5% to shift without the clutch and that equals Grinding in every gear. I wish i had that gts-t, Looks and sounds awesome. Never mind that launch http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Key word was in the beging of the video "LOW Boost". I bet those 5.0s & Z28 didnt have HKS T51R Kai. Capable of producing 800-1000hp alone. + that Skyline is GTS not a GTR.
Still a good vid. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
