The placebo affect is scientifically proven, and common knowledge.
If people are offended by the discussion of the placebo affect, then they are the ones with a problem.
The bullying and resume boasting is very disappointing, and frankly disgraceful.
But, feel free to continue the exact same behavior you're accusing me of.

I'm not fragile, unjustifiably offended, or so insecure I feel the need to bully or censor others.
So, carry on.

Regardless, you'll all probably want to hear what I have to report in the next few days.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
When I had such an issue and got beyond the fluid change, a rebuild was in order. I replace the syncros, 3/4 shift fork to a Viper unit(mine was aluminum, Viper unit is cast iron). This was on a 2002 Firehawk. Then I used the specifically recommended Castrol fluid. Everything was good for the next 3 years until I sold it.

Dr Ego, since you prefer the public venue, I suggest you heed the advice given by the other moderators -- with your transmission and forum etiquette.

"I tried the fluid change, and didn't feel that it helped very much at all. I think I'm going to schedule a rebuild and go from there. Thanks for trying guys, but unfortunately I didn't feel the same benefits from the fluid change that you guys felt."

It seems like an easy point to make, without insulting anyone.

Again, if anyone felt insulted, that wasn't the intent, and frankly, that's them being unreasonably sensitive.
But, feel free to continue regurgitating and piling on.
I've got strong shoulders.

Now that's funny stuff. We were being unreasonably sensitive? We tried to help and you insulted everyone that tried and then we're accused of bullying you. Thank goodness you're not fragile and have strong shoulders. 😂

Oh, and it's "effect", placebo effect...

Then how come my 2016 Camaro SS manual transmission shifts like a hot knife through butter and so does my
Corvette, " genius " ?
Hope you all are enjoying your circle jerk.
Wouldn't say a word to my face at a car night, but keep chirping online.

Spent this weekend with a few SS owners.
Funny, there was no drama, and the only ones we were laughing at were the usual suspects here.

Perhaps there was no drama because you didn't call them ignorant when they tried to help you.
As for calling us out tough guy, do it again.
