6 Speed Help, Clutch, Trans, Throwout

ok, so I know internet diagnosis is almost impossible. Some details....I have a 6 speed, all stock drivetrain, 45,000 miles and about 350 passes at the track. I run Royal purple synchromax, have deleted the CDV. My issue, I went to the track yesterday and it is nearly impossible to to a speed/power/no lift (whatever you want to call it) shift from 1st to 2nd. This is something that has gradually gotten worse. I granny shifted after the first 2 timetrials and it shifted like butter for the three rounds I lasted. So, what is the general opinion and what do you think of my plan.....I was going to get a stock clutch, and as long as I am taking the thing apart I would get a new TOB. If that works out, good for me.....if not then I would either get the trans fixed under warranty or go for an RPM trans. I still have 55,000 left on my warranty so I would rather take advantage of that and since the clutch essentially has no warranty, I can replace that on my own and TOB and at least eliminate that as an issue. Then if its still FUBAR, then pull the trans again and get it fixed.

If you're going to go for the RPM eventually, I'd have the factory warranty repair/replace your transmission first, then send that into RPM.  If you have the time to wait, they will work on yours and will likely charge you less than if you were to just swap for a pre-built transmission.

Now thats interesting dogge....I hadnt even thought of that. That does sound like a decent plan if I go the RPM route now. Thanks
