So, I've developed an issue where the transmission seems to slip when making a hard-ish left turn. Almost like the thing skips into Neutral, RPMs shoot up and I've got no power.

Any ideas what might cause this?

Maybe an obvious idea, but....have you checked the transmission fluid?

Im assuming its a tip correct? Mine is a M/T and my clutch will slip when accelerating around turns and occasionaly in a straight line. But it seems to always slip around a turn.

He had a TIP but he traded it in on 11/7.
