no 2nd gear tire "squeelch"!
I had just installed my TRD exhaust and decided to test it against a Civic. 1st gear was ok, but when I hit redline and threw 2nd, the tires did not squeelch. They have always squeelched in 2nd before. I tested it a few times, and no squeelch. Does anyone have any idea of what might be causing this? any help will be appreciated. Is there something wrong with my clutch, or is my car loosing power?
Thanks

when you redline 1st, blink your eye, and by the time you open it, you should be in 2nd. Shift fast my apprentice rice
