Well I had a similar problem on my 98. I had a friend check out the tranny for me. He said third gear was going bad. The problem is tht at a fast take off at a track or light autos aren't really meant for it and eventually go bad. The solution is getting racing valves on it. I paid about 150 but because I knew the guy. I have racing valves on mine but I don't race. When I want to do a good take off they are helpful though.
