Sent from a android phone obviously lol...

Does it do it on accel and decel as well, when not shifting? Could be a u-joint causing slop in the shaft. First priority is to see where the clunking is coming from.

My 99 Cobra does it too I thought they fixed it on later models.... I think there is bolt that can be replaced to fix it, someone else will chime in shortly.

Sent from an Android phone with no problems... lol... It's all in the settings and which keyboard you use.
