where did you get the brass bushing and is the bushing the only thing you replaced during the shifter rebuild?

You may want to first try rotating the rotors manually to rule out a seized engine. That's how I killed mine, spirited track driving

Nice!

You may want to consider a transmission brace. The shift **** is moving around quite a bit as the drivetrain gets loaded and unloads. That should make shifting easier, decrease chance of mis-shifts and decrease the chance of hurting the internals.

Maybe some poly engine and diff mounts too - if you don't already have them.

Was going to recommend the same: new engine, transmission and diff bushings.

Thanks
The car was ST-3 endurance car from Japan
Which is pretty much stock, so my plan get the best lap time as this set up

Now I clock 1.52 , which I think is good enough for some up grade now
So during this off season I will up grade most my busing to solid one

Careful about what material you make the "solid" bushings from. If you make them out of metal for example, that could cause a lot of vibration to be transmitted through the mechanicals and loosen every nut and bolt on the engine and other parts.
