Where you coming around a non-level corner? I have had mine pop out of 2nd, maybe twice, when taking a sharp corner that was non-level. I have heard that the transmission mounts flex and can cause this. I have also had mine pop out of 3rd, again twice, when I was accelerating hard. I think that was because I didn't have the car completely in gear.

What would cause this?? I was driving home tonight and I put it in 2nd(it was all the way in) and let the clutch out then a couple of seconds later it popped out?? Only did it once though, never did it again after that.
