Agreed. This stuff about increased torque creating a failed synchro is
unfounded. Torque on the synchro is caused mainly by one's arm.
Which, if improperly applied, may constitute abuse. but not a chip.
That would contribute to in/out/intermediate shaft failure, or that of
a bearing or teeth themselves. Not synchros.
