Default strange problem...need opinions

when driving my car hard for the first time after a tranny rebuild and new ACT clutch, I shift into second after a low RPM launch(@2k) I hear a loud noise and then the motor just free spins, I think it just popped out of gear so with the clutch in I try to grab second again but it's already there...let out of the clutch again and it's still free spinning, and it's stuck in second. I pull over and forcibly take it out of gear and it takes me 30-45 seconds of massaging to get it into ANY gear. I also heard some intermittant ticking(loud at first but very quiet now). anyone had this problem besides me? at first I was thinking it was a shattered second gear, but the car is still driveable, just no second gear or third gear syncro. tomorrow I'm draining the fluid to see what is in there rattling around, but I'm just trying to get some opinions on what it could be. my best guess is a broken shift-fork or bent shift-fork actuator rod. anybody else got any ideas??

thanks,
scott

Default great...

come on man, that's not what I wanted to hear I am afraid of that...also I've been a subscriber to the "Chalak Syncro" thread since day one...looks more and more inevitable everyday. I just wish I could go ahead and settle my stupid accident/insurance thing and get paid and get my car fixed...I was told by the dealer that if it is 2nd gear, all bets are off and I get to fix it myself...oh well, we'll see tomorrow!
