Care of gearbox/transmission

Missed a shift from 2nd to 3rd this weekend while engaging the clutch to early - result = I ground the gears at around 6,000 rpm. Shifting the rest of the day seemed fine but I can't help but think there must be damage (i.e., metal fragments, etc.) that could damage the gearbox/transmission longer term. I have a 997 GT-3 (Mk I) so I know the gearbox is tougher than a standard 997, but probably not immune to damage from grinding gears.

Any suggestions for how to mitigate the situation? Should I change the fluids associated with the transmission (e.g., transmission oil, etc.)?

Any ideas or experience appreciated. Thanks.

my experience with the RS is that if the car is cold the gear changes are tough, but when the car warms up gear change is pretty easy .... i would assume you are allowing your cars oil to warm up before revving it to 6k RPM

doubt you did any damage, but i guess if you do it a few times, then yes you will damage the box ...
