What is reverse slam?
I see thread after thread about this, but can't find a detail.

My transmission is what I would call "harsh" when I DISENGAGE reverse. It's also "harsh" on a downshift, but I'm not certain if it's 4-3 or 3-2 shift - occurs almost exactly at 30mph slowing down.

All upshifts and other actions are silky smooth.

I'm not overly concerned with it, but just curious if this is what everyone calls "reverse slam".

Re: What is reverse slam?
When, usually after the car has gotten the tranny temp up to 'operating temp.', you try to put the car into reverse... it doens't go in nice and smooth, it BANGS/JOLTS the car into reverse like a neutral drop.

My car does this from time to time. I'm thinking about doing the wolfman reverse fix this weekend.
