Drivetrain shudder

Hey guys, just recently encountered a weird problem. I was doing a couple pulls in my R and when I no lift shifted 3-4 I got a loud thud/shudder upon shifting. This is the first time the car has done this. I checked engine mounts and they are torqued to spec. Just had LCA bushings replaced as well. Car is UM stage 2 with LC and NLS enabled.

Is it a single loud thud, or is it one loud thud with smaller thuds following it?

If its a single loud thud that only occurs when using NLS, you're shifting too slowly at too low of an RPM.

That would make a lot of sense. Its a single thud and I shift at 6200 to stay in the powerband. Thanks for the info man!
