So I was showing my buddy the Veloster n still under 4k miles and I mis shifted from 2nd to 1st. I was full sending it lol and after I mis shifted there was a loud clunk noise, but every thing seem to still be fine. Is there anything to be concern or check?

Money shift. Maybe nothing will happen. Maybe you need an engine? How long and how many miles didn't happen ago?

Have your dealer service fo a leak down check of the cylinders. There was one here a while back who did it and severely damaged the motor. If you manually overwhelmed the rev limiter you might have a bent valve or more. Hyundai can tell if you did it, as well.

Yeah I was out of my state when I did this so I had a good 500 mile to drive back home and honestly everything seem fine just like it was before I mis shifted. The car to me seem to still be running strong because I'll gas it and all, and the car still drive great but yeah if I hear or if the car starts feeling off then I go to my dealership

If you did any damage, you'd have known pretty quick. I think you got lucky.

Does the warranty help with that?

In the future, don't grip the shifter so hard. Just because you're sending it doesn't mean you have to hold on for dear life. A lot of missed shifts are due to people forcing the shifter. Leave the white knuckles for the steering wheel. :)

This right here. There is zero need to use much force on a modern transmission. Quick but gentle movement is the key. Movement comes primarily from the wrist and elbow, not the shoulder.

I don't even understand how that guy can shift that daintily and actually move the shifter. BUT, that's kinda the goal. Decisive but gentle.
