The shudder is 100 % caused by that missing spring, it keeps the one way clutch in mesh. If you don't have it, the second gear will engage, the 1 way bearing will release, then the clutch will disengage, then the bearing will grab, then the clutch will grab, then the bearing will release.... Over and over, Causing the shudder. If you haven't yet, check out the a35 manual posted online, it's got a reply good drawing showing how the trans works.... It's kind of a trip, took me years to actually understand what is happening in there.

Eventually that hammertime will chew up the cast iron soft counter shaft gears and also destroy the one way clutch/bearing Cracking the gear housing. If your gears are chipped, your one way bearing housing is probably already cracked. The chipped gears isn't actually that bad, I've run chipped gears before, as long as you fix the underlying issue. The gears are iron on purpose so they will be sacrificial and not chew up the clutch bell gears which are steel. If it was steel on steel and you had a chip like in a differential, they would quickly destroy each other.

I dunno about that airsal kit, I've never built one but the ones I've ridden are lackluster. I would start by making a degree wheel and plotting out the port timing. Go a little wider on the exhaust and get it up to like 150 deg. There is no reason it can't rip.
