Yes, absolutely! The sliding collar is pushed against the toothed narrow "blocking ring" between the collar and gear by the three INSERTS, forcing the gear to come up to the same speed as the blocking ring/collar assembly. That's called synchronization.

There are 3 inserts. They can work their way out from greatly worn blocking rings or extremely heavy shifting efforts, or both. With one missing, inadequate and uneven synchronization action takes place. I would replace parts as needed. Tremec specs a certain minimum distance to be used as a wear limit between rings and gears.
