Its really not bad at all, and thats something I was sorta worried about too. This wire thing i made into a little loop so theres no sharp edges. I did drive it for 2 days without any reverse lockout, and it wasn't bad, its just that you always gotta be careful not to go into reverse which is a bit annoying.tallkid said:sounds good existence. i just wouldnt like the wire stickin up out of there like that. when you're shiftin into reverse/1st, you usually should be stopped or at a slow roll anyways, so if you got rid of the safety thing, i dont think i'd have a problem with it.
whoever has their short shifter in and has a knob that actually makes it shorter :: it seems to me. that youd have to bend your arm in a weird angle to shift. when stock, the knob is just above the center console, so you can rest your elbow on it while shifting. with your shifter 3-4 inches lower, how much of a pain in the ass is it to shift? your throw might be a lot shorter, but i would think that itd be uncomfortable. so im asking you to become a salesman and convince me to order the short shift lever.
