Do you lose the reverse lockout with a short throw?

this shifter is far more accurate, and not nearly as sloppy, as the saab savior shifter. it's also currently in production; the saab savior shifter is not

once i'm able to confirm that, i will update the story. check back for more updates!

I will post full details soon. This is one of the prototype units. We are close to production so decided to share them. My gallery is busted so..
Ill hit the highlights before the tornado gets here.

-metric bearing on the metric shaft for no slop This one is custom made too
-Full articulation. The custom bearing won't bind up.
-Rigid mounting. No more looseness.
-couple options there will be a plain one you install or a complete ready to bolt in "pro"unit. (I am not having one of my cars loose a race as a result of a shifter problem again! silly me left the prototype in the beater car)
-Oh and it has to retain reverse ramp to get into 5th easy, adjustable too.

Some day I will show the reasons why there is a stock shifter back in my Viggen until this is done. (didn't want to have one of the guys scratch my baby so we use beaters for development.)

Send me $100 and I'll tell you how to move your arm a shorter distance when you pretend to shift.
