im willing to bet it will be an expensive mistake bouncing around you will hit the shifter and knock it into reverse. id put a gate in the neutral slot so you cannt go past it either way.

just my .02

Signed up for all 4 Twisted races....may not make the first, depends on $$$. This build was more costly then expected because the parts were from diff donor vehicles. Hoping to make it.... we will see. DEFINITLY will be at the next 3 if not. See you there????

I will prob put a gate between park and reverse at some point. I won't be putting any more then that in. Keep in mind, this is no diff then how it's been for the last 2 years with the stock shifter. I didn't have any issues with "bumping" it into reverse then, can't see why that would be an issue now. I actually want to be able to slam it straight to reverse from 1st if I need to back off of something with a quickness (without hitting park tho).

I've been running zero gates between drive and reverse for quite some time. Never an issue. I won't go back. Keep your hands off the shifter unless you think you will need to shift.

Well the little shit is pretty much handled (stereo, winch, battery). Skids getting started as I type. Can't believe it's almost time to take this thing out and play....feel like a kid at Christmas!

Spintech 6222 they were $85 per.

I called them directly, they only had 2 that would fit with the long arm. This is the quieter of the 2......but like he said,yes it's quieter then the 9000 series but it's not gonna sound like a minivan.
