There's no reverse lock out but they give you an amber light that lights up when you hit reverse which is nice until the light doesn't light up because someone didn't have a tight connection and while you're at a light and you go into reverse instead of 1st is fun.. I now have a Barton short shifter with <acronym title="transmission"><acronym title="transmission">trans</acronym></acronym> bracket and the difference is phenomenal
Mine is an entirely different shifter. I see your issue with reverse on the 6 speed. Thanks for the tip on the Loctite. I plan on putting it in on Saturday. If it's noisy, I'll just crank up the base. If it shifts lousy, I'll take it back out and keep the shifter ball and the T-shirt.
