Tell me about it. I have had my linkage pop off more that once while trying to shift to 2nd gear real fast thereby leaving me gearless until I pulled over and reach my hand in that HOT engine compartment and pop it back on. I am hoping that removing the counterweight that will go away.

On a side not, I learned to use the tire iron cover as a heat sheild to keep from burning my hand while popping it back on.

Understeer scares the driver, oversteer scares the passenger.
