that sucks Tim.. sorry to hear that.
i downshift from 5th to 3rd sometimes, but thats only putting it into 5k(ish) for a freeway launch.
usually, i just stick with a single gear drop.
when i first got it.. i had a buddy that downshifted from 4 to 2... and it scared the shit out of me...
hopefully its a relatively easy fix..
