leave the bracket on but just take that 5lb weight off. this works great i just did it and the shifter already feels lighter. popping and proping the hood up took longer then to take off that little bolt
can't wait for my sts. i even thought about just hacking 4 inches off my shifter but i don't want to hack it up so i'll just buy a real sts.
yeah it sucks jay. happend to me during an autocross lol. finished that run in 90 seconds
my quickest run was around 40 seconds lol. i've had it pop off going into 4th on the on ramp but i was already approaching 90 mph so i was pushing it
