cfm sts

does anybody have this? or can anybody vouch for it's quality? also, anybody out there with an sts without reverse lockout, is it dangerous, or have you ever slammed it into reverse on accident?

I don't have a reverse lockout on my FC shifter and never had any problem going into reverse on accident. Really don't see why anyone would...

I would trust CFM. They get a lot of great reviews here and on the jet.

Because when you shift hard after a while you tend to break the base that hold the shifter in place.

i wouldn't worry about, if you shift hard enough to break anything
stop watching fast and the furious, shifting quick is more important
than shifting hard, also you can't go in reverse by accident anyways

this will explain it's near the end of the page
