    I recommend to stop rubbing your stick while driving!

    I have a B&M Mega-shifter with a T handle in my truck and I had to put a nut with a couple of wahsers on it to have it how I wanted it. I can't imagine driving a manual with a T handle and not having a hard time hitting the gears right.

    Cut the top of the thread 3/4"-1", from what I read somewhere, this also helps the throw.
