It can work, but you have to be really careful shifting and make sure the gear is "just right" or you'll actually be between shifts and toast the internals pretty quickly. The one person I knew that did this marked the shifter to tell what gear he was in. He only marked the shifter after breaking some of the internals. ciao, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives SB, CA ++++++++++++++++++ "Sine coffea nihil sum."
