went to hunting store and bought $5 box of zinc coated lead LARGE bb's, 2000#, took a pc of clear shipping tape and placed it sticky side up, poured as many bbs that would stick to tape,maybe 100, took another pc of tape and sanwiched the bbs between tape. then i carefully pried plastic shifter boot housing up w flat screwdriver from center of side facing the car rear. lift up and 2 tabs at other end of housing will lift out, now invert the boot snd expose the shft, now wrap tape of bbs around the shaft at end closest to knob and secure w duct tape, install boot and voila now you have shifter w more pos action/crisper shifts,, also have 1900 bbs left to give to son so he can terrorize neighborhood wildlife!! enjoy

Umm, is this like adding Blinker fluid or muffler bearings? If not, I'm totally confused how this would accomplish anything.

I either have an incredibly bad sense of humor, am very dim, or both.

so, your adding weight to the shifter? Is that what you were trying to accomplish?

Sounds like it... Be really bad for that tape to go bad though...Better to use some Weights or something...

Mines weighted, and I honestly don't feel a difference.

I got it, I'm just not prepared to do that uh... "upgrade" at this time.

Someone else might not understand a weighted shifter. I would've done that to my Manx in high school, well actually I just bought the Hurst Shift Knob, so I wouldn't have done that to my $800 Dune buggy... Nevermind.

.....now wrap tape of bbs around the shaft at end closest to knob and secure w duct tape.....

...and then you beg your "mistress" to kick you in the junk while shouting degrading obscenities at you.

LOL, Like my Dildo Shifter and the additional weight does help. You buy a 50K car, step up and buy a weighted shifter. BTW, Wife is pretty happy with mine also! (ribbed for her pleasure and all)

What do you do when the heat attacks the tape and the BB's start rolling out from the bottom of your car? Change the tape when you change the oil?

In all fairness though, got to give you credit for going out and modifying your V. creative.

Hey, Iím all for showing some ingenuity, but I sure wouldnít want to be behind you on the highway when the tape letís go and BBís start dropping under your car. It may not play out that dramatically, but still, there is a riskÖIím sure you could find something a little safer at Home Depot that will create the same effect. Something that you can use a worm clamp with.

I tried to watch it with my 5 year old son last X-Mas, and he didn't really get it. Although he did laugh like hell at the little brother wearing 800 layers of clothes to go outside.

You guys are missing the obvious potential for awesomeness here:

If you were to engage in a high speed car chase with henchmen from an evil organization firing rockets at you, the heat from the nearby explosions would melt the tape, spraying the BBs out behind you. Then the pursuers cars would flip over and smash into strategically placed parked vehicles and explode into a fireball, at which point you could look over your shoulder and smugly say, "No tailgating", then drive to their girlfriends house and have sex with them while drinking a martini.
