Does sombody have allready a solution for this ? Thanks

Hi Peter -

i have one. It is made from an aluminum hinge, and when flipped down, it blocks off the reverse gate. 

It mounts under the shifter gate.

when I return from my trip, I will post a picture for you.

Well heck, my velocity stack screens are stainless drain strainers from Walmart @ $1.99 each! Why not door hinges from Home Depot for a reverse lock out? It could be a brilliant solution? When can we see this? Inquiring minds need to know!

Hi Doug & Peter -

I’m up here in Lang-EYE-Lund, but I guess I’m too early to see the 4th of July Sayville Ferry ride and Drag Race to Fire Island....

Hope to have pix up for you tomorrow. 

You’ll be impressed.

It's lung-eye-lANd. What's a matta' 4 u? The 4th has already started. Last 4 nights right a 9. Sometimes at 2 or 3 am.

I'm prepared though. I've got my "equipment" prepared with lots of response capability. Night scopes are tuned. Many of these little dicks are gonna' get taken out before we get there. Ah for the smell of napom in the morning!

Here Peter - a couple pictures of the W-Wadeco Shifter reverse blockout plate assembly.

It is cleverly designed so that it is a slip fit under the shifter gate plate and is retained by the 4 allen heads (friction / compression interface).

It is a reverse "block" (you can't accidentally hit reverse going from first to second), AND it will allow you to put the car in Reverse, and then lock the shifter in that gear, so it doesn't pop out of gear and start rolling around.

It can also be quickly and easily removed for those "Concourse" events, and then installed for racing (I am using it in the first picture).

To make it, you need an aluminum hinge, a sheet metal bending brake, and a little fabrication and hand hammering for the custom curved "thumb tab".
