GT sez:

"As far as the wevo goes, would its precision allow me to bang gears a little safer? I dont abuse my box that bad now (that didnt sound right...) but I will be drag racing it on occasion and I notice that the slop in the shifter seems bad enough that it could be causing damage to the syncros- is this accurate?"
Yipes. The WEVO engages the gears quicker per inch of 'stroke' - so yes you will be banging if you choose. And if you choose that, you will be chewing through dog teeth and synchros too.

WEVO allows more accuracy and a much higher level of safety - just don't romp into the next gear, as the *gears will be engaging just like they used to - more than likely even quicker* if you don't realize what function you just changed - ie quicker engagement per unit of 'stroke'

Porsches boxes don't like to be excessively rushed.
