No he did not, and the reason was that he liked the shifter enough to keep it and make modifications to it himself, then start a thread about how bad the piece was (that he decided to keep) His thread should only have been started had he asked for a full refund to return the product but been denied. A better course of action would have been to share his findings and corrections (which has some merit BTW) directly with the company first. Now to make matters worse he's hijacking a new thread to start it all over again. Why did he keep the shifter if it was that bad?
It's pretty simple. I like the idea of the shifter and as I explained before and you can see in my thread, it does not need much effort to make it way better. Further shipping to the US from Switzerland, receiving a new one (with even taxes once more) is expensive and it would be better in what point? Engineering would be the same. I don't wanted to wait until they maybe make an improved version which reflects the price, so I took this as a prototype for making my version. BTW, what I made was only to solve the biggest issues, not the final goal.

Minor or major, well looking at the product itself you can say minor, as function in general is not affected that much, at least for a certain time, but looking at the price I tend to say impertinent

930 Turbo '81 Too many modifications to list
