As a lot of you know there is a counter weight on the trans linkage. A lot of people have removed this for better shifting feel.
I removed mine about a week ago but was disappointed in how it made the tranny feel. It made the shifter much to notchy.
So I'm going to be doing a test hopefully tonight after work. I figure if the counter weight makes the shifter feel to mushy and no counter weight is to notchy in the middle should be juuuust right.
So I took the counter weight and drilled the center of it out where it attaches to the arm to remove it (off the car obviously).
Weighed the slug= 210 grams
Took a 3/8 bolt about 1.5" long and started adding washers till I got to 105 grams.
I'll put it on tonight and see if it is a happy medium.
BTW removing the counter weight can be done fairly easy.
