Hell i don't know how they work truthfully i just hate shifters in front wheel drive cars. Most of them are cable operated to the transaxles and the bushings or springs wear out real bad and their gating system feels super shitty. So self aligning to the middle like it should.
His own fault for doing that mis shift though, that ones pretty hard.

yeah I thought it probably has something of the sort, k20 swaps are very common on big power honda's these days. I had 4 rsx's though, and there is NO alignment on any part of the shifter mechanism whatsoever. unless they are using something weird/new that I have not heard of.

Some how, a F body managed to get into reverse going down the track a couple of years ago. I missed it, I think I was racing that day but my friends said the thing nearly jumped in the air and the reverse lights flashed. Luckily I have never unintentionally down shifted at redline, but I am pretty sure I would crap my pants.

Way back in the day, I used to ride around in a 20G 1G AWD DSM.

It had a **** trans, would pop out of second, etc.

One night, after a bunch of racing, from the top of third my buddy goes into 2nd instead of 4th, for an instant. I was watching the TMO laptop logger at the time, knock was maxed, and I think (don't remember) we hit ~10-11k rpm for a fraction of a second, only his quick reaction saved the motor.

It was a rather unexpected.

Talk about some excellent traction with the front tires; I'm surprised that it just did not skid. Never seen that before, awesome. I guess the huge weight shift plus possible drag tires did the trick.

Last person I let drive my car felt it would be ok to go to redline in 3rd and mis-shift into 2nd. I almost stabbed him in the neck immediately. Good think our tachs are off. It was an indicated 7k rpm which is really more like 6700 so he hit around 7800 or less in a mechanical over-rev. I still wouldn't mind stabbing him in the neck.

I have grabbed 3rd from redline in 4th twice, in the same place on the same track in the same day. I was pissed at myself.

At my last motorcycle track day I saw 17,000rpm on my R6 for a split seconds as I down shifted a little too much. Was a little worried, but all is well and I have put a bunch of kms on it since.
