My backup plan to the backup plan would be to live without a dedicated track and autocross vehicle if the BRZ were toast.

Never owning a FWD vehicle again...

No such thing. "We can rebuild him. We have the technology..."

replace - rebuild - improve - enjoy

If you are lucky it is a detent ball from the shifter mechanism. You may not notice, if the spring gets caught it will be hard to shift for a while. Good you had the magnet there. If one ball can get out of a bearing others usually follow.

No worries. The less frs/BRZ/86's are on the road the better.

The only way FWD is ok is if the rear drives also.
