Reverse

I've Always wondered how does the gear shifting work if you want to put it into Reverse gear? there has to be a safety measure right what if you think its in gear 1 and it goes reverse into a wall.. haha

You gotta pull up on the shifter boot to shift into reverse.

Have you even seen an FRS?



You pull up on the black piece under the shift knob, then push left and up. The shifter will not move over unless you lift up on that piece (will only go so far as the 1/2 gate)

All 6 Speed gearboxes have a safety feature that prevents you from doing just that.

With some of these threads you would think this is a 'new to cars' forum more than one that supports a sports car.

Hey, if a guy hasn't seen one and never drove a six speed how is he supposed to know.

There's a lock out feature that makes it impossible to accidentally put the car in reverse. You have to pull up on a ring that is below the knob and while holding that ring in the up position only then can you put the car in reverse.

Every manual transmission will have some kind if feature...some have to press down on the stick, some lift a ring, some press a button, and some are just electronic lockouts. If none of those were there it would just grind (unless you did everything in your power to force it in, in which case you deserve that repair bill payment).

For 6 speed manual transmissions (there could be exceptions).
For 5 speed transmissions, some don't have such protection mechanism; and I know (old) cars with 4 speed transmissions, on which the reverse is where the 5th would be (no protection, either).

The fun part is switching between driving my 6 speed and 5 speed cars. The Miata's 5 speed is geared so you're at 4k rpm on the highway - so if you forget which car you're in, there's that natural inclination to shift into 6th - well, except that's exactly where Reverse gear is on the Miata!

Every car I've ever driven had it. '84 camaro 4 speed, you had to physically push DOWN on the shifter from center neutral, then right and down (same as 6th gear position would be) to get reverse. '00 Neon has a lockout that prevents you from going into R from 5, if you pull straight back it deflects it into 4th. You have to let it settle into neutral before it'll go to R
