Well we learned that we could get automatics and everything will work, but then I won't know what to do with my left foot.

Did we never learn anything in all of those years??
I agree. It seems as if manufacturers have forgotten how to make a smooth shifting transmission. The newer cars are getting worse rather than better.

Anyone heard of or tried this "Anti-Venom" mod? Essentially, you are shimming out the shift detent bolt to make the detent spring softer, which translates to smoother shifting. It originated from a mod for the T56, but seems to show promise for the TR6060 as well. It's very popular with the Vettes and Challengers. Here it is on the Vette forum:

I read about the detent mod but could not find the bolt on the tremec. I even had the car on a lift and could not find it.

It's there. Way up top on the passenger side in front of the shifter. It threads in horizontally.
