What a load of crap... now I won't have a SS installed...
Actually, I don't think that mine does this anymore. I know that it did it a lot when I first installed it, but now that I've gotten used to it and broken it in, I don't believe it hits the E-Brake anymore. Or maybe I just havn't noticed.
I don't think it does this with all short shifters, perhaps just the TRD
. I believe it's because it has a greater height and throw than other short shifters, but regardless, it's not that big of a deal. It won't damage the brake or shifter.
