i actually just heard of a person that got fractures in both thumbs cuz he wrapped his fingers around the wheel when he was racing. But this was in a USTCC car not a street car. but breaking pinkies while shifting never heard of it.

I snapped one, but that was when the helper springs broke on my clutch and it wouldn't change grears. I had an eBay shifter and it snapped for me pulling and pushing on it. I have a B&M now and like it a lot more. It just feels better.

thanks for the input i never expected my shifter to break while i was driving. it just snapped on me when i was going down the road also it was pretty hot to the touch which is why i think it broke in the first place but at the time i was freaking out like wtf did i just do :fear !!!
