    Default I've got a slack box.........

    ........ Well more to the point there's loads of slack in my gear stick mechanism. Anyone out there got the same problem? If you look at THIS vid you can see there's plenty of slack on the ball and socket. Anyone know if there's an adjustment underneath the ball?

    Cheers
