Atomic 4 Reverse Noobie


Does reverse "snap in" or do you have to hold the gearshift lever down the whole time you want Reverse thrust?

You have to hold the reverse to engage. Forwards will "snap in", but no reverse.

I asked this same question. Wasn't until I replaced a rotten shift cable that reverse would stay in gear without holding the shift lever. NO does not lock ino reverse.

My reverse doesn't snap in like forward, but it holds itself nicely enough.
