    I have an 88 hatch that I am racing at an oval dirt track. The problem is I need to be in 1st gear all the time and the shifter will only let me shift down to second, also when I put it in drive as soon as I get over 28mph it wont let it shift down even if its floored. I am getting killed out there, is there a way to manually force it into first?
