Default column locks,hot weather

I dont want to sound like chicken little here, BUT, we just had the 4th 6 spd car towed in with a locked column, the hot weather seems to bring out the worst in the locks, THE RECALL IS NOT ABOUT FIXING THE PROBLEM! I know this topic has been beat to death but getting a by pass from corvettes of houston is now what i consider a "must do" for 6 speed cars

After spending 3 days reading posts last year about column locking I pu ton Thunder Racings Column Lock Simulator before I even had 500 miles on my '04.

I was not going to be going to hear "I told you so"!
