    Sorry, but you are wrong on the guess the gears contest. The Mitsubishi has 2 reverse gears. The total gears is 25.

      William, after further review, you are indeed correct about the Twin-Stick. Thank you for keeping us honest! Unfortunately, we confirmed your official contest answer was 22 and no one else answered 25. While we can’t award you a second prize, please feel free to send us your T-Shirt size and mailing address to and we will send you some free merch as a “Thank You!”

        I know my answer was 22. I hit enter and then realized my error. Not the end of the world. But I knew a gal who had a Colt so I knew it had 2 reverses. Neat idea. Not sure it really improved anything.
