Stiff gear stick when moved left and right?

Hi

Since I've owned my car I knew the spring to keep the gear stick centered in neutral is broken. I've taken the spring off completely now.

The problem is that the gear stick feels abnormally stiff to move left and right when in neutral.

Any one know why that could be?

I haven't bothered replacing the spring because that'll probably make it harder haha.

Haha yeah that was crazy! Although I may be trying it to some parts of my car in the future ;).

Quick question for you, pro, you know the square jap number plate you have for the rear, is that legal? Because I know there are some weird laws with the size of the plate but see many people have them. You haven't been stopped have ya?

12x6 is technically not legal but I have never been stopped for having it I think it's because it's in a proper surround tho bud... I always run a legal size on the front :)
