    Re: Paragon won't go into reverse.

    The velvet drive does it too :/
    It'd be nice if I didn't make any headway when in neutral. It's slowest speed now is 5 knots.. put one in neutral and I can do 4 knots, but still moves forward with...

    Re: Paragon won't go into reverse.

    Re: Paragon won't go into reverse.
