Shaking Gear Shifter

Alright so it's been snowing like crazy out here in PA. So the other day I decided i'd go ahead and enjoy myself while everyone suffers and can't make it down the street. I made it to an empty parking lot that hadn't been plowed. The obvious thing to do is do some f***ing donuts. As i'm having fun in the snow i notice that my gear shifter is shaking and going crazy. I don't know what was going on but everytime i'd be mid drift the shifter would start shaking again. As soon as I stopped moving it'd stop. So then I decided this can't be good and I made my way home. But as I made my way through the foot high snow just going straight the lever began shaking like crazy. Has this every happened to anyone before? I googled this and found nothing online. If this has ever happened to you guys please tell me and tell me if there's a solution because I really wanna do some more donuts without being scared my transmissions gonna explode or something.

Does the shift lever swing left/right as you apply/let-off gas to the engine?

When you have a choice, buy American.

Sounds like you may have packed some snow into the area above your skid plate and around your trans.

If you come to a fork in the road take it.
