I find it hard to believe that the boot gets soo cold that it forces the shifter into neutral, just from my experience when driving in 2wd on the sand dunes my shifter has not poped out once. I would think that there is much more force being applied on the shifter to pop out while going 60mph on a extremely bumpy sand and when jumping then there would be with a cold boot. Then again, my shifter boot has just about completely undone itself from the console so it must be stretching the boot pretty bad in some positions.
Regardless of the reason, all my other cars were sticks and I never once had a problem with poping, the WRX was near impossible to get out of gear without the clutch FULLY pressed in.
