That doesn't sound pleasant! Haven't had the same issue really, but I primarily track at Buttonwillow, so I can't compare notes on Laguna T11.
The gates are a lot closer together in my GT4, particularly side to side. So sometimes when getting into the Elise after a long hiatus, I have to re acclimate to how far left and right the stick must be moved. That's about the only time I've been blocked out of a gear.
I did mounts, shifter base mod, and upgraded shifter cables. Don't think I'll go for an aftermarket shifter base / assembly, but would like to try one.
