There has to be a way to lock out the remote start when in gear. Step one would be to see if the E-Brake is engaged, second somehow see if it is in neutral. I own an auto, but someone familiar with the electrical on a manual should be able to find something to tap into for the safety. After that it is just a couple of line breaks to a normal remote start.
