Is it possible to use a slower flash sync on my GT-E?

There's a micro switch in the hot shoe of the GT-E. When it's pressed, the speed goes to 1/125.

What I've done, is to take an old flash I had lying around, and used an x-acto knife to carve away some plastic from shoe of the flash. I took the shape of the hot shoe cover of the GT-E as an example.

I did a small test that confirmed that the GT-E indeed strobes the flash at speeds lower than 1/125.
