Hey there,

Why buy used when you can buy a good quality, Canadian product. A fellow named Tibor on the Toronto Forums makes a really swank looking machined one. I have one and it is really nice. The centre piece is machined aluminum. The other pieces are steel (the ball and the thread end) and are pressed into the aluminum centre piece. He sells them for $100 CDN (that's right, not US, Canadian). If I get any time to show up to a meet, I'll let you guys see it. It is very cool, and very unique looking.

You can PM him. His screen name is "Apro1"

He also made me an underdrive pulley for $150 CDN. I drove to Oregon and back with no problems. That was about 1200 Kilometres right there.

I've never , used the Kartboy, so I can't really compare it. I know that the shifter is a lot shorter, making my ugly rubber boot look all funny, and it defitely has this nice notchy feel when going from gear to gear. The throw, I would estimate, is HALF what it was before. Overall, my shifts have been a lot cleaner and smoother as of late, thanks to this little gizmo. I think it was money well spend. A good bang for the buck item.
