Thumbs up Kartboy Short Shifter

I know that this has been posted many times, but I still wanted to say that I got mine from Dale Teague yesterday and it is Awesome!!! Kartboy, this is one great peice you have made for us. The shift throw is way shorter than I thought it was going to be, and on top of that, the feel of the stick is better than stock, engagement seems more positive. One of the first mods to do to your car. If you haven't got one, do it now.

If it were my call, I'd work on a supercharger project.

But in all honesty, anything that could drag out a little more power from an auto would be nice...since that's what I'm looking to do...

Cheers.

how about a build up kit for a 4eat, or even just a shift kit for an auto. I mean, not that it needs it, but anybit on my auto would help. (wishing i had a manual right now ) Ohh well, anything for an auto would be GREAT!

Actually the difference shift kits make is freakin' amazing! On my bro's old cop car, w/o shift kit, slow and mushy unpredictable shifting, after kit, the thing would chirp the tires when shifting! (That turned a coupla heads) But it also lets you run the trannie harder w/out worrying about the worry of the "d'oh, my transmission shifted mushy and that's why i was slower than you"

Question

Okay, so I really want one... but what about the reliability thing?? I've heard nothing but bad stories about short shifters messing up synchros/transmissions/the whole nine yards.

I'm sure they make a great improvement in feel, but....

Question

Hey Tom,

How about some nice hard rubber splash/mud guards. Graham Goode (sp?) is the only one selling them and they are really expensive.

Well I sat in Fishguy's car last night and checked out his Kartboy, yes indeed... that sucker feels nice!! Reminds me of a Miata.

Maybe not THAT short... though I don't know.
Regardless, it felt great...

The thing I LIKE is that it feels good, and it's inexpensive. I guess I'm still wary though...
