Default Short shifter question

Is the short shifter for the RS 2.5 something that would be good for autocrossing, or is it mostly for rally driving? Also is it good for street driving as well compared to the stock shifter? I have read that it is very notchy, but that seems OK as long as it makes the job of reaching the next gear quicker. I like the idea of it, but wanted some comments from a few who have used it before I spent the bucks.

Any advice would be welcome.

IMO a shortshifter is great for any type of driving. It's nice to just flick the wrist and get to your next gear; no rowing a boat here As a side note (may not apply to you) a short shifter will bump you out of stock class (if that's where you're at).

Well, I seriously doubt it'll decrease your lap times noticably. However it just feels better. Get one, get the bushings. You'll like it.

I got a kartboy (www.kartboy.com) short shifter a few months after I got my 01 RS coupe. I really liked the feel of it. All sport compact cars should really feel this way.

Kartboy makes a great product at a great price.

On Friday, I drove my friends RS that has the stock shifter and could not believe how far the throws were.

Regards,
Stacey
