Default Perrin adjustable Short Shifter

Has anyone used the perrin adjustable short shifter that retains the stock shaft? How do you like it? How was the install?

Default perrin short throw

It was great. Also, having the ability to adjust almost infinately the amount of throw and resistance is a nice feature.

Installed mine in about 30 minutes, easy to go in and easy to adjust. Hardest part was to figure how short I want the thorw to be.

I had one and did not care for it. It could be because I was still using the stock bushings, but I thought it was a bit sloppy. I did have to modify the metal plate that goes around where the linkage goes through the floor but that was no big deal.
Over about 6 months with it I also had to adjust it more frequently because the vibration would rattle the collar down a bit, causing the shifter to twist and not feel right.

I bought it new, for like 110. Sold it for 50 and bought KB with bushings. Havent thought about it again.

Hope that helps. Good luck.

Mine seems to rotate just a little bit...it's cheaper than a "real" adjustable, or even a regular Kartboy shifter, and it kinda shows.
