Overall I really like it. I was actually a bit concerned that the throws would be too short and/or notchy for my liking, but it really is not the case. The shifts feel nice and crisp, and very short. When paired with the Kartboy shifter bushings it really transforms the feel of the car.

Here are a few photos:
I read your write-up about the comparison of the 3 shifters, very thorough. Did you have any thoughts on how any of those 3 compared to the MODE adjustable shifter, which I believe you had at one point? I'd be interested to know what your take is on MODE vs Kartboy.
