I really love your threads and this is a great comparison test.
You let me know when you want to sell that STI shifter
I have no interest in lowering the lever, but a shorter throw would be nice. I already have a Lathewerks ball which lowered the shift knob position by over an inch. I contacted Lathewerks and they sent me an externally threaded hex nut that goes inside the knob so that I could bring the knob position up about 1/2". The height is perfect now. The Kartboy would be too low. I hate shifters that I have to reach for. I can leave my elbow on the adjustable armrest and literally shift with my wrist.
Yeah, yeah. My whole post sounds a bit sexual.
