Short Shifter

Is a short shift worth getting? And if so where do you suggest getting one? I have heard they are fun to drive with a short shift in them and was wondering if it would be worth my money to buy one and have in it. Any info is greatly appreciated. THanks

Here's one that bd makes, and honestly I cant justify spending 250 on it but I think it would be fun to drive with and a hole lot easier when pulling a trailer.

Yeah, that has been part of the reason I haven't gotten one, didn't know if it was worth the money or not.

Shortshifter aka short throwshifters work really well in other applications. I would use one for sure if I had a Stick. It just makes it easier and quicker to row gears and I bet it would take a good amount off of your 1/4 time too.

I've seen a bunch of them but I can't see $200 buck just to shorten the shift...

Hell I beat everything here locally as it stands... (Pulling or Speed)
