Hi

My next mod will be a short shifter.
I really like the new hurst design but there is conflicting info on the web. Some say it has 27% reduction. Some say it's 40% so im not sure what is the truth?!
Barton seems to be a good alternative too.

Which one would you prefer? Should I wait for the hurst to be finally released?
Thanks!

I like my 40% barton and it has Reverse lock out last i read on the Hurst it did not have this lil (shifting for dummies (that's me)) safety feature. To keep you from going to Reverse instead of 1st. but maybe i am wrong. I don't recall it the Hurst a wee bit taller than stock too ? if so i think that might be a plus.But that's just me and i do like my Barton Shifter and Barton rear shifter mount. your results may vary :) :yelwacko:

I've been very happy with my Barton shifter. I also bought the heavy duty mounting bracket. I almost like what I picked up there more than the reduced throw.

I bought both the shifter and the bracket for my 2011 GT.
I put the bracket on first and it made a huge different using the stock shifter. So much, I sold the Barton shifter and use the stock one now.
Try the bracket first and you may not want to go to a short throw shifter.
