I have never driven a car with a short throw shifter. My Mustang (as far as I know) still has the stock shifter. I have been thinking about shifter/shifter handle combinations. Last night, I put a Hurst T-handle on my stock shifter and I was amazed at the difference in feel. To me, that little change made shifting feel much more like I think a muscle car should feel. Shifts now feel much more solid and purposeful, and missing a gear, while not really a problem for me even with the stock knob, seems even less likely. That made me start considering short-throw kits.
My car is a daily driver and I am not very much into speed competitions. I really enjoy driving on curvy backroads where I get to downshift a lot, etc. more than driving full-out at top end. Therefore, I am looking for a shifter kit that would simply make shifting more 'fun', more than anything else. Should I even consider a shifter kit? What are my best options for a good price, considering it is for a daily driver, not a racer? About the only ones I have heard of are Herst, Steeda Tri-ax and Roush. The Roush shifter kit looks good, but is probably more money than I need to spend for this particular application. I know Hurst has been around making muscle-car products for awhile, and I imagine that would be the most readily available kit? The Steeda is the one I hear the most about, but again, I imagine I might be able to suit my needs with a good quality product for less money than a Steeda would cost. Advice is, as always, appreciated.
