props on the GS short shifter

I just installed the new GS short shifter and I have to say its one of the better mods I have done and it feels so nice to have short spacing that feels solid and smooth. Very happy with this new short shifter, its much easier to shift gears and the feel is awesome!!!

Word!!!

(Write letters & shit)....
No kidding now, the GS short shifter really makes the car gear shifting like in a super-sport car.
A loud "BRAVO" for Nick T. (aka "the steel-master").

Thanks!

Lots of work in that part to get it perfect.

I still want to make a kit to fix the linkage slop under the hood. Mine on the vig is a little sloppy (only has 24k) and I am not going to spend the $$ on a new factory one to be in the same boat down the road.

hmm..

my question is, when in gear i have a lot of slop side to side and a little back and forth...is that the linkage slop, or is that something that could be remedied with the shifter?

99 vig, so i should have the newer linkage, and it is certainly not that bad.

I agree... my biggest complaint is the knob wiggle from side to side when in gear.

So does this shirt shifter fix the problem??

The last few posts never said for sure.

there's still knob wiggle with the short shifter, the shifter makes shifting more direct and percise

Glad to hear continued praise! I also look forward to a linkage solution as well. As shifting continues to be the biggest gripe w/ this car. After that comes the floppy chassis.
