there are only 2 available. the one that BDR makes and the one from B&M UK. I say buy the BDR one cause those guys have always been real good to us and make a quality product.

Good lord....where the hell did that come from?? hahaI think you have to call bdr or worst comes to worst get it from fc(shudders).
yeah, I got ya on that part. obviously the distance of the knob has changed. but my understanding of a short throw is that the new pivot point makes the gates feel closer together. My old delorean had a real tight gearbox. real short stick but the gates were so close you just flicked it into gear. now get in the focus and see how damn long that throw is. with or without a chopped stick, its still a long ways.imagine the stock shifter was 2ft longand the pivot point stayed the same, the distance your hand would move would be alot. If you cut down the top of the shifter by one foot leaving the pivot point intact you can see that your hand will move less but the bottom part of the shifter will move the same as before.
I made a picture to ilustrate this but immagestation is giving me grief right now, sorry.
exactly. if you chop the top of the stick, a 45* throw is a 45* throw. regardless of length. If you move the pivot point up, you reduce the 45* top end throw to say 30* (just pulling numbers)the length of the shifter below the pivot point is longer so the leverage is decreased
Yeah, but my point is: Is that really worth $150? That seems a bit...insane, I think that's the word I want.like I said before the combination of moved pivot point and shorter stick you get with an aftermarket shifter will shorten the throw the most. Moving the pivot point up on the shifter is the same thing as shortening the shaft from the top is it not? Only difference is now the length of the shifter below the pivot point is longer so the leverage is decreased even more making the throw even shorter than you can by just cutting the top off, so that would make the gates feel closer.
