Lou's Short Stick Shifter?
In the latest issue of HPP there is a pretty interesting write-up of a new shifter stick that replaces the stock shifter stick without having to change the entire shifter mechanism. Only drawback is the factory shift knob won't work with it, you have to use an aftermarket knob like a Hurst shift ball. Lou Salzano of LS Concepts claims his Lou's Short Stick (LSS) shifter stick is a little over 1 1/2 inches shorter than the factory stick, it's curved slightly toward the driver's side for short, precise throws, eliminates the spongy feeling of the stock shifter, and reduces overall shifter throws by just over 20%. He sells them for $50. I thought it sounded pretty cool, and the installation is nowhere near as difficult as what I've read about the GMM ripshifter. They claim you can install the stick and ball for $80 in less than 30 minutes. Anybody here tried one of these or know anyone who has?
