    just wondering if any of y’all on the fourm are running one. I just discovered that there is an outfit that is making an updated version of these and seriously considering purchasing one.

    I’ve been doing a bunch of research on these and they aren’t as bad as you would think, you can drive it like normal with the far left stick (PRND21) or jam that bad boy all the way down for full “race mode”

    What vehicle(s) do you drive?:

    Is there an advantage to the multi stick mode?

    No missed shifts (if you grab the right stick lol) depending on the model of them closet to driver is 1-2 next 2-3 next 3-N or 4. They pull back to shift. Some models have two extra sticks some have three

    They also work in reverse to downshift or engine brake.

    Another pro/con is they can be driven normally (the ladyfriend could theoretically drive it)

    Much more streamlined than my choice, and the price ain’t too bad for a gated shifter that’s USA made, round the same price as some of the lightning shifters above. Also probably makes for a more “sleeper” look lol

    winters shifter is a pretty well known brand that makes good shifters. I’ve never seen a mod like the tap shift before on an aftermarket shifter. That’s pretty nice!
