    Has anyone tried one of those tall short shifters in their daily? hardmotorsport irpgermany

    I have seen these short shifters that look pretty interesting and I was wondering if anyone has tried one in their daily? They are pretty expensive but I can see the advantage of the position for motorsport driving. Just wondering how its like when using it everyday...

    ha, yep... i do!

    i've got the RTD 300mm 'mini' non-reverse lockout shifter, which accepts a factory shift knob. it is, in my opinion, the best option for a street car as you don't have to hack up the console like with the CAE/samsonas/etc shifters. it's not obnoxiously tall, either. i should try to get a little video together of it in action.

    it is stiff to change gears when you're putting around town, but when you're actually driving it - it's a beautiful thing.

    on top of all of that... their customer service is spectacular (small company) and it's priced at about half of the CAE.

    That actually looks really cool. I don't know if I would install one in my car, but I would love to drive it and find out.
