    Opinion on short throw shifter

    Okay, So I just got about 200 bucks for my b'day and decided I'm going to put it towards a short throw shifter. I'm looking at the B&M Rip shift, but was curious about the pro 5.0 (my friend has one on his stang) and lou's short stick.

    Is the B&M the way to go? Opinions and facts are appreciated.

    imo, unlike the popular thoughts, i like my b&m better than the 5.0, much smoother

    Yeah. I ended up getting the B&M and also really enjoy it right now. It did come with two sets of washers "A" and "B".

    Did you put in the "A"s for stock position or angle it back some with the "B"s?

    I like my pro 5.0 with the LSS.

    That's pretty nice. I know that the B&M was shorter than 5.0, but I can't tell if LSS made took it down below the B&M place or if it's my cueball shift nob. Either way, that looks great.

    I think either way you go, any m6 driver will be extremely happy over the stock shifter, which I know realize was WEAK.
