    Ripper Shifter/Pro 5.0/or Just Do A Short Stick?

    Bascially as the title says, I am curios on what you guys would say is the best deal to do on a rarely driven Trans Am. From the reading, both the Lu's Short Stick, and then like the SLP Short Throw Shifter/B&M say they will reduce throw by usually 40% and eliminate the second to third misses. So which is the better choice, seeing as the short stick is far cheaper?

    ive got that factory hurst short shift...i took a piece of bar stock had some threads milled made a spacer to bring it to the correct placement and was done...cost me like $30...it started out great...now i want to cut it down some more..still too tall....not many people like driving my car now though they say the shifts are too hard and too short....the way mine is set up its actually easier to miss a gear now then ever because the throw is non existent...my stick is only about 3.5 inches long...(above the top of the actual shifter....so its like 5" total)
