|PoonRacing||stock shifter are fine for me, but short-throw are sweet. I wonder how many company beside Ford Racing will made short-throw kit for the ST?|

I am actually pretty happy with the shifter. I do think the knob could use improvement, although the stock knob is only second in feel to my MINI coopers, Which I replaced with a whalen shift machine.
For now, I made my own 2" Ball style knob out of teflon, which is nice, but it really needs something more substantial with weight like AL, SS or TI. I'd make my own but I would spend more on bar stock and drill bits than 3 knobs. I drilled the tapped hole as deep as I could and it lowered the knob about another 1/2" .
Hint, Hint, wheres the aftermarket knobs?

I like the stock shifter on my ST2 a lot. I don't think the throw is very long either. It was for sure a hell of a lot shorter than my 2000 SE and from what I can remember as well its shorter than my 2003 ZX3 was as well.

|tjaz420||how do you like the clutch feel? do you find it soft?|

|rgonyer||The stock throw is actually not bad (I'd like it a little shorter but that's personal preference) - it's the lack of a positive stop when you get into gear that I don't like. It's not bad, don't get me wrong. I just loved the postive stop feel of the adjustable shifter I had in my SVT Focus.|

Ford Racing is making one. They're still figuring out the pricing though.
