I have a post in here somewhere from when I removed the counter weight. I hated the feel, I thought it felt like crap. Took it for about a 15 minute drive, and put it right back on. I thought it felt so much smoother and went into gear nicer with it on.
We all have different opinions on it though, mine was bad, other people I know liked it.
I gotta admit though, my buddy Brians car (HTPerformance), he had the counter weight removed, a very short shifter, and a RX8 shift knob, and I thought it was the nicest shift feeling I ever felt. Weird.
