Indeed no surprise.

I just hope that when they say two days delay they mean two days delay.

I just got a call from Steeda 0730 PST to let me know my shifter was on it's way. He ask me to let everyone know that there are four units available right now, so I'm passing it along. Good News!

Yeah the MS3 RMM is also definitely on the to-do list.

I meant to ask, they claim good shifter feel, but does it still maintain the solid, positive engagement of the stock shifter? A lot of short shifters I've driven have just felt too "off" (even the name brand stuff).

I'm always skeptical to a degree when people tell me they like a short-shifter because I know how picky I am haha! However, I only hear glowing reviews of the Steeda units so I'd be willing to give it a shot.

My only problem is that the code is expired so I guess no discount for me!

if anything it only enhances the engagement feeling overstock, you know when it goes into gear. And I have now fear of missing any gear with it at all.

Ah, now I think I remember you posting something like that before.

Good to know. For the price it's nice to see it seems like you get your money's worth.

Would be nice if that coupon lasted another day... (cough) SteedaBrandon (cough)
