Rocket, it feels Exactly the same in my car!! 2 days of driving and still the same. The gear really went better with the counter weight

Oh well! Back to counter weight I guess

Just finally removed my counter-weight, scratched the crap out of my hand trying to get that bolt out! Haha...

It makes a difference but I guess I don't feel the same way as all you guys saying "wow this is the best thing ever!!!" It's a little lighter, definitely notchy. I'll leave it off for now and see how it is with the STS once I get that on...

On a seemingly unrelated note, when I reinstalled the air box I had a heck of a time getting the snorkel to connect back to the box, but I did, and now I have a pretty cool noise when I get up to higher rpms...it's like...not a whistle but a machine-y whirring sound? I don't know but I like it ...must not have had the snorkel hooked up properly before!

to the members that have recently done it and not impressed. you should drill the weight off and see how you like it. it is the best of both worlds

But then if you don't like that you can't really put it back on very easily!

I Did Mine The Other Day And I Like It. Much Lighter!

Buuuuuuuuttt, 2nd Gear Is Still A Little Funny. When I Drive Easy, The Shift From 1st To 2nd Is Fine. But When I Get On It In 1st And Shift Into 2nd Its Like The Shifter Does Not Want To Stay In Gear.
