Question Focus Central STS

Does anyone have the Focus Central Race Shifter? I am debating if I should get it or the Steeda. Any feedback would be great.

The focus central is alot shorter, looks really cool, but if your tall or ride with the seat up (not foward, up!) all the way, you might have a hard time shifting. Both quality STS. Check out WD's write up on the install!

My car has the steeda and a good friend of mine has the FC on her SVT...I've driven both cars a lot and really, there's no difference in the two (that I can feel) except for the height. The steeda is about an inch and a half shorter than stock and the FC is at least 3 inches shorter, I'd say. I'm happy with my steeda and prefer it, but I don't mind driving my friends car, either...

My friend has the FC Race Shifter and at the last autox I rode with him and honestly couldn't tell he even shifted to the next gear, besides the tone of the exhaust. it shifts so quick that I seriously couldn't tell.

SUPER2NERSVT,
There are only two I know of for the SVT...
The Steeda/ Ford Racing: www.steedafocus.com / www.c-f-m.com
or
The Focus Central Race shifter: www.focus-central.com


I am still not sure which one I want to get.... I like the idea that the FC Race shifter is shorter and so am I at 55... but the Steeda is what I hear more about = good reputation.

it all depends on if you prefer shorter or longer stick...oh man that sounds gay. but uh yea...both are quality piece. the shorter stick does look better though. the fc shifter is a little more expensive also.
