I have a FC short shifter with black knob. I don't know how much the shifter shorter than the stock but you can really feel the different. I like it a lot.[thumb]

I have not gotten one yet. Have you installed yours yet? I mean because then you could just compare the length while you have them out together.

Sciron, I've got the same for my 03 ZX3. It's a race shifter and yes it is a few inches shorter then stock and now it's much more fun to drive it!

Well, not much that I seen. The FC short throw shifter has reverse lockout and different colored knobs to choose from and the race shifter has just a silver knob and no reverse lockout function.

also, apparently, the '02+ foci have a shorter throw than the 00-02 models, so when FC made the shifter for the '02+, they really didn't have to shorten anything but the rod length. hence, "race shifter" instead of "short shifter".
