Steeda's new STS! i think i might be the first person on here to get it! seriously well worth the wait. Overall MUCH shorter shifts, much shorter stick, everything fit perfect and install was not bad. Overall i noticed the stick is shorter, but HEAVIER than stock, also makes both side to side and front to back shifting much smaller. Instructions included were spot on and its been shifting great! buy this STS! Here are a few pics. (Terrible quality, i'll update tomorrow with better pics if there is interest in them)

oh yea. Drives tons better than i expected to tell you the truth. so smooth its insane. and it keeps the side to side play to nothing whatsoever. everything seems so much tighter and more precise

Sweet. Just be careful at high speeds and shifting. A mechanical over-rev from a wrong shift is not your friend and is much easier to do the shorter the throw. lol

why? so you can do 140 in a football stadium parking lot but screw up hitting the NOZ button with the wrong finger and spinning out, but its ok because your overlooking LA...?

lol j/k

you set that one up for me.

I like that it gets rid of the plastic at the base and is all metal.

oh yea your right. i think thats why theres no side to side play while in gear and it feels more stern going into gear. Doesnt feel cheap at all thats for sure

Wodan I started a thread with the Steeda STS in the title, I';m gonna throw in some pics tomorrow and a how to [using mostly the instructions that came with it, as they were indeed spot on]. Your input would be very welcome, and share any good pics too :)

EDIT: Thread was moved, to interior mods and upgrades. Not entirely sure why, as it's a DURATEC STS, but thats where everyone can find it.

EDITEDIT: This one was moved too, so uhhh...nevermind? :D
