Well guys I drove up to steeda's shop in valdosta and had the first shifter installed, all I can say is if you have seen steedas shifters in the past you will not be disapointed in the build quality. Now I cannot post any pictures of the shifter yet since it has not been released but you guys will enjoy it when it does come out.


Also I got to see what we have to look forward to over the next few months that steeda has planned,all i have to say is start saving your penny's! LOL

If what Steeda has in store for the 12' resembles anything like the specs and picture look like for the SEMA release that recently came out, I can't wait. I wanna take my SEL and do a full Steeda conversion, that package was very nice!

Yahoo!!! Thanks for the info, I had a Steeda short throw in my 2007 ST. Recently installed their new rear sway bar, and their short throw is another planned upgrade for my '12 Fofo.

^ that package was rims & paint. I don't see any actual parts on it.
Maybe not on this site, but there was a write up with a list of parts they planned on releasing for the car at the SEMA show from the shifter, body kit, intake, springs and suspension, sway bars, wheels, Brakes, Exhaust, etc.....

Jack, does the ESC seem to intervene? More rear roll stiffness would give it either more neutral cornering, or a 'wee bit of tail-happy action. If you drop the throttle when cornering, does it tighten up the line nicely?

Do you have any sense that ESC action is occurring?

thx

How are you liking Steedas' short throw so far? These 2012 manuals shift real well, does their short shifter feel worth the moolah?

They lied to me, I asked the reps at sema when the aftermarket parts were gonna be available and they enthusiastically said "today!"
That was almost a month ago....

I think a short shifter would be great on this car. It's a nice clutch and shifter overall, but the throw is a bit long. It would be great to shorten it a bit. Any idea on the price?
