    I put Tri-Ax's in both my T-56's, and wish I had actually driven the stock one for a while. I am less than impressed. No real issues per se, but I had a Kirban in the TR-3650 that was in my GT and it was far less notchy than the Tri-Ax. I may have to cough up the cash for an MGW and see what they're all aboot....

    I had a Tri-Ax for about 9 months and replaced it with an MGW in the hope that it would improve the shifting. IMO, it helped a little but not that much. I don't think it was worth it and I wouldn't do it again if I had it to do over.

    I've had the Pro 5.0 for about 6 months and have had no problem with it. Much cleaner shifts than stock and haven't missed 3rd since the install.

    MGW owns. It has definitely helped me at the track.

    Shifters

    I had a hurst shifter for about 7 or 8 months. Had a hard time hitting 3rd, so I just replaced with a Red handle MGW tonight. What a difference it makes in all shifts. I can't see anyone missing a shift with this shifter. I seen that someone said " Its the best mod I've made on my car", I will agree with that. Its the best shifter on the market in my book. :burnout:

    I had a B&M ripper in my old fox-body Stang, it was a good shifter..the 3rd gear spring wasnt the best, but it was quiet.

    I always had a special place for Tri-ax's in my heart, but ever since i first tried a MGW..I was hooked. Way smoother, and quiet compared to Tri-ax..just a plai nall around better shifter.

    MGW BLUE ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:
