I got my Hurst T handle today-- and I have to say that I'm disappointed.

I can expect some manufacturing flaws, but I could have hammered this out of a chunk of aluminum and attacked it with a grinder.

This is supposed to be brushed... but the grit they used on it was pretty course. The relief for HURST is so poorly cast, the U and R are ground to point the hole in the R is a tiny slit.

"They" is Hurst, Mr Gasket and the people in Taiwan who made this thing.

I hope Hurst's other products are better than this.

Parts being made today just don't seem to have the quality and attention to detail,they once did. This is due entirely to all of the factory mergers and off shore manufacturing going on. There are very few hard part USA manufactuers left today. You would think with all this CNC machining capability there is today,products would be better built and cheaper in price,not quality. It is like this in all levels of the aftermarket. I have a friend who installed a brand new high dollar high performance MOPAR water pump,on his freshly built new HEMI. The engine fried itself,due to the pump impeller not being attached to the shaft!!!
