Tri-ax shifters or short throw shifters.

One mod I am considering is a Tri-ax Shifter. I drove my neighbors 2000 GT last Sunday which has a Tri-ax. Nice GT, I liked the short throw shifter, although after shifting with a stock, it took be few tries to get the feel for it, along with his 3.73 gears.
Something I never realized, with a short throw shifter, you have to reach further for the shifter. I was pulling myself up out of the seat to shift. But then again as I’m typing this, I noted he had his seat more reclined than I would have mine. I only moved the seat back but I didn’t adjust the back. I don’t consider myself really tall, 6’1. Is their any one here of my height or higher that’s using a short through shifter, and if you are, are you having to pull your self out of the seat to shift? Or was it just the reclined position of his seat that was making me reach?

With the Tri-Ax on the lowest setting I had a hard time reaching 3rd and 5th. I'm 6'1" and all my height is in my legs.
I then installed the MGW shifter arm on the tri-ax in the lowest setting and now have no problems reaching. It's beautiful! All gears fall into hand nicely. Not much room for big drinks in the front cupholder...but then again if it were my choice I would never install cupholders in a sportscar anyway :smile: !
My wife hears this line a lot...
