But, if I can't, I'm either going to look into just dealing with it or possibly replacing them to pretty Pedders red (but was trying for blue to again, continue with the "theme" of the car). Totally cool, though.

Well you know - if you want a red set, and I just want a set. I'm sure we could come to some kind of arrangement

Make it a blue set and we'll see what we can do.

Dang....I guess I still haven't take pix... It's dusty right now, but...

And I sold my SLP wheels Sat am. Yay. One less thing to have to deal with. Putting that money to a new "house mod" tomorrow....called a sprinkler system. Eight years later and I finally pull the trigger on that one. Then again, it's freaking three grand for a sprinkler system....(which could have easily been a blower... :( )

Stance is awesome. The rears are as aggressive as you could go and will still tuck if needed. The black is just sinister.

One thing I've found....I have a lot more traction than before. Rears don't kick out as much and boy do they hook.

Love the stance too. I had a guy asking me on Saturday how the heck I got them to fit in there w/out rubbing...lol. If you saw the pix of the rears tucked in....holy shenanigins...

I understand on both points. I loved the old wheels too. But the fact that they were stock sizes...and I couldn't get wider ones really sucked. I REALLY like the new look, though. Might just leave them as is. But Dana wants me to paint the rims...inside lip...blue or silver.

Yep...it's got a lot more traction now...straight and curves. I took all the crap out of the car the other day and took it around the turnarounds. Hooked like it never has before. Pretty sweet. Can't wait to take it out on to the track.

From my DIT Hurst thread

I found some other guys selling these on the forums....read it, caught up a bit, found a vendor picked up selling for the member...aaaaaand, the vendor has been out of the brass bushings for a while. What to do, what to do.........


So I'm tooling around on the forum and what do I find? I find someone who has a few extra sets since he was in the exact same boat as me. Original maker of the bushings hadn't put any out and he was waiting like me.

So cool. He had'em....and I bought a set today. I went over to Blackjack, put my Camaro up on the lift, finally got those two damn allen screws that hold the shifter out, dropped the shifter and installed the brass bushings.

I can't EVEN begin to explain how much of a difference this little mod made. Ho-lee-crap. There IS no play anymore with the shifter while in gear. This is, IMO, the type of bushings that should have been installed in the first place. Yes...there is a potential for a tiny bit more vibration or sound, but that's dealt with by that sticky tar like black stuff that that you wrap around the shifter base and under the car.

Pretty incredible how this little mod was so easy and how much of a difference it made. Shifter feels like a total brand new shifter. I hope Hurst picks this up and only uses these from here on out. It's that important.
