Shorter MGW Shifter Lever

Hi guys I read in a past thread that I was unable to find where a person with a MGW shifter wanted a shorter lever and that MGW had one and sent it to him. I was wondering if MGW does indeed have one and how people like the shorter one? I would be interested in purchasing it if it does exist, I love the shifter and the knob but I think it would look a little better if it was lower but it is just my opinion. On the subject of the knob I was thinking about using the stock one but I bought the composite knob and I am so glad I did the design of it is perfect, whenever I am shifting my fingers are always in the correct grooves without trying and with no effort I recommend the composite knob to anyone looking for a replacement.

the knob can sit a little lower with ball types but not the stock shaft or the race knob sorry.

BUT....

i have tried ALL sorts of options with the stock knob and race knobs and believe me even though it FEELS like it would be better, it is not, the effort when going lower goes up and the notchiness of the tranny becomes more evident.
