Hurst Paddle Shift

Been looking at the Hurst Shifter for my 2SS Auto and happen to see this.


Any one have this?

Total was 216 out the door from Summit, I think these and the shifter and plate will make a killer combo.

I love the idea, and the design, but I'll wait until this new price comes down to atleast 150.

Have it on for a couple of days and loving it so far. It's a bit pricey but if you use tap shift a lot, it's worth it.

It matches up with the black/gray interior and the Drake Billet shifter very nicely....

It's a sweet mod! Just expensive!! But hey, I've bought plenty of overpriced 4x4 parts for my old Land Rover. Their aftermarket was ridiculous as well haha

Keep the allen wrench in the car with you because you might need while out driving. Had the car out for lunch today, the paddles were adjusted to perfection yesterday, and had to park it out in Texas direct sun light (HOOOTTTT), adjustments were needed to to get them working again. I think it was too hot and the material in the back of the steering wheel was soften making the adjustments needed to click again. The optional washers included with the paddles were too small as a backing material for the steering wheel.

I read about the softness of the factory buttons and was wondering if they could be stiffened up with some sort of metal overlay with a 3m backing? or even a billet button and a harder spring to handle the weight/abuse (LOL) from the paddles.

I have to get my hands on it to see though.

The adjustments are made with these 4 set screws pushing against the back of the steering wheel to raise the paddles away from the buttons. The gaps between the paddles and the buttons need to be right for this thing to work properly. It's not the problem with the buttons. The back of the steering wheel is plastic and can get very soft when it's very hot here in Texas. These set screws might need to be readjusted to have the proper gaps between the paddles and the buttons. Hope this will clear it up.

Sorry for the steep pricing guys... but we wanted to keep the highest quality of material (stainless steel and aluminum) AND keep everything on these paddle shifters 100% made in the USA :flag2:

A suggestion for you guys. Have the optional washers a little bigger, perhaps a one long piece. As they are, they tend to slides when you adjust the set screws against them. These paddles are definitely helpful in a turn as you can have your hands away from the original 3 and 9 positions of the steering wheel and still have access to the buttons....

Thanks for the suggestion - kbui!

The optional washers were a last minute fix for high interior temp operation that one of our Camaro5 members, Beauwulf, had discovered during track testing (thanks again - Beauwulf).

We didn't want to further delay the release of these kits or increase costs - so we went with off-the-shelf stainless steel washers that were readily available. In the future, when and if costs come down; we may be able to make a one piece flat stamped part.
