MGW or TWM Short throw shifter

http://www.twmperformance.com/shorts...rtshifters.htm
http://www.mgwltd.com/camaro2010_sho..._shifter.shtml
Well the Hurst has now pissed me off as far as the rattle so Im going for a full shifter. it now rattles at anything between 40 and 55mph. I know everyone loves there MGW but havent heard anything on the TWM. I bet its just as nice. The MGW is a 33% reduction in throw the TWM is 40% The hurst is a 44%. Whats best for a driver car? Will I notice a difference? I do like the MGW race shifter knob better

Don't know much about the TWM, but I do know you can't go wrong with the MGW. I had one in my C6 and now in my Camaro and love them!

I have had my MGW for 3 months and am very happy with it. It has a very solid feel and I haven't missed a shift so far

I second the Barton ! Shorter throw than the rest and cost effective. Tried the MGW before I got the Barton and it is a very good option I just couldn't justify the extra cost of replacing mounting hardware. And the use of set screws in the mounting cage versus a one piece oem design that's on the car, Long term durability.
55555 miles on the car with the Barton as of my drive into work today

There is no noise or rattles as I have heard with the hurst. Just make sure the install is tight as any shifter will rattle if installed half ass.
A shorter throw means your shifts are quicker and should be more accurate lessening the chance you miss the shift. As far as comparison the Barton is noticeably shorter throw than the MGW.

Every one who has touched my TWM complete replacement shifter wants one. The first words that come out of their mouths is. It feels like a race car!

I got a Barton also. I like it, but I went with a TWM shift nob. The TWM is a 40% throw reduction, and the Barton is a 45% throw reduction. These two are the shortest I've heard. I know you can order just the shifter from TWM or the whole package. Either way, you can't lose.

it makes the car sound like a piece of junk. I paid too much for it to sound like that.
