PRESS RELEASE-V6 Camaro Shifters from MTI Racing

Announcing the arrival of the MTI Racing by UUC Six Shooter Shifter for V6 Camaro

The stock Camaro shifter has many rubber components that numb the performance feel. MTI Racing teamed up with manufacturing giant UUC Motorwerks to engineer the V6 Camaro shifter with the best materials, shorter throw, and a better overall feel. Now you can confidently go through the gears with confidence and precision. The throw is reduced by approximately 25% and a HUGE improvement in feel. It feels like 1000% improvement.

The stock OEM shifter is made using a 4-pc shaft that is bushed with rubber, a pressed-on ball joint, and a welded-on pivot that holds a shaft bearing attached to rubber linkage bushings. The new MTI Racing Six Shooter Shifter for V6 Camaro is made of high quality stainless steel with a 1-pc ball machined directly into the lower stick, and a roller bearing at the base shift rod link. The kit also replaces the stock rubber bushings with durable delrin composite bushings, increasing the overall strength and life of the shifter assembly. Our shifter has been designed to perfectly work with the stock transmission self centering mechanism and have better then factory performance. The MTI Racing Six Shooter Shifter requires little to no extra effort when shifting, and instills confidence with its solid structural feel. Mission accomplished.

The MTI Racing Six Shooter shifter kit is not an entire shifter housing replacement. The kit includes all the components to convert the shifter assembly and its internal hardware with the highest quality components, while retaining the factory housing. Installation of the shifter requires the transmission to be lowered slightly to remove and install the shifter assembly. The new shifter is designed to use the stock shift knob or an aftermarket knob. The throw reduction is around 25%. We have tested over and over different throw reductions, and we felt that the final version provided the best overall confidence in shifting. Made in the USA.
You can find this shifter at any of your local MTI Racing parts dealers.

What's the real purpose of the bushings in your kit? Does it make that much a difference in the shifting or the feel? Doesn't seem like it would since these are for the shifter "base" for lack of better term.

Wonder if you just installed the shifter w/o the white bushings, would it feel "softer" like the way the stock one feels now but with the shorter throw?
