The best shifter I have ever had was in my 2004 cobra .. I bought an MGW shifter .. it was great .. I am also partial to the BALL type shift knobs .. had one on my 2001 SS and loved it ..

I had a t-handle in my sandrail, but never cared for it. I now have a 2" ball shift handle and it feels more natural to me. You just have to try them out to find what feels more natural to you.

I am going with a pistol grip shifter, like what is in the challenger.

Had this in my GTO, want the same if I get a Camaro. The chrome stick and black knob looked amazing in the car. Shame it shifted like shit and I had to go back to stock.

Had a T-handle in my 69 before I switched it to an AT. As far as feel, that is entirely up to the driver imo. If you start out with a ball and go to a T, you will most likely find it akward, same goes vice-versa.

The ball also allows for a more relaxed shifting style on the upshifts... under normal driving conditions.

Hurst short throw. Depends on what types they offer from there. I like my leather wrapped in my current 02SS.

I'll stick with the standard shifter for a while and see how it works. If there's a shifter similar to the concept released I'll check out how it feels.

i will do stock for awhile but then i will get the hurst with the cue ball shifter, i personally do not like the pistol grip or t-handle, drove a t-handle and it was kinda weird to grip, never drove with a pistol grip but dont like the design. i would rather have a ball to get good grip and feel on

I would like a short throw, but I don't think the Hurst that comes from the factory is going to be the best option...Once the car is out B&M should have one, and Hurst will probably even come out with something that is better in 6 moinths or so.

the Tr6060 is used in alot of cars so waiting six months isnt going to make the Hurst short throw anybetter. tr6060 is in the viper, corvette, G8 gxp, Gt500 and Gt500kr, just to name a few. the performance shifter companies have already gotten a chance to work with the transmission and know what works by now. B&M probably already has a kit for it even.

If I like the feel of the stock stick I won't change it. I'd only change the stick if I didn't like the feel.

I had a Hurst STS in my Cobalt SS/SC and loved it. I like the weighted feel and as much as the ball sucked in the dead of winter and summer, it was still pretty nice.

I think the Hurst with the white ball shifter will look out of place on a new car. But that's just me.

I'd rather have the improved shift action of a short shifter while maintaining the stock look.

I liked the SLP Hurst Shift knob for the 4th Gens, It was a stock looking leather Knob, with a Hurst H imprinted in it. That would be great!
