short shifter is a shortshifter...i've tested both of em, they're almost the same to me..definatly better than stock, but i do notice the twm makes the stick length shorter than the others. <---- i guess for a sportier look.

I absolutely love my TWM! thumbsup It's got the shortest stick length and the shortest throw... it is quite a bit stiffer though but I don't find that being a problem, you'll get used to it after a while. Every gear is really precise!

^^yepp, Caleb (Speed4theneed) has the B&M and he loves it, he's thinking about cutting the rod down and making it even shorter

dont you guys fear misshifting w/ a short shifter? That's the only reason why im not getting it. And also the warranty issue.. but yeah.. im just afraid of misshifting.. cause afterall.. the celicas are misshifting a lot.

I have a TWM that I have not yet installed. What will the dealer say if I was to install it and try to claim warranty on certain things? Basically, what will the SS void in terms of warranty work?

The whole point of short shifters are to eliminate miss shifts. Like i said earlier, every shift is really precise... you know exactly what gear you're going into. thumbsup
