Staying above Lift

The other day i was wondering which was a better Short Shifter, and i got a lot of good response. But what my real question is. Which SS is better at keeping you in lift; through 1st to 2nd gear. Is it B&M or TWM???

Well really you don't need one to keep you in lift all you need to do is practice shifting until you get it right. I can land in lift from 1st to 2nd and I have a stock shifter.

I want to hear from those guys that have either a B&M or TWM Short Shift, and which one keeps you in lift.

both do, it's not a matter of which shifter, it's a matter of physically shifting!

I am a little worried about you two guys, But if you like to call each other "daddy", fine by me. The only thing i care about is my next SS, the TRD one was not as short as i thought. But you say that both the B&M and TWM will keep you in lift, and thats alright with me.

well, if you say that they both will keep you in lift from the 1st to 2nd shift. I would go with B&M only because they are a well established company with a good rep. (and being a dealer I can get it at cost)

Sorry!! I have to agree that you dont need a shifter to stay in lift you just need really fast and perfectly timed shifting!
