i realize this was mentioned in a previous thread. but i have some questions about it. for one will it wear down on your tranny, i have heard some stories of people shifting with that on differnt cars and it hurting thier transmission. ok and second how do you use it i get the ratcheting forward for up one gear and back to go down a gear but when your on it do you need to take your foot off the gas when you shift or no. and then last does anyone on the forum have it and if so what do you think about it?

I installed the TCI Street Fighter ratchet shifter about 3 months ago. It works exactly as advertised. I think it was a good investment.

As far as damaging your transmission goes, I don't think there is much to worry about as long as you are not abusive. I think that downshifting seems harder on the transmission than upshifting, but I don't beleive it will damage your transmission.

NO you do not have to let off at all when upshifting especially during spirited accelerating.

If you like to manually shift your automatic I think it is an excellent modification and money well spent. The price has come down around $100 since it was first out. You can get one direct from TCI for $360.

Here is an interesting video (not me) of a TCI Shifter in action.

WOW! $339 at Jegs... that is one heck of a good price.

Tell her the more you spend the nicer the ride she gets to ride in.

Wow that rhymed. Sing it to her! Techno Viking Style.
