Shifter

Anyone know how to make the shifts smoother? If there's any way. It feels kinda hard sometimes. Not putting it in gear just like moving the shifter left right up down

Which one? I've got an MGW and it does feel a lot stiffer going into gear (natural since its a short throw spring loaded), it also has a click when it gets into gear so you know its there. A little more description on what you mean would help.

Its a more performance shifter so of course its going to feel harder to get in gear (stiffer wise), but you will have no doubt its in gear when its in.

I still won't go back to a stock shifter. My parents let me pull the corvette into the street last weekend so i could plasti dip my wheels in the garage, and man did that stock shifter feel loosey goosey compared to my MGW.

I've heard mixed reviews on most shifters but I never heard a bad thing about the MGW.

MGW is hands down the best shifter for our cars.

I came upon a thread on ME, and there was an article explaining that the MGW was the only shifter that was redesigned from the ground up, not just improving on the factory unit. But I don't remember where that thread was. But one thing to know about MGW is that they make precision gun parts first, so they stick to very precise tolerances for there shifters.

I ordered mine through MGW, it took less than a week to arrive in California.

I think it was around $200 shipped, but it's been a few years, so I'm not sure.
