MGW '12 GT

Well just got back from LaMotta Performance in long wood, fl and Jake put in my MGW shifter for me. Great guy, even sured up my exhaust clamps with tac welds for free.

This car is entirely different to drive now. This shifter is capable of hammering through gears much faster than I'm physically able to. No matter how hard I try to make it miss a gear, she just slides right in! I can't say good enough things about MGW and LaMotta Performance. +1 for them.

Installed mine a month ago. Couldn't be happier. Great shifter. As an engineer, I am surprised they put so much technology into the performance but forgot one of the most important elements.

+1 you would think after the 05, they would have fixed the issue.

What is the most important element they forgot? Forgive my ignorance, this was going to be my 1st mod of 2013...

AM3...most important element they missed was shifter design and the ability to shift without concern for missed shifts with slightly spirited driving. This is due to substandard rubber support bushing and flimsy linkage. Great car but without a doubt, the stock shifter is the weak drivetrain link.
MGW is great and there are others including Barton.

Yup, that rubber bushing was very sloppy.

An I got you now, I thought you were referring to the mgw shifter having a flaw. I do agree about the original stock shifter.

I'm planning on taking my car to the track often. Is a short throw shifter like the mgw better for track than stock or is it only better for drag?

Anything. Reverse...driving to the mall.

Lol. Track it will be helpful for both up and downshifting as you won't have to concentrate on getting in gear while driving. Your car is going to go into the gear you want not no mans land.

Thanks! I was talking with a guy from MAD Motorsports and he said something about short throws being too clunky or something. Defiantly going to buy this shifter pronto.

Lol, shifting stock around 3-4-5 can be a friggin adventure sometimes. Want the MGW so bad but want to install myself and we just got a foot of snow. Might have a garage next year though so I guess Ill be patient...is it time yet?

Haha same issue here. Just keep getting snow. Local shop said 150$ to install it but I know I can do it myself. *sigh*

I am not sure how they would be clunky...

Less throw, quicker to get into gears, perfect shifts every time.
