HAve you guys seen this? I was thinking about getting them. you can get them from JCWsportcompact.com for like $50. I think they might look pretty sweet. I have seen them on another car and tought they made the stock front end a little more sporty looking.
Aerospeed makes a good floor bar, so I've heard. It's like a strut tower bar except it goes on your rear floorboard and bolts onto the seat belt mounts, I think. Helps even more with chassis flex. I heard a couple of good things about it and he said the same thing you did, that Aerospeed sucks, but he liked how well their floor bar worked.
aerospeed short shifters stink..... I treid one because it was cheap and hated it... I ended up getting the one i should have gotten in the first place. The good old B&M.. They are the best but cost about 120-140. The B&M comes with a new pivot plate also. The aeroslow crap shifter looks a lot like the one ment for a honda civic.... (i installed one on my buddies car).. I give them props for using a bearing instead of a bushing though.
Problems with the aerospeed are
It binds without some creative engineering
Does not come with all the neccesary parts
I got no instructions
Uses lots of stock pieces that are replaced buy better shifters
It does not shorten the throw that much anyway when your done
Buy the B&M its worth the money and you get more then you do witht the aerospeed
correction....his name is chimmike...not whatever i said earlier...and the trannys dont match up, but meant that a ga16 shifter fits into his.....so ask him if he likes it...i might get one....pacesetter is shit....but who knows
from what ive heard arospeed shifters suck, ive even heard of them breaking in your hand, if i were you i would get the pacesetter, ya ya, i know pacesetter sucks, but not as far as this short shifter goes, its the same model as the classic smc, the best short shifter ever made for a 200sx.
Pacesetter performance products are low-end but the SS is good one. I have the pacesetter short shifter on my car.... its great, not a single problem. Like cleanb14 said, its a copy of a quality classic. Cant beat that... I give the PS a :thumbup:
dont buy anything but an old smc shifter, pacesetter, or b&m. i bought one off ebay and it snapped off at the weld on the pivot point on valentine's day. it never felt right either bc i was using a tiny bolt. it was night and day after i installed my pacesetter. its on $70 shipped from nopi.
The pacesetter shifter is just the shifter, the ball, and the little rubber cap that goes under the ball. You'll need to reuse a few things from the stock shifter assembly, namely the shifter brushings. The B&M is an entire shifter assembly. It does cost more, but it is a direct drop-in replacement.
