Default Maddog Shifter

Is anyone using the Maddog shifter kit? I recently email Chuck to inquire about one but I'd like to hear from anyone using this about quality and improvement over stock. He also asked me about what reduction I'd be interested in, not real sure the answer to that.

Default Re: Maddog Shifter

My GT had a stocker, then a Hurst STS, then a Maddog STS 80% reduction. I had Chuck graft on a Hurst stick because I likes the look and I wanted the threaded knob ability. What you need to consider with the Maddog is that not only are the throws reduced but the side to side spacing between the gates is also reduced. This means you have to be consciously precise when shifting to guide into the correct gear. And because of the loss of leverage, the effort is a lot higher, especially when shoving the lever up into reverse against the crossover spring. It is and so feels like a stocker (with a relocated pivot) and so feels just like a stocker, but shorter and with less leverage. I would recommend a 50% most times.
