Maddog STS

Post by Lackof » Fri Apr 13, 2007 3:15 pm

Simply amazing product. I can shift with the flick of my fingers instead of moving my whole wrist forward to shift.Chuck is a great guy to do business with.

You can get the sts at the following link....

I purchased the 65% STS with the rod brake. The rod brake provides people that shift hard a chance of saving their gear selectors from breaking and preventing bending of their shifting forks. All in all it cost me 150 bux shipped and i get 35 bux back on the core charge when i send my stock shifter back to chuck. So it was really 115 for the whole setup. Great price for an excellent peice. Took roughly 1-week n a half for to arrive and i ordered on thursday/friday.

BTW I have the 65% heavy-duty Maddog "Race" model without the stops (got mine before he offered that feature), and it is awesome. Highly recommended.

I had one in my SOHC and NYG, whatever throw he had was the highest. It was damn nice but my friend seemed to have trouble finding 2nd gear. I may pick one up again but I'm content with my stock shifter right now, I can shift damn fast so it's not high on my list of stuff to do.

yah i dunno what it is maybe it's his shifters, but after i got this installed and went for a test drive i missed 2nd over and over ... prob. a max of 4 times throughout my pulls on the highway. It also seems that first is really really hard to slide into when your just sitting at a stop light. You get used to it and now i can hit 2nd all the time, but 1st is still tough. I had to jam it into gear today, which concerned me a lil.

I never had a problem with it but she did. She said my car was a POS cuz it didn't have power steering and she couldn't get it into 2nd gear. She was just retarded tho.

I have a 2nd Gen Maddog and I'd like to say his products are top notch! I've met Chuck in person and he's a stand up guy as well!

I've had my 65% for just over a year now and I love it. When I ordered it, I had Chuck thread it for a Skunk 2 shift knob (almost 1lb in weight). The shifting compared to stock is Astounding. After driving my buddys 99 R/T with a stock shifter, I will never go back. Hell sometimes I think it shifts better than my brothers 93 VR4. Heres a quick pick, yes I know my car is dirty.
