I might have missed it, but have you decided to make this for other people?

*picture of adapter*

that adapter in the picture would be damn near impossible for me to make for sale by hand, and make it worth my while. that piece took a long time to make. granted it was the first one ever, so subsequent ones would be a little quicker. but it would still take an unreasonable amount of time.

however, i did have a lot of interest when i posted this up on srtforums, neons.org and 2gn. nitehawk (srt-4store on 2gn) convinced me to try and sell a bunch of them. we created a different style that would be easier for me to mass produce. then when push came to shove and we made the announcement that i was ready to make a lot of them there were a total of 2 people that wanted one. so the project got scraped.

pardon the crappy pics, but this is what version 2 looked like. this was the only one that was being promoted. i never made any attempt to promote the one on my car.

I didn't make any adapter, I just cut down the shifter and threaded it to 3/8-16, and I was done...

how were you able to do that?

the shifter rod is ~.573" or do you have an aftermarket shifter?

so you ground the end down to get to about 3/8 and then put a die over it?

I had to cut the top down 2.5"(not necessary, but I wasn't comfortable with the height), and change the angle 30 degrees because the grips I'm using are angled like the original Hurst pistol grips. Then I ground a slight taper in the end of the shaft and tapped it down to 3/8-16. I couldn't just grind it down then tap, because I needed to be sure it was centered, and not having a lathe, this was the best possible option.
