to those of you who were able to get a TWM before now, be thankful.

the short shifter is now 185 dollars.

for the shifter and counter-weight knob, they want 260 for the silver, and 275 for the gun metal!

these prices are not only ridiculous, they are HILARIOUS!

Well, at least something was a good deal at that time. Unlike springs and swaybar...

man, that sucks. I was planning on getting it when I had the dough. I don't really think it's that worth it now. You guys think it'll go back down eventually?

tCtunerZ are planning to copy the TWM shifter and sell it for $99. might make sense to wait.

Copy or not - how much "innovation" is in making a short shifter? Move the pivot point 1", make the stick shorter 2" - and you have a $200 product? I don't think so. Let tctunerz copy it and provide some decent competition. At least they are doing something.

eh, i don't know if i'd trust their machine work, or anything they make, for that matter. if they sourced an outside company, maybe.

and, if someone can come up with something to reduce throws further, i'll be thinking about swapping it in. the TWM throws are starting to get long.

I would never trust them with anything they came out with based on the info they've provided over time and D's experience. I'm waiting till TWM slashes their price or another decent company comes out with a comparable product.

IMHO I think that TWM has walked out on a limb and the customers aren't going to follow. Give it some time and I bet prices will come down out of necessity.
