Installed a B&M Ripper Shifter today in my 02 Z06. All I can say is wow, what a difference. Shifts are short, firm, direct. I had a little problem missing 3rd gear while drag racing, happened to me enough times to make me go out and buy this shifter and it made all the difference. To bang third you just push up and it goes right in. I definitly reccomend this mod to anyone who races their car. Its a bit stiff but I know as I drive it I'm sure it will soften up. The install went pretty smooth, being careful while removing the trim panel not to scratch anything it only took an hour.
