Well, after using the Ripper for over a year, I have found something I like better.
After testing and using the Kirban for a month, I can say its smoother, less effort, same throw as the Ripper and very precise.
Dont get me wrong, the B&M is very good too but the Kirban is my choice for now.
Lifetime warranty on the shifter and your satisfaction is guaranteed. I have these in stock and for a great price.
I will sell the Ripper at a great price too if anyone has decided on the B&M.

Thanks and heres the link! http://xmotorsports.com/interior-exterior/

I have had my Kirban shifter for a year and a half and I am very pleased with it, I will buy another Kirban for my Z06.

I had a Kirban in my 00 vert and have one in my Z06. I would rate it as one of my favorite mods.

Perhaps it's time for me to try a Kirban? If Hurst would ever get their s**t together, that might also be a good choice.

I too sell Rippers, but am looking for something a bit more smooth.

Let me know, Nate!

A Kirban might be the trick for the Boss Lady's Z06. She likes the short throw of my Ripper, but it is too hard for her chicken wing arms to shift. I have to admit, the Ripper does have some pretty strong springs in it.

Install is super easy! About an hour, even for the novice. Hell, if you need help, call me! I will walk anyone through the install! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
Redshift, you have mail!
I also have a new knob made exclusively for me and Xtreme that compliments the Kirban. I will post seperately for the knob today on the forum.

Noise is no more than the Ripper. The noise emitted by the aftermarket shifters can be eliminated by taking time to use sealant on the gaskets, adding mass to the shifters themselves or by using Dynomat at the time of the install. There are many tricks that one can do for almost nothing or little money. I offer my knowledge for free with all installs and sales! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Installed Kirban 2 days ago and it rocks. Nate at Extreme was great to deal with. I incorporated all of his suggestions (Dynomat, extra weight, install handle to the left, modified CV joint boot) and am totally satisfied. I took my car to the dyno yesterday and the guy who does the dynos is an active road racer on the weekends and he raved about what a great shifter it was! Is there more noise that stock? Sure, but who cares! When you grab the next gear and it's firm, precise and just feels right. You know what a great mod this is. MUST HAVE!!!

Wasn't Hurst supposed to come out with a "Quikshifter"? Anybody heard anything? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

I ordered one from Jeg's about a month ago. It's from their "Billet/Plus" model line. Still waiting. Last check, Jeg's said to call at the end of April to see if they've received stock yet. My Flameball is getting lonely. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Since I am a dealer for Hurst, I have these on order as well, for stock. Last I have heard, they have delayed the release another 30-60 days. This has happened three times or four times now.
