I'm buying a new shifter...what should I get?

I have recently been having some tranny problems. Although I'm not sure, I think that part/all of the problem leads back to a worn shifter. I currently have a B&M Quiksilver. I have around 10,000 street miles on shifter.

I am wondering what you guys are using for shifters. My car is 98% street driven, but I tend to lean towards the 'strip' side of most things . I have a full manual, reverse pattern C6.

Have a good day!

I use the B&M "Hammer" shifter in my Merc. I have had it for 7 years and love it.

I even drilled it and put a line lock switch in the shift knob.

I'm a fan of true gated shifters versus ratchet shifters. Obviously a bunch of guys use ratchets and have had good luck, but they were always hit or miss for me.

Anyway, the Cheetah is excellent...as well as the Winters/Performance Automatic gated shifter. The Cheetah is probably a little "slicker", the Winters shifter is a little nicer looking IMO.

I also would say the Cheetah. I love the way they work. I have a B&M right now works OK but more of the a pain to operate.

shifter

Cheetah is the smoothest shifter on the market also the only shifter that lines up correctly at the shift points on Ford trannies easy to use as well. Only my opinion Gregg

Hurst Qtr. Stick

Ditto on the Qtr. Stick. I haven't had any problems since I bought it. It also fit pretty nice in my factory console. Lee
