Default Pro Racing 5psd short Shifter SCCA Reviews/Thoughts

Ran across this while looking for deals on Ebay. I just bought one. I will be reviewing the product and keeping everyone posted.
Item Description: Here's the deal…we have been winning SCCA, NASA, FARA races this badass shifter for many years. Amazing upgrade for your streetcar!There are hundreds of top winning Miata’s that compete in SCCA classes such as ITS, ITA, SM, STL, AutoCross, Track Day, Drag Racing, NASA, FARA, HSR and others racing groups using this exact shifter across the USA and on other planets.(If you don’t like it after installation, the shifter can be returned for a full refund as long as it is in the exact condition that if it was received when purchased – no racer has ever returned a shifter)Here’s an opportunity to change the way your stock racing transmission acts and reacts on the track or on the street. The result incorporates:· 90% increase of precise/accurate movement· 50% shift throw/movement reduction or faster shift· 90% removal of “play” or “slop”[
· Creates longer synchronizer life· 100% badass made in FloridaManufacturing features:· Light weight powder coated shift arm· Anodized aluminum body· 10 minute easy installation· Includes mounting hardware and instructions· Will not wear out or lose tolerance· https://www.ebay.com/itm/1990-2014-M...0a13%7Ciid%3A1

There was never a problem with the 5 speed shifters. Product unnecessary.

As for 6 speeds, show me the pivot ***** and how all the bushings are "eliminated" so we can guess how quickly the aluminium will wear out.

Idk if I would want an aluminum shifter. Seems like not a good idea.

I've been to Miami. Don't really want anything designed there.

· 90% increase of precise/accurate movement

· 50% shift throw/movement reduction or faster shift

· 90% removal of “play” or “slop

I'd like to know exactly how these measurements were quantified

sounds more like you are promoting the product.

Product description needs to be re written in proper English.

The only thing interesting in that ebay item is picture #5.
The rest is hogwash of the highest order.
If it was used by class winning folk it would be people on here and they would be selling it through SuperMiata or Trackspeed.

If it was a quality product made by serious people they wouldn't dream of marketing it with *** pics.
