Steeda Tri-Ax/F Short Throw Shifter
#4967 - 08/20/02 09:15 PM

In another post someone asked if this worked on contours because it was advertised that it is for th Focus. I spoke with the sales dept at steeda and they confirmed that it will work with all MTX 75 contiques. This is a much cheaper shifter then the B&M short throw and he has offered 10% off the price of 109.95 for a qty 10 and 15% off for qty 20. More info can be found on www.steeda.com under the Focus drivetrain section. Interested parties holler.

Geez, that seems high.

Check OBX for there version of the B&M



Link to Ebay for $69.00 Dutch Auction

Or Maybe this one from Steeda. Weird thin is that Steeda is not mcuh of a shorter shift lever, but is designed to have short throws.


Shift your Focus faster and easier with Steeda's Tri-Ax/F short throw shifter. The Tri-Ax/F is more than just a short handle. We re-engineered the entire shift mechanism with an improved pivot ratio so you can enjoy faster shifts without having to bend down to reach the shift knob. The shift knob is located in a more comfortable position than the too-tall factory shifter, without being too-short like other "short-throw" shifters

See Ebay auction for starting bid at $80 No shift knob with the Steeda tho!


Contact the seller on Ebay and I bet he can hook you guys up with a real Group buy price!!!

I contacted the seller about some type of a group buy on these. personally, I would rather have the obx, it looks nicer, and is a shorter shifter, the steeda even says in the description about the length of the shifter. Anyway, if anyone is interested LMK and I will make a more formal message when he replies.
thanks

I would personally rather have a longer shifter than the B&M, but shorter than stock. That would make the Steeda shifter perfect for me. The B&M is too short for my likings and I don't care for it.

I am in... I want one anyways, cause now I own a focus, so I want it.. put me down on a list.. especially for 80$$!!

besides, Steeda replaces about the whole linkage and everything, not just the shifter...
