New Camaro Hurst Shifter?

While I was looking in my MotorTrend Magazine and seen the 2011 Hurst Camaro very nice by the way. What I really like is the Hurst Shifter.
I was curious if anybody knew anymore information on them?
Let me know what you think.


Here is the link to the article if interested:

I like it and then I don't. lol But the more I look at it, it seems I tend to like it. I don't care to much for the other ones either.

doesnt look like it would be a quick or easy shifter. i like my hand on top instead of the side of the shifter.

Yeah tell you the truth I don't think I would be able to get used to it. I like the stock shifter over any others.

Well the kit I baught aftermarket comes with an extra upper stick so you could mount the stock ball back on if you choose. The hurst really does shorten the throw. Check this video out.

i have the hurst. its a great shifter. you just have to change out the upper part of the shifter depending on which ball you want to use.
