Default Short throw shifters

Anyone changed out the factory shifter on a 2009 ZR 1
for a short throw shifter (like a B & M) and if so how do you like
it and is it worth the effort?

Msw. Don't even consider anything else. They all feel like junk in comparison. Mine had one. My Z06 had another popular brand. No comparison.

I think you mean MGW and you're right, I love mine.

The quality is evident when you open the box. A great mod.

There is only ONE shifter replacement for the Corvette and that is MGW!

Got an MGW in my 2009 ZR. It was a very easy install. I would never consider going back to the stock shifter now. It was very easy to learn and seems to get smoother each time I drive. It was well worth the time and money. Definitely a recommended mod.

Has anyone had the rattle like the ZO6 has had with their's? My cars got enough tire noise I don't need anything else.
Thanks
