I'm sorry to inform everyone but customers who are paying the core charge and receiving completed units are being delayed. The current wait time is about three weeks. Unfortunately this is just an estimate and it varies with the flow of cores being returned. Cores have been very slow to return, if you have a core that needs to be returned please get it back at your earliest convenience, everyone who is waiting in line behind you as well as myself appreciate it very much.

As of current, please note that any cores not returned within thirty (30) days will not be refunded.

I know that's a lousy thing to do but it's simply not fair to everyone who is waiting in line. If you have a date in mind that you would like to do your install, just let me know when you order and I will accommodate any needs you have. I have purchased a ton of cores myself to help elevate this problem, but I'm not buying anymore cores. The problem is not lack of cores, I own more than enough cores myself to fill orders for everyone waiting in line currently, and then some, it's just that they are not being returned in a timely manner. As soon as the tremendous amount of outstanding cores come in, the wait time should be eliminated, at the very least wait time should be minimized to a few days, not a few weeks, like it was in the beginning.

Please let me know if you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime. Thank you for understanding. If we all do our part we can all have a great product at a great price without a long wait.

Thanks everyone!

I am going to Streets of Willow this Sunday.

Anyone in SoCal with a box installed? I would love to try it out!

Streets of Willow is tight -- never been on the track, but used to watch bikes there quite often. Should be a torture test of car and shifter. Just a tad envious.

Heres a quick video covering the difference between the Z06 and non-Z06 boxes and the solid bushing option.

The rest of the assembily has a little tiny bit of slop in it, like about 0.100in, that's about the thickness of five sheets of paper. when you put your new box in you'll see what I mean, the slop is in the linkage mostly. So you center the box in the middle of the slop, that will get you right where you want to be. I teel people this and they reply like I'm crazy, like there has to be more to it, there's not.

If anyone ever needs help aligning their box, or if they even think they might, I encourage them to simply let me know when they are going to be installing it and I will make sure to make myself available in case they have any questions or need a hand.

One thing that I have found helpful:

Draw a line across the front of your box, not on the box, at the bottom of the box, to mark how far forward it is, BEFORE you remove your old box. This will let you know your on the right track when installing the new box.

The factory pin with the hole in the box is a lousy design, it allows debris into the box, that's at least partially responsible for all the blown seals in everyone's boxes.


Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I was skeptical about this too, but I did exactly as you said and have had zero problems. If anyone has difficulty getting into 1,3,5,R, or 2,4,6 after removing and reinstalling the box, the adjustment for that is sliding the whole box forward or back where it mounts to the torque tube, not between the shifter and the box.

In my opinion it was a bit odd for the first few times I drove the car but once I drove it a little more I hardly noticed it at all. Toms shifter is the most mechanical feeling shifter Iíve ever experienced and I couldnít recommend it more.
Awesome, Thanks suburban!

Three actually, Z06 boxes come with solid metal bushings.They are a little stiffer but you may feel some vibration, especially gong from non-Z box\bushings because the TT Bushings are there to dampen vibration. People who like them prefer the more "direct" and "stiff" feel. Delrin is what I recommend generally. It is a hard industrial plastic that dampens better than being solid mounted like the Z box but is more firm that the Polyurethane bushings which are the third option. Poly offers the most vibration dampening and most stock feel but unlike the factory rubber, Poly is a little firmer and lasts. The Rubber that the factory bushings are made out of is terrible, I have seen cars with 12K miles on them with the factory bushings completely deteriorated. It doesn't really even matter how many miles you put on the factory rubber bushings, they just break down over time.

Solid VS Z06
I make my own solid bushings. They are metal, they function the exact same way as the Z06 bushings do the only difference is that I make them to fit the non-z boxes. This way if you have a Z but you don't want to wait the extra time for a Z box to become available, because there are simply less of them, you can go with the solid bushings and have the same results without an increased wait time.

This being said the difference between all these bushings is not a huge difference. If you drove a car with unknown bushings I would say maybe 3 out of 10 people would be able to tell me what kind of bushing was in the box. If you drove the three different bushings on the same car back to back maybe 5 or 6 out or ten would be able to decipher the difference.
