For me, the turbo action shifter is the way to go. Its smooth and the reverse lockout is simple and effective. I know other members have had issues with the 1-2 detent in the trans not being enough to keep it in 1st gear on a launch, I haven't had that problem yet. But my junk is slow and has only been 1.41 to the 60ft.

I have the B&M Pro Stick works good, but the reverse lock out is short and hard to reach with the belts on.

If you need something to accessorize your pinion snubber and purple shaft cam I’ll say TA shifter is the one for you!

I am a big fan of the B&M Quicksilver. Not as race oriented as some have posted here, but I love the way mine shifts.

Yes. That's because TA makes the shifter with 2 different shift gates. You need the one with the lockout from 1st to 2nd.

I love my TA shifter.

Those are my two favorite shifters. Turbo action for the strip and Hurst quarter stick for the street Keith

I have a T/A in my car. I'd rather have a Quarter Stick, but that's just me.

Then you step up to the J converter, MP porting templates for your 906 heads and 6 pac rods.

LOL it also goes well with my Cal Tracs and big roller cam that wasn't selected by color. Probably shouldn't bring up the W2s though. grin

laugh2 you know my “love” for that shifter. Relying on the spring/ball detent on the valve body to hold shifter position is dumb! …..and we won’t even touch on that infamous “2-3 slide”. You know you’ve done it! laugh2

Have a PPP shifter in my Super Stock car, if I was buying a shifter it would be a TA all the way. Paul Forte is first class and can answer any questions but the simplicity of his pretty much makes it a no-brainer IMO. There is no doubt that Brad and his dad make a great shifter and he talked me through an air cylinder issue on my PPP but the only way his would be preferred is aesthetics or ease of getting to clean neutral at the stripe.

And whatever you do don’t buy the M&M which is simply a copycat of the PPP, not fair to Brad and his dad.
