Default Re: RTD vs CAE vs Coolerworx

I have the street height RTD (300mm) but if I could do it again I would go with the race height (360mm). I would like the extra leverage from the longer shifter and it would put the shifter closer to the wheel.

Pics not working. Would love to see the street version. Is yours a lockout? Iím looking at moving to the street height lockout version sometime this year

Its nice that you can adjust the 1-2 and 5-6 side to side travel and having the reverse lockout is a must for SMG transmission. Got tired of it after 4 months and ordered an RTD which was much more expensive but you can see the craftmanship is at a different level.

If you have a 6mt tranny the RTD self centering spring is much stronger than the IRP, Makes for a workout if you are daily driving your M. On my SMG tranny its perfect.
Wow, thanks for jumping in. I had always thought the IRP was a step above the RTD in terms of quality, with both being below the CAE in that regard. Good to know I was completely off base.

I'm mainly shopping these for my E30 S52-swapped track car, I have an AKG shifter in there which is functional but feels like doodoo.
