TWM is terrible, could use recomondations

I ordered a short shifter from TWM. It said online that it should ship in 2-7 days. I got the charge on my credit card, but I have yet to get a tracking number. When I call, I only get some automated response in french. I am considering canceling my order. Does anyone know who makes a good short shifter for an 05' SS?

OTTP is sometimes great and sometimes a pain. I've found it to be a coin toss as far as getting a response. All in all they have rectified every problem I have ever had though I did have to come to the forums to get their attention before.

I have a BPS. It's really good. They ship quickly too.

Plus they actually build world class drag cars. They know what they're doing.

It looks like they only sell shifters for the turbo cars

I have a bps and their solid cable clamps and have been happy with it. Lots of different shifter know choices also. I went with a weighted one. Only issue is it's hotter than hell to grab when you get in the car when it's hot out.

I went with this one. 300 series.
Should have gone with 400 series.
But they are both good for hot weather down here in Florida lol

another vote for BPS.

The shifter is the same. I had one in my supercharged SS, was night and day difference over stock.
