Product Reviews

I installed a Tri Ax shifter in my 04 GT tonight and I have to say it's the best mod I've done to the car yet! Ordered my from late model restoration with their discount code from another Mustang forum. Very happy with it. I was going to go with a MGW but decided to give the Steeda a try. Your promotional video is what sold me and a impressive dealer network. I'll recommend your product to others.

Cruised around in my Mustang after work getting more of a feel for the Steeda. Haven't had any missed shifts so far. Love how solid it feels too.

I have had 5 Mustangs and all of them have used the triax shifters. So no doubt when I brought home my Cobra I ordered this one. I have driven other cars with different shifters and none can compare. Great company with a great product!

I've used the Pro 5.0 shifter and the Ripper Shifter but found that the Steeda Tri-Ax is by far and away the best shifter. It shifts more smoothly than any other shifter I've used and never misses 3rd - a huge plus when you are having some fun at the track. If you are looking for a shifter for your T56 equipped Mustang look no further - you won't find a better shifter anywhere at any price.
