The feeling behind driving a manual transmission is always fun in a Mustang, and throughout each generation of the Mustang, the feeling has been what enthusiasts search for. With the 2011-2014 Mustang, the new 6-speed gearbox begged drivers to control their cars as they accelerated faster than before. To get the most out of the gearbox and the car’s setup, one of the best upgrades around is a short-throw shifter which not only makes throws between gears smoother but also feels more connected to the car than the factory setup. With a short-throw shifter, you’re able to get the most out of your 2011-2014 S197.
The transmission has always been a weaker point than others in the MT82-equipped cars, but there are upgrades that can be done to make them perform better than ever. One of these upgrades is switching to a short-throw shifter like the Steeda Tri-Ax which will improve your shifter performance and durability. The Steeda Tri-Ax shifter features a stabilized bushing that reduces noise, vibration, and harshness and is incredibly engaging when driven hard. With a solid noise as the shifter hits each gear, you can be sure that your car is driving properly in addition to being more capable and less likely to face issues commonly associated with these gearboxes.
Here at Steeda, we have been developing, modifying, and racing the Mustang platform for over 30 years and in that time we have seen exactly which parts work best in both racing and everyday driving scenarios. When it came to developing a proper short-shifter, we knew exactly how to create one that was not only easy to install but also looked and felt good while improving the car overall. We have run these short-throw shifters on our personal cars and our race cars and can promise that they will be perfect for you.
