actually there is a company called axxtion short throw shifters that produced a full 54% reduction in throw that goes in the engine bay.... so you can get the same effect of the nst engine bay one and the cabin one with just the 1 axxtion one and since the axxtion retails for 75 bucks compaired to the nst one its the better buy.... pm me if you interested and ill give you the info to call and order one : ) oh i i believe its 75 shipped : )

I'm runnin' the TRD SSK in the engine bay along with the NST in-cabin, love the nice short throw... I may shorten it up even more with that Axxtion one... Isn't Axxtion the guy who said he was the manufacturer making the SSK's for TRD?

yah axxtion is the company that has the trd ssk contract. Steve at axxtion ows the patent and design to all of the trd engine bay short shifters... pretty crazy... when i went to his shop and he was building the trd box and packaging up the shifters.... great guy plus factor is is only 75 shipped and offers a 54% reduction in shift.... not knocking nst but nst ssk is only a 30% reduction in both engine bay and in cabin... so with both your at 60% and almost double the cost im not really sure how noticable 6% would be..... but my next step is to use the axxtion ssk with the nst incabin for a total of 84% reduction... lolz wanna see what that is like haha

Yep, that's my goal as well. Especially since I replaced the stock shift knob with a taller CF knob that basically extends the height of the stick about two inches... that extra stick length negates some of the shortness of throw. I do like the short throw of the TRD/NST combo I have now, but I think it will be awesome with an Axxtion/NST combo... but I probably won't be abble to purchase the Axxtion for awhile, my job is in jeopardy right now so I can't spend money till I'm sure I still have a job... SO, you'll have to let me know how you like that combo if you get it installed before I do...
