    Any negatives with the 2009 SPT short throw shifter

    Question for anybody with an 08-09 SPT short throw shifter - are their any negatives to it? I have never heard of any, kind of makes you wonder why the WRX comes stock with the "long throw shifter".

    Cost and non-adjustable height. I think the shifter is a little tall for my liking and I was disappointed that the short-throw didn't fix that problem. Although, I have adjusted to the height and it doesn't bother me as much anymore.

    I've had some issues shifting from 3rd to 4th while in the upper rev range. I'm not certain it's all the the STi short throw shifter, it could be the long clutch throw in the 2009 WRX that's throwing me off, but either way it's the only issue I've had with the shifter.

    I have it on my 07. It gives shorter shifts without losing mechanical advantage. At least i think so... mine came with it from factory.

    I added a kartboy short shifter and shifts became super short.

    I think spt short shifter + kartboy gives shorter shifts than just kartboy alone? Please correct me if i'm wrong.
