I was just wondering how a short throw shifter could benefit any since the shift duration depends on clutch release from your leg? Could someone explain it to me?

Less likely to miss a shift as well as the gears being that much closer, so while the release of the clutch does decide how fast of a gear change you make, if you can have the transmission in gear sooner (short throw vs. long throw stock), then you can effectively quicken shifts.

ive had the b+m for over a year now and i think its good. it does have a much tighter feel than the stock shifer and the gears are much closer, both front to back and side to side. sometimes after having driving the car for a few days, ill get in the truck to go for a drive and notice that i keep going from 2nd to 5th lol cause they are closer together. i dont race or anything, just normal driving and it seems good, well as good as these NV transmissions can be anyway, thats another story

What is the difference between the 94s and the 95s? I have a 95 and I want to get a B&M, but that would really suck if it hit the dash.

1. yes it comes with the knob (I got mine from jegs) it is the coolest looking knob ive seen
2. I think the 94 and 95 are the same shifter I think they change in 98
3. Love my B&M so much when i thought of selling my truck for a tacoma the first thing I did was look to see if B&M has a short throw for them.
4. Shortens throw so much when you first get it it feels like you just click into gear it barely moves
5. Buy it!

it will work for a 97, BUT it appears they no longer make a B&M short throw for our s10's. i think hurst still makes a short throw tho
