    I'm looking for a handle to replace the crappy one on American muscle house brand "sport" shifter, it's too short. Does anyone know how long or have an approximate length of the steeda tri-ax handle?

    I can't answer your question, but check out MGW. You can adjust the handle to whatever length or position you want.

    The Tri-Ax is about the same as the stock shifter height. Maybe a bit shorter.

    I want to say the Tri-Ax has 2 different heights that you can set it at.

    I actually made the switch from the Tri-Ax handle to the Steeda Comfort Pro handle.

    I wasnt able to reach the Tri-Ax handle comfortably after i moved the seat back a few inches. I had to lean forward in the forward gears to shift. Not something that is possible in a 4 or 5 point harness.

    Now i can shift just fine without leaning forward.

    I think the Comfort Pro was modeled after the stock shifter handle. Its still on the Tri-Ax base so the shifts are still pretty short.

    the tri ax is right between a stock handle and something really short like a pro 5.0. I think it is the best of both worlds, comfortable for just cruising around, but i am also able to powershift it with relative ease.

    There are two handles for the tri-ax.

    The short throw handle and the comfort pro. The comfort pro is modeled after the stock handle. I think ihave one kicking around to grab a pic of.

    The combination of that handle with a pro5.0 base and stock knob is the best combination ive driven with.

    Just bolting that lever to my stock t5 was great, it made a great deal of inprovement in feel. I have the mgw now but the tri-ax lever is a nice piece, would still have in if I would have had the money for the entire shifter back in the day.

    Cool man sounds good, I think I'mma get er. I think that "sport" shifter won't be half bad with it.
