Thank you for the input, so the shifter heights/lengths (low, normal) for xspec are not the same on the race spec shifter or was "too much" meant as too much in throw reduction ?I personally like the lower profile length on the race spec but it might be a bit much on the X-Spec. It's not too low but also not near as long as stock was. It's just right.
My assumption was the only difference between race-spec and x-spec was the maximum reduction in throw.
To avoid a possible confusion: With profile length/heights I mean the length of the handle, not the reduction in throw (yes, shorter handle will result in more throw reduction because of the shorter way the handle grip has to be moved).
