We sent a Hurst 6-speed shifter to our partners at TPN Blackforest for install in their street Challenger for testing as a possibility to run in the GRAND-AM car, and for another project we are jointly working on. They took some pics and we have a very comprehensive install "How To" for anyone looking to do this at home.
