    Convert your boring H-Pattern box to a sequential shifter

    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most...

    If I still had my Cobra I would be all over that.

    Nice, but not for 2400.00

    It's only money David.

    Hell, if I was not planning on getting rid of the Viper I would consider one for it.

    Now that would be a worth while change. I like the idea and how it works.

    i understand a H-pattern becomes difficult for you.... best to go automatic at your age.

    Remember how difficult the 2-3 shift was on our trucks?

    Would have been nice for them too.

    Don't think it will adapt to my Toploader or Muncie but it is pretty cool. After working an H-pattern for nearly 50 years I would probably forget what I was doing and try to torque the thing to the side and back and forth which would be an interesting spectacle in traffic.

    yeah, that was really a pitty design.... due a plastic piece in the clutch pressure bearing ?? i remember i could not go above 5000 rpm to be sure i got it shifted.....does the Viper has any issues with that ????

    Nope, no problems with the Viper shifting.

    Most of the problem with the trucks was the rubber isolator on the shifter. I removed mine and it was considerably better, but not perfect.

    I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

    I need a pickup, but I can buy a cheap POS for that purpose. I have a friend that may be moving here from Huntington Beach and he has a Jeep Wrangler and a Ford Raptor. If he does move here I may get another Jeep so we can go out and beat around the trails here. Of which are almost endless.

    Truthfully while the Viper is nice, it's not a Cobra and I have never been fully satisfied with the Viper.

    Or I may keep it. One never knows.

    i assume i can compare a Cobra versus a Viper as my Morgan +4 and the GTN .... the same feeling but at 100 km/h instead of 200....
