Review & Install Video

30% Shorter Throw. Gain 30% shorter throws and a better power shifting position by upgrading to a Steeda Tri-Ax Race Short Throw Shifter. Designed to eliminate deflection and that sloppy feel while searching for gears in your MT-82, this top loaded shifter provides several spring options to ensure you hit the gear you want the first time. High quality bushings also aid to bring a positive feel and fun back into the driving experience. Strong and lightweight, the aluminum Tri-Ax Shifter ultimately gives you a smooth, quiet and much more precise connection to your Mustang.

Adjustable Return Springs. Installing a new shifter often equates to hoping you enjoy the new feel when rowing through the gears. That's not the case when you choose this Steeda Tri-Ax Short Throw. Designed to offer a fully adjustable shifting experience, Steeda includes four return springs to give you the shifting feel you desire. With two medium resistance and two high resistance springs, you'll be able to fine tune this Tri-Ax Shifter and never miss a gear again.

Precision Bushings. Two key reasons to upgrade your shifter is to eliminate any unwanted slop or deflection. Utilizing rear poly bushings as well as low friction shaft bushings that are manufactured to precise tolerances, you can rest assured they fit perfectly and will provide a more direct and rigid feel. The included shifter base bushing bracket contributes to further enhance shifting performance. In addition to improved bushings, this US made shifter mounts securely to both the transmission and chassis. This aims to eliminate any "walking" you may be familiar with on fully trans-mounted shifters.

Superior Construction. Crafted to not only reduce throw by 30 percent, this Steeda Tri-Ax weighs 20 percent less than competitors due to using a high-quality aircraft grade aluminum. Designed to withstand extreme heat and hard shifting, the shifter features a lever manufactured from heat-treated and nickel-plated 4140 steel and includes all stainless steel hardware. Steeda even throws in hardware to ensure your factory knob gets locked firmly in place.

Retains Factory Function. When installing a new shifter, you don't want to worry about losing any of the factory features you've grown to enjoy. Steeda made sure to design a short throw shifter that not only reuses your factory shift knob, but retains factory back-up camera functionality and the pull-up style reverse lockout. Improve your shifting experience all while retaining desirable safety features.

Application. This Steeda Tri-Ax Race Short Throw Shifter is specifically designed for use on 2015-2017 GT or EcoBoost Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 manual transmission. Please choose the appropriate fitment from the options above.

    Drag racing must have

    I didn't install it my self looked like a pain with out a lift so I took it to a shop had em do the shifter transmission mount and safety loop I told em to use the stiffer springs that come in the kit vs the medium my shifter has almost 0 play you have to use some muscle to push over left to hit first or push harder to the right for 5 straight up 3 straight down 4 ive had 0 lock out in high rpms when flying thru gears the shifts fell more solid and I think it helps with not breaking your shift forks as easily that a lot of ppl are having when trying to push these cars all in all great buy if you plan on drag racing your car, my car will stil try to break loose in 3th after shifting from second at 7200 to third smiles all day p.s you can't tighten your shift knob all the way down or you can't get in to reverse you won't be able to lift the reverse lock out high enough to put it in reverse best solution I found is put on some thread locker on the shifter before you screw on the shift knob get it as tight as you can but be able to pull up on the lock out to hit reverse and let it sit over night

    Excellent quality

    I love the upgraded steeda shifter night and day difference!!!! I had a shop do the installation my body can't flex anymore. Lol But the only thing I suggest is that you use more Dyno mat around the housing of the shifter. I did 3 layers and then did the tunnel.

    Smooth, Precise, Short Throws - Perfect

    The function is perfect. Shifts feel crisp. Reverse lockout feels like stock. The medium spring is just right. It directs the stick over for you as you shift up into 3rd so you can just throw it forward. I would only recommend the heavy spring if you primarily track this car, but in that case I would also recommend a trans-mount shifter. The install took me about 5 hours on jack stands without removing the exhaust and driveshaft. I did have to lower the transmission. I used all of the Dynamat supplied and even added a bunch of closed cell foam. It still makes noises in the cabin that you don't have with the factory shifter. I am going back under the car tomorrow and plan to try to throw more sound deafening at it but not really expecting an improvement. I can live with the noises it makes. When I first installed it, I was concerned because it was rough getting it into first and even second. The plastic collar for reverse lockout has to slide against a guide on the left that is part of the shifter body. It keeps you from pushing the stick too far to the left. Initially, it was not letting me push far enough left thus creating the roughness. After two days I think I've worn a slight groove in the cost and it goes in like butter.

    Pretty solid shifter!

    Shifter feels so much better then the stock shifter. You can really bang the gears now. Only thing that would make it better is if came pre built with new shifter linkage.

    Getting Into Gear!

    This short shifter was MORE than what I expected. Shifts are concise, solid, and it truly helps with the confidence Of knowing that you won't ever miss a gear again. This was self-installed, and the toughest part was getting to a couple of bolts on top of transmission but it is possible. This Tri-Ax is made of solid material, glad I went with it. Thanks AM!

    Great product

    Install took a little longer don't know if it was the car r shifter. Had to do a little modify but sometimes it happens. So shifting is still kinda hard to get used to being a lot stiffer than factory but i will like it once use to it

    Trax short shifter

    Pros: No slop, great shifting in all gears, good resistance, less weight. Cons: Causes a substantial amount of heat and more noise. Not enough not to buy it, but can feel the heat when laying your arm down and with music on noise doesn't bother me.

    You need this

    This shifter greatly improves the time between shifts with the much shorter throws. If you are running at the track or just enjoy fast acceleration this is the one to get. I had my local dealer install for under $300. It did not add any unwanted noise in the car.
