Hey Jeff, any down side to this shifter? Im leaning towards the CAE over the Numeric, the CAE with cup cables must be amazing.

I made a very similar vid years ago when I installed mine. Slight side to side play is hard to eliminate. I had an early shifter and since he's changed to a steel pivot versus the old brass. It's a tad better/tighter tolerance but most say it's normal to have a tiny side to side play.

It looks to me like the cable is moving properly... I'm not sure what you are expecting here, but the car does require a certain amount of movement before the gear actually shifts. In the video, the side to side play is accompanied by a proportional amount of cable movement - just not enough to change gears. If the shifter was moving without the cable moving - that would indicate a loose mechanism or "play". I'm not seeing that in the video.

numeric is "crisper" and more "bolt action" than the 997ssk.. which is still, MUCH better than stock. nothing "amazing" about any of them lol.

yea, I get the movement. The play Iím showing Iím just attributing to the slack in the stock cables.

That would be tough to show in a video... The only way to prove slack is to show what is happening to the shift levers on the transmission when you are rocking the shifter as in the video. If those levers aren't moving as the cables move, then you have proven your issue. Otherwise, you are just showing the cables moving when you move the shifter - as they should.

Yes - that video shows movement in the shifter without a corresponding movement in the cables. Cables moving back and forth are not helping shift gears - that is excessive play.

Yes, the OP video looks like he's forcing it more and the cables are moving, but this is isolated to the shifter itself. Since then, he's changed the pivot to steel versus the original brass piece and the tolerances are slightly tighter; however, it's IMPOSSIBLE to remove all the play considering the pieces have to fit together and there's so many moving parts (cable trans suck).

- point being a little play is normal and acceptable.

Every time I think I want an old(er) P car I am reminded to what junk rowing the gears in one is. Hence why every video you see the shifts are always slow in P cars. Literally like pulling a paddle backwards. Not to mention the weirdo pedals off the floor and offset pedal box.
