So i want to know you guys opinions about the short throw shifters. TRD or URD? which is better?
Ahh - yet another of the eternal debates. You'll get a lot of arguments from both sides but let me sum it up the major points for you.
Pro: Nice because it replaces the entire shifter so it's more solid.
Dealer won't give you any crap about it if they find it.
Con: It's more expensive.
Pro: MUCH more affordable.
Tried and true alternative to the TRD (I've ran mine for 2 years without any problem).
Con: You could possibly run into an issue if the dealer finds it on there --- but I've personally never heard of this happening.
You're really gonna have to go with your gut on the purchase. I've kinda learned that you're either a TRD-guy and you buy all their stuff, or you aren't and you just buy what you want. Nothing wrong with either... :top: Good luck on the purchase!
Here is two good thread that should help you out :top:
thanx alot u guys. quite helpful.
When I bitched about the trans to my dealer the shifter is the first thing they went after to try to deny my claim (and it was a TRD part).
The TRD feels much shorter and notchy then the URD.
True... But if worst come to worst and you have a tranny issue with the URD in it only takes 20 - 30 mins to take out. Ups and downs with both, just like every other similar after market part that is manufactured by different company's
ahh its the famous TRD vs URD again... here is what you do bro!! ask someone if you can shortly drive one of the XR's one with a TRD and one with a URD..and you make your own judgement!!!:top:
but K2 basically summed it up!!:biggrin:
If you ever have a tranny problem and you have the URD, just take it off. It's really easy.
Wonder if they would give me crap if I need to do that. The sealant I use is black and theirs is red. SO would they say I messed it up
They won't even notice :top:
yea. yall all got valid points but i think i will go with trd. i have a friend here in houston that has a 95 celica, hes on 6gc.net (6 gen celica), and he got the trd short throw for his celica and i drove it earlier and it wat pretty fukn sick. i didnt realize that the urd didnt come with a new stick and knob like the trd. i want the lower stick height. thanx guys
WELL , as "MR.TRD ":laugh: Says: you get what you pay for:top::biggrin:
Unless you lock your transmission up while driving it and you have to get it towed to the dealer. if I had the URD I would get it towed to my house first, remove it, then pay for it to be towed again to the dealer. May cost you 100$ extra or so to do it this way but its better then them not warrantying it.
They stopped giving me **** when I told them the dealer installed the TRD shifter. :laugh:
Both are really good products. Since you want a shorter shift AND a shorter shifter arm...go with TRD. The URD actually raises the shifter arm because all it is is a spacer plate
what about a B&M?
B&M is pretty good. Heard nothing but good things. Michael (wshsbears) had the URD and switched to the B&M. You could tell he was happy as hell with it on the phone
They are both good, just depends on how deep your pockets are...:top:
not very deep. but pocket depth is also a matter ov how long you wana wait to save up a cretain amount ov money for a certain product.
I prefer the URD for the SS. They have a proven shorter throw then the TRD....meaning quicker shifts. Also Gadget has them on sale right now...really good deal!!:top:
Where is this proven?
:laugh: ... He strikes again. You people should know better than to post baseless "facts" up here, especially against TRD :rolleyez:
