Pistol-Grip Quarter Stick
The Hurst Pistol-Grip Quarter Stick Shifter (PN 3162001) is designed for a firm but comfortable, natural grip. Featuring the same qualities of the original Quarter Stick, this model includes controlled detent activation, a one-hand operated spring-loaded reverse lockout mechanism, and a neutral safety switch. The pistol-grip handle is CNC-machined from billet aluminum for increased strength, and features a snap-action switch that is ideal for operating a Hurst Roll/Control, nitrous system, or transbrake.
Applications: GM Powerglide automatic transmissions with an aluminum case and forward or reverse valvebody, GM TH250, 350, 400, and 375 automatic transmissions with a reverse valvebody

The Hurst V-Matic 3 (PN 3838530) is a front-exit-cable shifter designed for most three- and four-speed automatic transmissions.

The universal base allows for floor mounting and can be trimmed to custom fit any floor. The forward exit cable is designed for quick installation and accurate shifting, and the reverse lockout trigger feature meets NHRA and IHRA requirements. The shifter also includes a neutral safety switch, backup light switch, a lighted gear indicator, and brushed aluminum Hurst T-handle.

The Quarter Stick Automatic Shifter (PN 3160006) was designed to provide positive gear change control for street or racing applications. This shifter is designed for two- and three-speed automatic transmissions in forward valvebody shift patterns. Detent activation is controlled by a chrome-plated trigger contoured to fit comfortably in the driver's hand. Extremely compact and lightweight for tight-fitting installations, the Quarter Stick comes with a factory installed neutral safety switch (backup light switch is available separately), controlled gate stop activation for a positive feel, and a one-hand operated spring-loaded reverse-lockout mechanism. All necessary installation hardware is included along with a 5-foot shifter cable.
Applications: GM TH250, 350, 375, and 400 automatic transmissions with a forward valvebody

The TCI Fast-Gate (PN 616540) is a universal design, which allows it to be used in virtually any three- or four-speed application. The Fast-Gate also includes a stylish and durable injection-molded cover, a cable, and all the required hardware for a simple installation, so there is no need to buy extra accessory pieces. We liked it so much, we dropped one in PHR's Project Nova beneath a second-hand Dodge Neon console, where it reliably shifts cogs on our PerformaBuilt 700-R4.
Applications: fits most popular three- and four-speed GM, Chrysler, and Ford applications
Price: $148.75 (without T-handle)
If you've always envied Ferrari drivers with their fancy paddle shifters, TCI has a shifter just for you. Their paddle shifter (PN 301442) communicates wirelessly to the transmission control unit on modern four-, five-, and six-speed automatics with no signal interference, lag time, or disruption. It mounts to the backside of a five- or six-bolt steering wheel and comes with several spacers of varying width, allowing you to set the steering wheel location for personal preference.
Applications: designed to work with any automatic four-, five- or six-speed transmission, as well as the TCI 6x six-speed with EZ-TCU transmission controller
Street price: $636.97 (with display)
TCI's Outlaw Shifter (PN 616331) is one of our favorites—we put one through the wringer in PHR's Project Street Fighter '68 Chevelle, and it always kept our 496 big-block Chevy in the right gear while looking good. Constructed of billet aluminum, the Outlaw has an ergonomic pistol grip shifter and a black-anodized cover with an optional quick-release setup. It's also rugged enough to handle both street and race-duty, and complements the interior of any vehicle. It's NHRA/IHRA legal too.
Applications: GM Powerglide and most popular GM, Ford, and Chrysler three- and four-speed automatic transmissions
Price: $336.25 (forward three-speed with cover)
