50% short shifter too stiff.

I just put in a Understeer 50% reduction SSK and the shift effort is too high.
I did the weighted selector rod mod at the same time but it doesn't seem to help. I'm going to change my tranny fluid to Redline and maybe get a weighted shift knob. Anybody else have any experience with this kit? I,ve heard it gets less notchy after a few weeks.

When I installed my short shifter it was pretty stiff for a few weeks.
After the wear in period the shifts are still stiff and precise.

I have the understeer kit (MZ3 lever) in the 96 M3. It is absolute shit to shift ... I hate it (it came with the car). Way too notchy, and hard to shift. In the race car, I have a B&M shifter (the race version). That one is SO nice compared to the Understeer kit, and it cost about $110. I'll be getting one of those for the sterrt car very soon.

I have the SSK kit also. I have not installed it yet. It sounds like I should sell it and get something else?

anyone have anything good to say about it?

Shifts are getting better. I think part of the problem is that i was overshooting the shifts because they are so short. I'll report back in a couple of weeks to update.

I had that setup, I had to get a UUC ERK cup to make things better. Even with the ZM3 shifter it's much smoother now, not so notchy

I have the B&M kit in my car and it was extremely notchy at first but has since smoothed out....kinda want to dump it though as it has a lot of play in it

I don't think UUC sells it anymore, it's pretty much just a pivot relocator. The main pivot get moved higher so the linkage is straight and not at an odd angle.
