    i'm trying to decide between the Art Carr and the Lokars..

    what Lokars are peeps running? not sure which one i should be looking at.. the Carrs gate function is obvious, but i'd like to know how the Lokars work...

    the tranny mount

    or the tail mount

    i'm thinking the tranny mount looks like the best choice but have no idea if its just a straight shift with little detents or if it has any gated type action to it.. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    right now i'm leaning towards the AC, mainly cuz i dont know the details on the Lokars.. thanks for any info guys... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i was thinking about getting one, i don;t think they are gated, the only thing preventing shifting is the detent spring in the tranny.

    They do have some sort of a gate. Definately not a gated shifter like an Art Carr, but I dont think you would have any problems with it. They do have a gated feel. I know most of the Twisted Customs buggies have the Lokars, so they cant suck that hard.

    Edit: BTW, go for the tranny mount, it is by far the best one for our app.

    it looks like it wont work with a trasnfercase behind the tranny, look at where the shifter bolts onto the case... the same plaace that the transfercase bolts on. that plate would have to go in between the two...
