    Our new multi-stage molds and inserts for the new version of the esco are currently in-production. Hoping to have the first run in about a month, but we're at the mercy of our machine shop. Also, we are going to start previewing the shifters in a couple of weeks. :) Good parts take time to refine and produce. ~russ

    No problem Russ, take your time, it would be better to install when it’s cooler out lol

    To the first question, Yes, plus it will be compatible with all 10th gen's with a 6mt.
    To the second question, dear god I'm quitting if it's not out way before then. haha. Shooting for releasing this year, just working through a few final tests before we start production. :)

    Keep an eye on our IG not this weekend but next. We should have a sneak peak video up with some tester videos going up on Youtube in following weeks. Shooting for launching in time for christmas, but it will be tight. We're in the middle of some final, very abusive testing.

    We've actually been doing some test injections on our new multi-stage molds and are refining the process. I can't wait to release these. So much work went into them, and they're really a nice does of refinement on top of an already nice knob. The weight is up, and the purple and teal are looking gooood. :) Sneak peaks soon!

    Dang so we’re looking at a December release date for this new shifter? :(

    Either way I’m still getting it with that teal shift knob lol

    Almost the weekend and looking forward to some additional info.

    Been wondering if the full shifter will have a part like the Alta shifter cable lockdown.

    Can't wait to show you guys the video! Looks like we are about on-schedule for the preview this weekend.

    We took a somewhat different approach that we believe is more robust. Have a look this weekend. :)
