Then almost anything will work, but I personally prefer gated shifters. Ratchet shifters don't tell me the gear I'm in unless I look at them while driving. Gated shifters have both a position feel and use a series of detent actuations, so I know where I'm at. While not so important for drag, street and road racing requires you know your gear without looking at anything. Unfortunately, I can't suggest any brand or model, as I've made (modified) mine from other shifters. do a search for gated shifters on the web. There's also a guy (on FleaBay sometimes) that makes racing gated horseshoe shifters that I've heard are robust and reasonably priced. I have not used one of his to give a recommendation, but may be worth a look.Just street driver and then track every one in a while. Right now it still is sitting in the barn with no shifter.
