This shifter is best explained by the Axial Flow website (see below)
"The Axialflow Engineering Shifter is the best made anywhere by anyone. Typical construction is 303 stainless steel shafts, machined in house on our modern CNC equipment. Attached components are of like materials. Polymer parts are typically CNC machined from DuPont Delrin, an engineering polymer. Pivot pins are hardened to 60 on the Rockwell C scale. The engineering is aimed at optimizing the geometry for the shortest shift practical for road driving. We concentrate on "feel" or "quality" of the movement. Typically there is a reduction in the height of the knob for a better ergonomic relationship with the driver. The factory has to make compromises for the driver who is really not the sports type. We cater to the small segment who are looking for a real relationship with their car. It is hard to express the accuracy of placement and if you track your car this means better times. All Axialflow Shifters are warranted for the life of the car to the original buyer. If it ever wears or fails we will fix or replace it free, no questions asked. All you pay is the S&H, same as when you bought it. While we can't express the feeling, our customers can. "
