Re: Question about shifter kits.
I haven't installed my CE actuator yet, but I can start from a dead stop easily with the shift kit.
The only problem you would face is if AZ has stipulations about an auto trans. The shift kit turns it into a manual so you'd be up a creek. But it would be doable to gear to only do a max of 20 I think. Would likely need to be custom gears.
misteright has a good point. Just use a 50T or higher. You'll be able to start from a dead stop, especially with Jim's kit, and you'll max out pretty low.
