Just a quick take on the basic operation of a triple shifter. I got my thoughts mixed up explaining the shifting sequence(s), but hopefully it makes sense. At the time the car was produced "Hurst Lightning Rods" shifter package was presented exclusively in the 83' & 84' Hurst/Olds; however they can be retro fitted to other vehicles. I also did a rolling start (30mph) to 85+, and then a 0-60.
