I have them, theyíre good quality, definitely an upgrade from the stock cables, but I have no experience with the SSC cables. I think the challenge is finding someone that has experience with both. You probably canít go wrong either way. I installed the cables at the same time that I installed the LETSLA and the ShiftR111, the end result was excellent, but I canít separate out how much each contributed.

I have the InoKinetic cables and it was a big improvement over the OEM cables; My cables were binding pretty bad though. I can't give you a comparison since I don't have any experience with new OEM cables or the other cable set you mentioned. I also replaced the shift assembly with the InoKinetic one and added the LETSLA linkage at the transmission at the same time. My opinion is this combination gives very acceptable shift performance and feel now. Best regards...

I should qualify my "end result was excellent" comment, because the shift quality is still highly dependent on the transmission itself (the one component I didn't change). By watching the motion at the transmission while the shift lever was wiggled while in gear, I could tell that most or all of the remaining slop at the shifter was due to internal slop within the transmission.

I've driven both and I think the inokinetic cables were better, but like was just said above, it depends so much on the transmission and the cable routing that its harder to compare then you would think.

I went with the InoKinetic shifter and stock cables and feel shifting is good. Even after have car at track for 4 hours.
