They aren't *hard* to setup as such, but with my combo if it was out a little bit it would miss the 1st-2nd change on redline shifts. I also run a ceramic clutch that doesn't allow any slip, so at full RPM after a hard launch it sticks a little bit and the sequential can't force the tranny into second where the standard shifter could.
I also found city driving a bit of a pain in the ass not being able to skip gears when pulling up to lights. But for track/drag racing it is bloody awesome I will admit that.
The Hurst indy is a vertical gate shifter, so it is a quite different to a standard shifter. if you head to a parts store and get them to show one to you, you'll see what i mean.
