To help with the throw issue, I added one of these spec miata shift knobs to my MGW. It's perfect now, IMHO.

Those are easy to make, just 7/8 aluminum rod and slide bike grip on it :)
Could also use throttle side grip which is little bigger in diameter.

You could also put a clutch lever on it to confuse the competition.
Win a few races with it and they will start popping up around the paddock. lol.

I made one for my s2000 few years back but did not like it. I prefer bigger and more round like mustang has. I find it easier to shift.
