Short Shift

Yesterday I received my short shift lever from EDxr8EBGT.

It took me (a non mechanical person) about 30 minutes to fit this.

Took the car out for a run and couldn't be happier.
It is so much fun too drive now.

I know JamieXR6 also got one and I think he is also happy with the results.

A big thumbs up to Barry.

I'm glad to hear that you are as happy with it as much as I am. Now you know what I meant when I said that I couldn't believe how much of a difference it makes.

Well worth the money.

You should send EDxr8EBGT a PM and he can give you all the details.

A T5 is a T5, it will fit any of them. Have a word with EDxr8EBGT he has them to suit many models.

Do you have just a shortened selector or was it a complete short shift kit? As in has your gearbox throw been reduced or just the length of the gear selecting arm?

It's a shortened shaft. I hope to mate the short shatft with a short-throw shifter.

Mark,

If you haven't seen them, have a look at mine at the next meeting.

I've been thinking of getting the short shifter as well but I think that with both of these fitted, the throw might seem too short.

Short throw is fine when you have room to move for quick throws but in traffic it might become a pain.

XR8XTC - It's just a shorter lever but due to it's size it does reduced the throw considerably. You are looking at around $375 for a short shift kit as opposed to around $60 for the shorter lever.

I've got an SVO shifter in mine, and thinking of getting a shorter stick also. The shifter made a huge difference, so much better to drive. Just want to see how much difference the adding the stick to it will make...
