Hi Everyone

So i installed my short shifter on my car last week [Myself-DIY]
and let me tell you that this is one beautiful piece of machinery.

A big thanks to RedRocket for getting these awesome shifters made.
Believe me_my shifter seems to have cut my gearchanges down
to almost half_very impressive for us [ahem] racing fraternity.. 8)

This is my short shifter :

Some pics during installation :

If you guys ever need something to assist you with racing gear-
changes_this would be it_I tested it on a private road and lets just
say that I was impressed with the little ol 160i 4AFE due to the
new short shifter installation.

Its perfect as an everyday driver [my opinion]_its just a little stiff at the moment due to the fact that its brand new and one has put it through good use for it to become a little loose_my gearchanges 'seem' more precise now.I am very happy with it... 8)

I think i got your last mail_what was it about again ?

Shots Hybrid!
You said the shifts between 1st and 2nd is much shorter-about 10cm.What about the distance between left and right,I mean between 1st and 3rd for instance.Is that shorter as well or is it only the back - forth distance thats shorter?

Hi Ewie_Please PM me your e-mail address_wanna discuss some-thing
with you_Well it seems like the entire shifter is shorter_what i can do
is measure the distances between my original shifter and the new
short shifter and post measurements to show the difference... 8)

I PM'ed you my e-mail adress.
There's more to the short shifter than just a shorter stick.I think I figured it out.The levers connecting to the cables need to be made longer.For that there need to be a spacer between the knuckle and the base plate.To cancel out that lift the stick is made shorter.

Hi Guys, I am looking for the clips for the rear[…]
