lol... you're willing dump 250 for something and dont exactly know what it does? too rich for me...EB_05_NISMO said:I'm interested, but might not be able to jump on board right away. Also I have a general idea, but what exactly does a short shifter do?
Hold a sharpened pencil with your thumb and pointer about 1" from the botton with the point on a piece of paper. Using your other hand, move the eraser back and forth so that you mark about 1" on the paper. Now slide your thumb and forefinger above the midway point on the pencil and move the eraser back and forth again overwriting the same 1" mark on the paper. Notice how much less you have to move the pencil back and forth when holding the pencil above the midway point -- that's a shorter "throw" of the shift knob which can result in quicker shifts with less effort. You achieve the same effect with your shifter by moving the pivot point higher.EB_05_NISMO said:I get the idea of a short shifter, but I was curious about the mechanical details and exactly how it works.
Yeah isnt that weird how everything on that shifter comes together as one part? I kept the one i ordered for you and I moved the "donut" where the shifter boot and the knob rest on down about 2" to where the top of the rubber filled cone is and welded it up. It looks great at that height. I hated the semi-truck long a$$ shifter, and im enjoying the shorter throws and the more positive feel. Oh yeah, I cant wait to get the pulley i ordered from you-your work looks top notch.wperdigon said:well the only reason why i am saying so high is because i have already begun the r & d process on this and it's looking like a whole new shifter will be needed and not just an adapter plate like i would prefer
