The art of shifting
Our team at Hybrid Racing has been making short shifters for over 15 years, it’s safe to say we have learned a few things along the way. Our latest generation of shifters is the sum of all the resources and knowledge we have collected over the years. These shifters incorporate modern manufacturing processes, countless hours of testing, and constant innovation to build upon the original design and arrive at the closest thing to shifting perfection.
Of course, what makes a good shifter is largely subjective. Adjustability was a major emphasis – allowing users to tailor their shifter to their liking. A 5mm Allen wrench allows the shift knob to be raised 2” taller, or .5” lower than stock (or anywhere in-between). Using the same Allen wrench, the knob can be offset closer to or further from the steering wheel.
This wouldn’t be a ‘short’ shifter without a reduced shift throw. The range of motion between gears can be reduced by 5% to 45% (below stock throw). Gate spacing (left-right shifter motion) is also adjustable, meaning that if you like short throws and wide gates, long throws, and narrow gates, or any other combination, you can tailor it to your preference.
To make a high-end product that will stand up to the abuse of track driving, no corners were cut. The links are made from 6061-T6 aluminum with stainless steel ball bearings for a quiet operation with no need for lubrication. The frame that the shifter sits on is constructed from steel, making it incredibly rigid, however, as is evident in the design, the topology has been optimized to take as much weight out as possible. The result is a tight shifter that inspires confidence as you row through the gears.
With its superior construction, adjustability, and unmatched testing and performance, our shifter has, once again, set the standard.
To get the most out of your shifter, Hybrid Racing Shifter Cables replace the OEM cables with improvements from end to end. Solid rod ends, permanently lubricated core, and aluminum end links give them a firmer, tighter feel over the OEM. This provides greater feedback to the driver for a more intimate connection with the transmission.
Other notable features include upgraded stainless steel swivel support tubes (OEM are plastic) known to break on the factory cables. All of the rod ends and mounting bushings are CNC machined 6061 aluminum, then anodized black before being laser etched with the Hybrid Racing logo for style.
What is included with these shifter cables?
The kit comes with two shifter cables; each shifter cable set includes two cotter pins, and clips for the shifter end. We also include new hardware for the shifter cable mounting plates that attach to the transmission bracket. You will reuse your OEM center bracket and cable seal.
