you mean none exist except the one installed on every redline? It might not be that short, but certainly shorter than the quad coupe shifter.

it's short enough for me! i did research on some B&M shifters and some are not short throw, just shorter if u know what i mean

i dont think it would be that necessary and the whole reverse pull up thing might make it hard to do i dont know i dont think i would want one yet i like the look of the stock shifter

If you really wanted to, you could just whip out the hacksaw and a die to make the shaft shorter, but it would take out the reverse lock-out.

we could use some shifter bushings on this car...

also, the throw is short, and chopping the shifter WILL mess with the reverse lockout feature. if someone makes a shorter throw shifter for this car, we could probobly shift using just our middle finger

Shifter feels pretty good to me. I'll save my money for engine aftermarket parts instead. :D

i think the stock shift is fine. a few of my buddies have short shift kits installed in there mini cooper s's. Alot less throw distance, height is not an issue for me.\\

i do like the euro style reverse lock out with our cars.

fair enough, so i guess you guys agree to disagree with my short shift kit idea

i'm not against it, but i wouldn't think too many companies are going to try and improve it, you'd really have to make the throws short in order to make a difference
