Howdy

Have currently purchased a Short shifter for my S15 6 speed and just looking at it the build quality doesn't seem to be there but enough about that

Quick question before i bother even fitting it what exactly center's the car back to Neutral , most shifters in other vehicles have some sort of spring set up to recentre to Neutral ( center)

This does not have any mechanism at all surprised it has a spring for Reverse actually

Shifter isnt a C's racing i wish its a (cube speed)

Sorry but short shifters are a waste of money and time, there is no advantage to them, besides wearing out synchros and selector forks/arms. Doesn't make car any quicker.

I had the C's shifter in my S15 and have driven many without.
The C's shifter gave a nicer more precise feel with little to no slack while in gear or neutral.
The original owner in japan installed it otherwise i wouldn't of bothered. C's mention that the 0-400m time was 0.6 seconds faster on a lightly tuned s15.
If you don't shift like a retard your box should be fine but I.

A short shifter will not reduce 1/4 mile time by 0.6 second. Advertising bullshit, luckily to make 0.1 second difference..

Get gktech shifter springs and new plastic bush from Nissan/taarks. Will be a better upgrade than a short shifter
