short shifter

Postby Zoran » Fri Oct 16, 2009 2:34 pm

Anybody use or know these two short shifter sets?

What quality is these two? What is the difference(s) between these two and the TRD brand short shifter set? Just the name? Or the quality?
Anybody suggests one of these for a normal daily use?

Thanks for the help!

to be honest they look as if there both the same, just sold by different people on ebay they would by them in 10's off of the manufacturer of them

they look as if they are machined out of 1 piece of solid bar, so they may be quite heavy compared to your standard gear stick as this is hollow in construction, the mount which bolts in to allow the gear stick to locate looks all right.

I have the TRD 1 fitted in mine and I love it. I always felt that you seemed to fish about for the gears rather than a short positive gear change, they can take a bit of getting used to at first but once you've driven with it for a while you soon get used to it. it does take a bit more effort to change gear as you have reduced the amount of movement so a bit more force is required
The B&M short shifters are a bit harder still from what I have heard

there's no reason why the's on ebay won't work as long as the parts are well made

The look like the Waffenschmiede one ACNZA did a group buy on last year.
Bit hit n miss with the build quality & noisy. When we emailed the guy about the issues we had he didn't reply to us. I sold mine in the the end as I got sick of the rattle it made & got a TRD which is far superior IMO.

Have a read here on what people thought of them & make up your own mind...

Ops I taught it was auto. I have a short shifter, not sure of the brand. I love mine find it very hard to drive a car without it. The only thing about it, theres a little road noise from it, not sure why. But most of the noise comes from the gear stick knob!!!!!!!!!!! I am looking for a leather knob and I am hoping this will cure it, but other wise I am very happy with mine.

Thank you everyone for your help!
I think, if I change my standard shifter, I will choose a TRD one. Anyone know a cheap source?

I don't think TRD and cheap go together in the same sentence
