Default STI short shifter v/s Rev Lab for RS!

Fellas,

RS OWNERS!!....I truly recommend the REV-LAB
shortshifter...Comparing the STI one, just the name and it's not that short, .........Rev-Lab is a canadian company....Shout out to Harvey & Arthur!!!!

My 2 cents..

Feng

I think ours is a little bit shorter throw, and we also were the first to use either stainless or titanium pivot balls, unlike the earlier kartboys that had a tendency to crack the plastic pivot ball when installing it... It's also not welded, so zero chance of breaking a weld on a hard shift (not that it happens often, but I've heard stories..)

Just tooting my own horn, "toot-toot"

Glad you guys like it!

Thanks! I actually have a Kartboy one right now, but I have heard a lot of goods about the RevLab SS, so I am considering that I may want to change it

REV-Lab one is Awsome.... it is so short that feels like the Miata or RX7 shifters.. you can shift with your wrist. give Arthur@rev-lab a shot and he can probably work out something. btw, the rev-lab shifter is made of titanium, aluminum and stainless steel, and has two versions which is a hardcore version and a very hardcore version. Good stuff for it's price. I also recommand the Sway bar links and also teh pullys.... both works great!!!! check out www.rev-lab.com:monkey:

Sandy Lam,

Took me a while to decide even though i had the STI one on for a bit but did not like it. Sold it, back to stock for a while and installed my Rev-lab on last week .... will not look back....Yup it is well-designed .... Go for it!!!

I've been looking at getting a short-shift kit as well and if I can support a Canadian company in the process that's a huge bonus. One question I have for people who have this kit is do you use the stock bushings or are you using an aftermarket bushing?

Thanks!

I have the Rev-Lab with stock bushings. This is a great shifter and a good mod. Props to Rev-Lab for their quality products.

I also have the Rev short shifter with stock bushing. I like it alot. The construction of it is very nice compaired to other short shifter that is just a metal rod.

I have the STi shifter. It's a complete mechanism, not just the shifter arm. It's really nice and you have a great feel of it going into gear. The shift distance is shortened slightly but not too much and the amount of forge required is just great.

IMHO if you're shifting your short shifter hard enough to crack the weld then someone with my welding skill welded it or you're using _WAY_ too much force. You could glue an egg to my shifter and it wouldn't ever break.

Thanks everybody for your replies! I'll do a bit more research on different brands and decide later.
