Default Cobb Adjustable Short Throw & Bushings: 06 WRX TR

I was confused between the Kartboy and Cobb Short Throw Kit but I decided to go with Cobb for some reasons.

I have just installed the Cobb adjustable short throw and Cobb front and rear bushings on my WRX TR 06. The installation was not that complicated. The Cobb products are of high quality: they are worth the money paid. Shifting gears now is just so quick, easy and feels lots of fun.

I just wanted to share my personal opinion. I am not saying Kartboy is not as good as Cobb (I don't know) but have never tried their kit before.

You couldn't tell the difference between a user adjustable short shifter and kartboy's shifter?

Glad you made the choice you did and you like it. That being said this REVIEW is going to the right spot.

I've been running my cobb shifter for 6 years or so. Love it, can't imagine going back.

I've got the Cobb shifter on my 2012 wrx. Freaking love it. Of course during install, I forgot to compensate for the new knob that I would be installing in a few days, so now it's crazy low. The weighted knob isn't very beneficial, since there is no leverage for the weight to throw into gear lol. Gotta adjust that. Either way, I would never look back on this purchase. Cobb is great, as usual.

Rookie question- do the shifters actually make the travel/distance in between gears any closer??

From pictures of ppls setups it look like they consider a short throw shifter to just be a lower shift knob??


I've got a stock shifter with Cobb front and rear bushings and a Lathewerks knob now. I like the "positive" feel of the new bushings. Can't really tell a difference in weight of the knob but shorter distance between gears would be cool! Drove a Miata once and the gears were super close. Thanks!

Yes this shifter makes the shift throw shorter between gears.

Unlike other shifters the cobb shifter is double adjustable, so you can adjust the throw and the height of the shifter. Just google a picture of the shifter and youll be able to see what im talking about
