How would it be detrimental to the gearbox? Just curious. Real question, not being sarcastic.

I don't mind the long throws into 2nd and 4th, especially with the wife sitting next to me in the sissy ;-) But in all other circumstances, this would be nice.

Higher chance of damaging the synchros by forcing shifts.

I would agree, you do run a higher risk of damaging the synchros. It is however up to the driver to produce more accurate shifts

Some things are not meant to be messed with:



They should have called it a gear bag instead of a gear box.

I watched the installation video on the RN link the other day when I got the email blast from RN.
I have to say, its a decent design and easy to install if you're looking for a short throw. I now know how to take out some of the play/slop in the neutral position and have a better idea of how the retaining springs work, so thanks for that RN.


That said, I have grown to like and accept my vintage-schoolbus-like shift throw on my R380.

Man these gearboxes do good to last 100k . Mine is crunchy and has 88k I've driven it like a dumptruck most of the time. I can't imagine what a short shifter would do to the syncros.
