The description leaves a lot to be desired.... What is it meant to improve on?

As far as I can ascertain it's meant to make a better more positive shift,not faster. Hopefully it'll get rid of or at least help the 1st to 2nd crunch in the LT77 when cold.

Video shows installation.

All this appears to do is move the shifter pivot point upwards resulting in shorter shift lever movements. It's a classic trick used for decades by racers driving street cars that they have modified for racing or rallying.
Paddocks has listed them for a while now RN has them.

And I can't see how it would possibly rectify a slow synchro, I think the problem with the syncros was caused by them not being large enough to do the job with the difference in rotational mass and speed from 1st gear to 2nd...

Yip...the LT77 is indeed what it is.....at least it might 'help' with early morning cold crunches....but not for £92 in my case.

I just got an email from Rovers North saying they are carrying them. Zack - any one up there give it a test yet?

Edit - sorry I didn't read Rocky's post already stating the above.

there was a thread here about these a month or two ago when paddocks sent a blast email marketing them
Fits lt77 or r380. While it wont make your worn synchros work again it should make the shift throws shorter and the box feel much tighter

No, it would make difficult changes worse, not better.

It is a short shifter. It reduces the throw distance and increases the shift force.
