Cool short throw shifter, anybody find a good one?

Has anyone found a short throw shifter which is a bolt on for the D90?

There are plenty out there for other 4x4s..

I hope it goes without saying that he means for a manual transmission, and yeah the stock shifter on an LT77/R380 is really long but when your are LHD you could either just cut and re-die it or also put a bend in if needed, not sure why you would get a whole new shifter, not like there is anything to one.

I don't think any of the truck guys have ever looked into it. You might have better luck looking into some of the British street car forums. Somebody with an SD-1 or older TVR might have done something along those lines.

Out of curiosity, why looking to shorten the throw? Given how bad the syncros get over time, you may need the leverage.

Oh, the R380 was designed for Jaguar so perhaps their shifter would be short-throw in comparison.

I think it would be cool if it was longer. Trucker style with a beer tap for a handle......

ha

The funny thing is that I just might do it

Don't forget, you WILL be judged by which beer tap you use.
I will make sure you get banned if I see Coors, Bud, Miller, Pabst, etc.....
It must be British. and no sneaking in with some Irish brew! Being half-Irish I would find that insulting as well.

thats a good note Hans, it had not crossed my mind. I was just curius if any of the racing versions of our trucks had a modified stick in it. it goes without saying how a short throw shifter makes life a bit easier. ..I knew this was going to raise some eyebrows

The beer handle with be a hard choice for me, but "SAM ADAMS" the glass version with sharp broken edges facing down of course...we are civilized
