0A8-Shift Short Shifter kit

Article number: 0A8Low-Shift
Availability: In stock

This 4H-TECH 0A8-Shift is especialy designed for VAG related cars which run a 0A8 transmission like the VW Polo 1.8 GTi and 2.0 WRC and Audi S1.  The 0A8-type transmissions are very strong and can cope with high engine torques. The only problem is the original gear shift throw which is too long. This can now be shortened with our 0A8-Shift short shifter system.

By fitting this shift linkage you will have a gear throw shortening of about 35%.
The factory gear stick model, look and height remain unchanged. The short shifter system will be fitted on top of the gearbox where the shift linkage is located. Gear changes are much quicker and precise.

One of the must have modifications to your Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda or Seat!

Das Teil ist ein "Must Have" für alle Fahrzeuge mit dem 0A8 - Getriebe!!! Ich war anfangs sehr Skeptisch ob sich die Investition lohnt, hab es nach einem sehr netten Gespräch mit einem der Mitarbeiter dann doch bestellt. Der Unterschied zur Serie ist der absolute Wahnsinn !!! Endlich lässt sich der Wagen vernünftig Schalten!!! ( Polo 6c GTI )
Vielen Dank!!!
