A Short Shifter is a linkage on the gearbox which shortens the gear throw (shift distance to cover when shifting) from one gear to the next gear.
Not to confuse with actualy shortening the lenght of the gear stick itselve. (which other companies supply). The factory gear stick will always kept untouched. Our shorteners will only shorten the gear throw distance.
With a 4H-TECH shortening kit, you will have a shortened gear shift throw by aprox. 40 till 50%. (denpending on car model and type)
The shortened gear shifts are sportier and more precise than original. You are now able to shift much faster from one gear to the other gear. Which makes much better driving performance possible by saving time between gear changes. It drives alsmost like a sequential gearbox. ``Klick-klack``. All gears follow each other directly.
Location of the short shifter: Original 4H-TECH quality. Development and production by 4H-TECH. Made in the Netherlands. We have designed our linkages in a very refined way to make sure that no heavier movements occur, they are very easy to operate.
Mounting: The original shift linkage on top or side of the gearbox must be exchanged with this shortened 4H-TECH version. No re-adjustments are required. Installation time approx 20 - 40 minutes. (depending on car model and type) Easy to do it yourself, you do not need special tools.
The following 2 movies will illustrate how the difference in shifting is in real:
