    I have the JBS stage 1 and 2 kit fitted. I think very much like the Forge jobbie ( but released before) And it makes for much easier shifting if trying to get a move on .
    The only problem i ( well not me the mrs ) had was reverse is closer so feels a bit funny the first time you use it.
    Other than that a much sportier feel with no real diffrence in the effort needed.

    Hello!

    Well at the moment we have actually stopped making them, this was down to Forge making their adjustable ones. Same price and saved 30-45min of one of my guys time!

    So in short we can offer the Forge short shifters

    Forge short shifter for the throw adjustment (up and down) costs 74.64
    Forge short shifter for the gate adjustmane (side to side) costs 59.41

    We offer fitting it would be 57.50 per item but if you have both fitted at the same time it will be 57.50 for labour.

    Regards
    Mike

    One shortens the throw of the up/down gearstick movement and the other shortens the side-to-side throw.

    Mat20VT and S3BLX

    If both of your cars have the gear linkage set up incorrect then when fitting these parts and linkage is set correctly then it could fix the problem. But you could have a problem with the syncro. Without really seeing the car it is difficult to say.

    Dani B19

    Most people actually find that the side to side movement is fairly close and they only shorten the up and down movement.

    Personally, I have driven cars with both items fitted and the one fitted and I prefer to leave the gate as it is and just shorten the throw. But this is all down to personal preference.

    Glad it helped a little on the cruching - the set up might have been a little out on yours.

    Indeed, can't see it helping a weak syncro. Shorter throw increases the mechanical effort at the gearbox for the same amount of effort at the stick.

    If anything, the crunch should get worse.
