Quick Shifter

Recommended Posts

Has anybody had this done to their rolla, i am thinking of doing this however i am not actually sure how this works (that is how technical i am!) Does the shifter work like the rally cars where you just push the lever forward to go up a gear and pull the lever backwards to go down a gear?

I am also looking at getting a lighter flywheel as well!

any thoughts?

I'm pretty sure the quickshift kit keeps the gear selections as they are, but due to a shorter stick and something else in the mechanics somewhere it all shaves time off between shifts, hence being called a quickshift kit.

Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I know on an old car I had someone decided to 'bodge' a quickshift kit, took a hacksaw to the gearstick and called it job done.

Thanks nrgizerbunny and Wicker, wasn't sure what the set up was.

I will make sure my mate does the work when i get this as i can trust him to not botch the job.

cheers again.

The Rally lever is a sequential Gearbox, you can get them from companies like Quaife, only thing is your looking at £7,000! :P

not sure who it was but someone on here got the tte quickshift and another , one of these had a very short throw (roughly60% shorter) but was a lot more stiff, hence why he decided to get the other that had a short throw (roughly 30/40%) but was a lot easier to select gears, cant remember which way round it was but im sure a search will find the thread. also one was a lot easier to fit than the other

Good Point Daz, there is a difference between the TRD & TTE ones, i am sure MiniMarc has got one or the other, shame he is in Oz i think.

ive driven some sequential box cars, Clio for example, and i just couldnt get used to it.

Much prefer the paddle style or the slightly differently layed out style in the formula audi single seater...

I believe the TRD quickshift was easiest to fit and the better version.

The TTE one was harder to fit and too stiff

IIRC

:thumbsup:

You're correct on both counts there, I do have the TRD shifter and I am in Oz! :P

As has already been mentioned, the TRD one is much easier to fit (if it takes you longer that 30 minutes start to finish I would be extremely surprised. The TRD one comes as a completely assembled unit whereas the TTE one requires you to remove specific parts from the original housing and replace it with the new bits. I know a couple of people have actually damaged the assemblt trying to fit the TTE one because of that.
