    First and foremost, huge thanks to David at Hybrid Racing for shipping this beauty of their brand new Short Throw Shifter. Looks and feels amazing! Paired it up with Hybrid's Maxim shift knob, absolutely in love with the quality :love:

    Installation wasn't there worst. Can easily be done with a pair of hands. In my opinion, the hardest part was carefully trying to take apart the center console, so tedious!

    Comparing the OEM Shifter vs the Hybrid Racing Shifter, OEM sucks! :thumbsdown: Cant even compare the quality.
    Shifting into gear now is so precise!

    You have 2 positions to choose from for you liking:
    Position 1 - Short but can get even shorter!
    Position 2 - Being the shortest throw

    I went with Position 2, as I want the shortest throw possible. Me, as the driver, it feels more like I'm in control (if that makes any sense). It provides such a great engagement for the driver.

    I would have gotten an Acuity shifter to stay with the rest of the Acuity I have, but 10% off the Hybrid shifter it's cheaper by $100.

    Curious to hear feedback from someone who has used both the 1 and 2 positions. Sometimes a short shifter can be too short and you can get lost in the gears in high stress / fast paced shifting such as on track....a missed shift is always slower than a longer proper shift after all
