    Are there any discount codes? Was thinking of doing a big order but was either looking for a code or waiting for an ebay sitewide sale again.

    We'll be running 5% off site-wide (including kits) and our usual free shipping over $100 (in the USA only) over BF/CM weekend if you can bear to wait. ~Russ

    That was our hope, but it's looking tight. Ran a test batch recently and are fine tuning our molds. My guess is we will miss the BF/CM weekend for that launch though, unfortunately.

    The full adjustable shifter probably won't be available on your website for order by then either I will assume.

    Hey, in your video you mentioned for a brief second at 5:50 that you did a "shifter fix", and pointed to what looked like two purple zip ties on your cable connector sleeve. What happened there?

    It is for people who have installed short shift adapters that extend the shifter arm. Those adapters alter the geometry within the factory shifter assembly that can result in a click noise/feel when shifting into the even gears. @powow66 has a video describing a simple fix using zip ties:

    Hey man!

    Thanks again for the mention and link above Baldheadracing, you're quick to respond! :thumbsup:

    Quick overview of the "fix". There is nothing wrong mechanically with the shifter. The "fix" is basically strategically placed zip-ties to resolve an annoying clunk sound that occurs on some 10th gens upon installing any short shifter extender/adapter. The additional length of these aftermarket extenders reduce throw, but the oem design of a black plastic bushing on the gear selector cable secures the cable loosely on the oem shifter assembly. Short throw extenders/adapters in general will impose a slight angle on the shifter cable when shifting (again, this angle is not harmful to the car), and as a result push up slightly on that plastic bushing in a way that it "clunks" or "clicks" at the attachment point on the shifter. I'm actually currently working on revising the "fix" video description to provide a better explanation for those who want to learn more about this.
