Frequently Asked Questions

What does a short shifter do?
A short shifter decreases the throw of each gear change, meaning the lever doesn’t have to be moved as far to engage the next gear. It also tightens the feeling of the shift action, making it more enjoyable and consistent – ideal for both road and track use alike.

Can a short shifter kit improve my car’s performance?
In a roundabout way, yes. Because they allow for quicker gearchanges, acceleration can be improved – and so too can lap times. Having said that, the main benefit of installing one is the improvement it makes to the feel of the shifter.

How easy is it to install a Mazda MX-5 short shifter?
The installation process isn’t overly complex and can be done entirely from inside the car – you won’t need to work underneath the car or remove the gearbox. If you need any guidance, please don’t hesitate to ask us!
