    Thread: Dimentions needed!!!! vw motorsport shifter.

    1. 02-13-2005 11:39 PM #36
      What about making one without the base. That way if someone like myself can handle the base it would save on time and materials and lower final price. I would be up for that.

      I think the base is the easiest part to make!!

      If you don't want a base it just makes it easier for me I'll lower the price slightly if you don't want the base. Pictures in 2 weeks! started work today.

      That shifter looks so similar to those of a rally car. Is the ease of shifting anything like what is seen on the tele?

      With something like that are you just bliping it to and fro. Or, is the amount of travel minimal between stock?

      its all up to you, if you want it shorter you can have it shorter. If you want closer to stock you can have that too. The shifter that i'm making will have a slightly shorter throw then stock ar the longest throw setting.

      I'm looking forward to the next update

      Are you still going to release dimensions of the shifter? I hope so!

      I'm a nice guy, so for the guys that have the ability to make their own shifter i will release the dimensions and possibly even a CAD file too. Just as long as my file isn't used to sell more of the shifters

      I understand your concern.

      Yeah, now that I see it; if I were you I wouldn't release the CAD file for at least a few months... or sell it for a reasonable amount since you worked on it.

      releasing the CAD files would be amazing...

      not that i plan on building one, my short shift is enough for me, but it's nice to have CAD goodies... and access to NC equipment

      Never got a chance to drive a car with one of these,...any critics out there?

      My kit is pretty damn sweet. Lots of R&D because nothing out there exists like it. Ill be installing one in my 020 rocco in a few weeks. Got it worked out for the rabbit already.

      Great diagram!! 1.BillyT-did you have problems with the selector arm/cable hitting your seat bolster? I have been attempting to find the best way to install mine, and you're right-it's not easy! Mine is a mk2 and my seat bolster is in the way. Great pics! I think I saw your old posts regarding your install. I think if my stock tower was about 1/2" taller it would work fine, what did you find?

    15. 02-21-2005 03:15 AM #50
      Yup, the stock tower is too short. The bottom of the lever, where the cable attaches hits the center tunnel. But when you make the tower taller, it makes it harder to have a solid cable stay for that main cable. I ended up making a bracket that was out of 1/2 aluminum with set screws to hold thew cable in it. That bracket will take all of the abuse from shifting, so it needs to be strong. And since mine was so tall, I had to be that much stronger.

      No problems with the that arm hitting the seat bolster, though. MK4 is a bit wider than the MK2, and since mine was so much taller, that might be why.

      I was a man... I was a good man... Selling insurance...

    16. 02-21-2005 03:54 AM #51
      Was your bracket thinner than 1/2" where the housing stopped? Did you use the stock c clip type retainer to hold your cable in your new bracket? How much taller was your new bracket? 1 3/4" roughly? I'm guessing that because you made the cable stop even at the bottom of the base for your selector cable. Thanks so much for those pics!!! I think I will finally get mine in this month, I'm still gonna have bolster issues though. I'm gonna machine an alu square spacer, the same size as #20, 1 3/4" thick to space mine up.

      as of right now we're only going to make the shifter for cable shift cars, but if they sell good then a rod type shifter will be made too. We already have a CAD file for it too.


    26. 03-22-2005 07:11 PM #61
      mate, is there any chance of getting hold of that cad file, my uncle is a fabricator and will be able 2 knock it up for me. You see importing from america will cost me a mint otherwise... ill let u know if i have any problems then 2

      let me know if you release the cad file ill start on a rod shifter version for you... ive got too much free time and nothing to do and you obviously have the tools needed for this work.

    30. 04-06-2005 07:52 PM #65
      I had 2 pieces machined for mine(stock VWMS unit) so as to look and work like the muts nuts on my mkII. Hope it works! Finally looking to have this bitch in after show n go this weekend. I'll post pics next week if all goes well

      just thought of something while changing a shifter cable. why not just get a stock cable shift box and mount it ontop of the tunnel instead of below? BAM! raised shfiter.

      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      any pics of this...

      im well up for making up a rod shift one

      That could probably be made to work, but you still have to deal with rubber and plastic bushings, loose factory tolerances (), etc....

      yea, rubber bushings and all, its still a little closer to you for easier shifting.

      i may have to try this a little later on
