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

    1. 01-21-2006 06:52 PM #126
      I cant speak for 1.8t rabbit. But after building mine I can tell you that after getting the tooling (if you dont have it allready), setting up the machines, programming, building a working prototype, and working the bugs out of it. That its not worth it to sell 2 or 3 of these things here or there. And I wouldnt want to build 10, 20, or 30 of these things to sit on the $350 in cables, rodends, bearings, bushings, hardware, and aluminum it costs to build each one.
      I dont know how much he intended to sell em for. But if someone were to produce them. As small as the market is for them I would'nt expect them being much, if any cheaper than what bildon is selling them for.

      Word-save up your pennies kids! USRT looks like they have rod linkage shifters available or in the works, even though they have pictures of mine on their site

      Finally SOME FRESH NEWS from Poland [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      THE SHIFTER IS READY
      It's made of stainless steel. Total costs: ~70$ (but ... don't forget POLAND)
      So here are some photos from ... the moment it become HARDer



      ...and a pict from the "tests" (sorry for the mess but the car is prepared for rollcage setup so the carpet had to be removed - will be back in may)


      OK - as I said the Shifter is ready - it's my ... edition [Apsik Edition] so it's very first polish shifter prototype and works fine with standard cables!!!
      I'm gonna finish mounting it (it's 2 AM) and then take some sleep. Pict will be soon
      ///sorry my english - I' a bit tired///

      Finally the Shifter is mounted and connected. Wasn't so easy but now it's working just perfect
      It looks like that:


      as you can see on the driver side I've used longer bolt, so that gave me the possibility to lock the 5th gear - this is perfect for 1/4mile races (4 gears only - R & 5th locked)

      Looks good man [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] I would definitely order one if you will do a "mass" production
      are the stock cables to short to mount them to the shifter without that (sorry ) ugly adjusters?
      i've written already at icq but i guess you hadn't it online

    7. 04-05-2006 03:31 PM #132
      too bad nobody will share the plans. i certainly have no plans to make them for resale, but id love to try to build one!
      if someone has dimensional info, i will put it into cad and develop any necessary drawings

    8. 04-05-2006 04:52 PM #133
      so who wants to make me one for my race project?

      Sorg Motorsport GMBH
      presents aluminum shifter for cable transmissions
      Golf 02A
      Polo 6N2
      Lupo GTI
      Offered from us now for Euros 199,00
      including VAT tax, shipping extra

      Comes out to 485 usd. 80 bucks for cables each puts you at 645. Bildon sells this exact shifter for 679 with cables, plus US shipping(Interntional freight is included in the price). Sounds about right.
      Should have ours next week.

      I just bought some punch and flares to recreate the holes in the stock VWMS tower. Should be a good waste of money

    11. 04-07-2006 03:41 PM #136
      dimensions, please

    12. 04-07-2006 09:33 PM #137
      Dimensions for the punch and flares? I got a 1" and a 1.5". My tower will be roughly twice as tall as the stock tower pictured below. So a 1" hole towards the top just like stock and then a 1.5" towards the bottom. These give the curved lip just like the stock holes [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

    13. 04-08-2006 11:56 AM #138
      Nice... I need to pick up a couple of those too.
      what gauge are you making your tower out of? I was thinking a max of 16(thickest our break can cut), and maybe even using 18 or 20 to keep wweight down. Probably 18, though. The punches add alot of structural rigidity, so maybe even 20 would work.

      I'm gonna make mine out of 1/8" aluminum. Mines gonna be about 6" high and also the selctor cable stop is gonna be welded to the side of the tower so it will have to be some what strong. Yeah the flares will add a bit too. Those damn things were pricey! Cant wait to see some pics of yours this time around Billy! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] What car?

      yeah, I just priced them... looking at 200 bucks for both dies... damn. I am gonna try some of the loca fab guys to see if they can punch them for me, though.
      Shifter is going in a Mk2 VRT, 630 wheel so far...

      I mentioned the dimension of the pivot point to ball end as about 3" in a previous post on this thread. I'll get all in mm's for you. You should label all the dimensions you need on that pic so there is no confusion.
      Billy-what seat are you gonna run in the mk2? Keeping my stock seats is important to me so thats when I ran into all the bolster clearance issues. Yeah I just sucked it up and paid the $200 cause I got tired of searching. Also if I do something wrong I can make another myself. You know you can just buy the flares without punch for about $35 each?! You gotta drill that big hole though.

      We are running Evo 2s. The shifter is gonna be up pretty high in our car too. SHouldn't have much issue with the bolster.
      Where can I get the flares at? I found a cheap set of punches for 20 bucks at Harbor Freight:

      errm, all important things are marked in different colours?! or is it just me who can see the colored lines?

      based on the picture, and the dimensions provided:



      hopefully we can continue to dimension these out and the other pieces as well! if we get everything dimensioned out, i can host the CAD file for any and everyone... at this point though, all you get is a .gif.

      and the point of posting that again was what? that information is already dimensioned out in the drawings above...

      Can anyone download this 3d AutoCad file and see if what I created is accurate enough to work?

      i havent played with 3d in autocad, only proE. but i downloaded it and spun it around a bit and it looks pretty good. based on the pictures though, the bracket for mounting the shifter is a bit beefier near the rear section where the mounting bolt would be as well as at the tops of the towers for the side motion limiters.
      it might be of benefit to mimick these characteristics, as there is a lot of repetetive strain on that area with every shift... definitely looking good so far [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
