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

    1. 04-12-2006 10:36 AM #151
      Side to side cable arm needs to be longer. If you want to reduce the side to side throw, make the arm longer and just add more holes for the option of reducing the throw. Same goes for the main lever. Put 3 holes in it for those that want a shorter throw.

      Our new one comes in today... can't wait

      Billy, do you have a measurement from the pivot center point to the side to side cable arm lenght on your old one?
      Would a longer distance between the front/back cable attachment at the bottom of the shifter to it's pivot point make the throw longer or shorter?

      I can measure it later today, but untill then, this is the best I can do:

      Just to give you an idea of it's length.
      By moving the pivot point of the shifter rod up, you reduce the throw. By moving it down, you increase the throw. So a longer distance from where the cable attaches to the pivot point would decrease the shift throw.

      Awesome, thanks for the information.
      How much cable travel is required for changing gears? What is the maxium the cable ends need to move on the transmission? That will be all the information i need. I can then determine how much throw is required in my design.

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

      I realise that, and I wasn't trying to take away from your post.
      The picture that the dimensions were referring to had not been posted, and I wanted to have a side to side comparison, and also to compare to your drawing.

      It's good to see this thread picking up again [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      On the new one, it is exact 2.5 inches from the pivot to the cable attachment point.
      Ya know, when yiou first look at these things, it's hard to remeber why you spend 700 bucks on them, but then you start to see all the little details, like the reverse lock out on the new one is a bit more complicated than the VWMS unit... anyway, I guess it is all those little details that make it worth it in the end. Unless one of you has a serious machine shop hook up, I think you may find that these things will cost a bit more than you anticipate to make.

      I just wanted to let you know that I got my shifter from Sorg Motorsport today.
      Great build quality and the throw is even ajustable...all that for 200 Euros (242 USD).

      Got pictures of it? That is a great deal, how much did it cost shipped? I could not find it on the Sorg site.

      Billy, the machining will be free just need to pay for material.
      *edit* Just found pictures of the one on the sorg site. Looks damn nice for 199 euros.
      Would you mind dimensioning the hell out of it for us people that would like to build our own?

      not sure what math I used on the last page, but the shifter I got from Bildon is the Sorg one... and I paid way way way too much money for it... awesome. oh well. What's done is done. Also, They went up 20 bucks on the price of the thing to 699 with cables... man...
      Jason, you pretty much have it spot on in that new cad drawing(which looks pretty sick). As long as the main pivot points are close, you will be okay. Like I said, the tough part will be finding all of the little bits to make the reverse lock out, or you could simplify it and make it pretty easy.

      I have measured the total cable movement at the transmission and my design will be able to provide enough movement. I am going to get started on the CNC machining program and hopefully have a prototype this month.
      I am not sure what to do with the reverse lockout. The design of the Sorg one and the VWMS looks pretty simple. Basically a spring loaded pin. My biggest concern is actually the hardware to assemble it. Not sure what is used for the pivot point bolts.

      ......My brother made a prototype out of cardboard today. He has a machine at work that can cut cardboard out of a AutoCad drawing so the cardboard one he made looks exactly like my drawing up there. I honestly can not believe how small these things are. They look much bigger in pictures.

      it just looks like you need to build your own tower for it.

      I'm also making this type of gearshifter. But i'm making mine from carbon fiber
      I've almost finished making all the moulds (all aluminium moulds as they give the best surface finish).
      I'm going to use a 20mm carbon fiber tube for the shift lever. All the bearings are sealed cartridge type which are press fitted into pieces of titanium that have been moulded into the carbon fiber.
      If anyone's interested i'll post some pic's when i'm finished.

      Holy balls! I'm interested, i'm interested-post pics when you can. Sounds sick!

      what shift cables are/will you guys using/use? because the stock ones won't fit and VW-M doesn't have them anymore

    21. 05-05-2006 12:31 PM #171
      I think Bildon was selling B&M cables with their shifters.

    22. 05-05-2006 02:32 PM #172
      any one else contact sorg-motorsports? i emailed earlier but no reply yet.
