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

    1. 02-21-2005 02:54 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.

      The shifter is coming along, my brothers wife just had twins a few minutes ago and the twins have been setting us back.

      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.

      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.

      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"

      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

      Ohh and i wanted to say that my rod shifter setup still uses the factory rod that runs through the tunnel, but makes a huge improvement because the extra stress that a short shifter normally places on the stock plastic bushings is now placed on the shifter lever and its metal bushings. The rod shifter will be set permanently at a 50% reduction in throw and will be bolt in. Should take no more then 20 minutes to install.
