      Did you miss this, just a few inches above?

      It does exactly what you mention, and it costs almost 600 Euro.

      Actually, its the shifter that costs 600 Euro. However, they will only sell this piece if you buy the shifter. The website says they will send you the plans for it so you can build it yourself if you are not buying their shifter.
      The other German company referenced above also does a conversion, but were not as kind as to post a picture of it. Might be worth contacting them though.

      I e-mailed them asking for plans and they said they do not give out the plans? Have you been able to get the plans? if so can you post them?

      I have seen a motorsport style shifter made for an 020 linkage type... it was pretty cool looking.
      The guy who made it his name is spa on here. Cool guy [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Bringing this back so that maybe those who have installed the shifters can help out.
      Id like to install this in my corrado, but personally, I dont like where it would be positioned height wise. So id like to bring it down.
      My idea is the following. Using the stock shifter box, but just the box, is mount the VWR/MS shifter to that. Thus it would still install from under the car and keep maybe a stock shifter height. Can this work?
      In my head, I dont see why it wouldnt, with the new cables following the same path as the stock ones (up against the top of the exhaust tunnel). All that seems necessary is for each cable to have a guide so that it stays in a given position. I got the idea from the JD Engineering Corrado.

      Look at the shifter picture (appears to be a VWMS item) and my idea seems to be a likely explanation for its low placement, when compared to other VWs.
      So can it work?

      talk to the guys at USRT. They have come up with a setup to work for 020. Prolly will have one for the 02A too.

      Is that the tunnel that the shifter is mounted to?- How much clearance is there between the exhaust and tunnel on a Corrado? You're gonna need about 3" down for the shifter cable and about 5.5" down for the selector cable. I imagine the selector cable would be alright cause it could mount to the side of the tunnel. The best thing to do is just get one and go for it. Stuff works out on paper and then you try something and a new issue arrises. I imagine heat would be a big factor, who knows what else. You could put on a baby tower or stack a riser plate on for minimal height gains if needed. You'll be able to make something work though [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      OK guys - some pict from my project
      ... just prepared the car for the Shifter
      -taken out...

      -nice whole...

      -prepared for action...

      -nice wholes

      -some fabrication of stock cables

      -are in

      -and @ the gearbox

      My shifter will be able to short the "shift" from ~10% to ~60%. The drawings are only for myself (based on VWMS shifter, but still lot's of differences!!), Ptototype will be made in about 10days, it will be made if stainless steal & polished.

      Can some one talk about why I would want this over my current VR6 short shifter setup? Does it have a short CRISP shift? More info on that topic would be good to hear.
      I still need to read the 4 pages of this post though.

      No real performance gain, but you can position it where you want. Mine is gonna have a 6.6" tower so it's gonna be up by the wheel kinda.

    16. 01-11-2006 02:27 PM #117
      Can I fit this to any cable transmission, G4 or TT? The price is really tempting.

    17. 01-11-2006 05:28 PM #118
      so, does anyone have measurements or a CAD file? i'm a student, so i can't even pay 199€ to sorg for that shifter. but i can use all machines in the company i worked before studying. so i could finish my car in the next few weeks [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

    18. 01-14-2006 12:23 PM #119
      no measurements or a cad file but there arent any real crtitical dimentions. The distance between the shifter pivot point and the cable attachment point is only going to change the throw of the shifter so just make it how you want.
      I ended up making my own. Here's a crappy cell phone shot. I didnt add a reverse lockout yet. All done on a bridgeport and manual lathe. the base is cnc plasma cut out of 1/8" steel. I dont have access to a tig so Im just going to mig weld the base into the car. B&M superduty race cables You'll need one 4' and one 5' cable if you mount it in the stock location.

      I'm with milfhunter-no real science here. As I mentioned above, on my stock vwms unit, from pivot to ball end on the lever is about 3". Has anyone ever created a cad file based on an existing VWMS unit? I've got a custom tower in the works right now. Should be lovely BTW milfhunter, that is badass-nice work.

      Think of it like a hinge,

      Pivot is like - Drehgelenk (hopefully)

      By pivot, I meant the point at where the lever is attached to the rest of the shifter.

    24. 01-21-2006 05:38 PM #125
      I agree. I mentioned that same thing when i brought this
      back. I even emailed one guy to find out what happened
      and he never replied.[go figure]
