I have been stalking Core and Creative Steel for over a YEAR for their short throws to come back in stock. They keep saying eventually and I am starting to think that means never...... Are there ANY other options for a V2 short-throw shifter?

Unfortunately not. It's such a niche market that it's not worth the R&D. Hopefully they start production again, I hate how sloppy the stock shifter is.

Creative is working on a new design. I just got an email today from them that it's close to production, they are just waiting on materials. Per Creative:

"The biggest design difference you will notice, is the new style will return to neutral. But for us the new style will be less labor intensive, no welding, and all parts will be made in house, so no out sourcing and relying on say laser parts.


Glad you liked the first style, we hope to knock this one out of the ball park too!"

Core is actually still selling the short shifter. Looks like they did a batch of 5. As of this morning 2 are left. I ordered one last week. Will be here today. Once creative comes out with there new version I will swap and sell core shifter.

Wasted no time installing mines. Took it for a spin. Definitely more notchy than the creative steel shifter. I'm sure it will loosen up. Probably won't switch it out. It's actually the perfect height.

How did the install go? Is it difficult?

Not at all. Once you remove the console, it's a 15 minute job. The most tedious part is getting the 4.bolts out from the base of the shifter. You'll know what I'm talking about when you get to it.

That carbon in your steering wheel is growing on me.

I've known some wankers who can't get their knob off!
