  • Making A Shifter

    I am thinking of making an extended shift "arm" that comes at a bend right next to the steering wheel. It used to be the shiet on Hondas when I raced. Looking for an example, but idea is to shift without having much time off the steering wheel. lol.

    Anyone done it?

      Kind of cool, I bet you could do it with just some simple welding. Tommy's metal stick is quite high :naughty:

        Lol, don't make fun of the shift pole, it's functional. :D

        This thread is going to get really perverted before the end.

                  That is very similar to what I did for my 911 on the track. I had an aftermarket shifter and put an extension on it to get it up close to the right hand on the wheel.

                  It worked very well. I am sure it wouldn't be too hard to do.

                      I have never seen the top of the stock shifter without the knob on it in the Miata. Is it threaded on the top?
