Short Shifter

Date: June 19th, 2004
Cost: $18
Time: 1 hour


A short shifter is designed to decrease the range of motion required for each shift. In theory, that allows your shifts to be faster. In reality, it makes little difference outside of racing.


The biggest reason I ended up getting a short shifter was actually because the TRD shifter and boot were designed for a shorter shifter. With the standard one, a portion of the metal shifter showed. Now that I am used to the shorter shifter, other shifters often feel excessively large.
