Hi guys,

Is the gear stick supposed to have such a long travel?

Feels like I have to move it a meter to get from 1st to 2nd gear!

Thanks.

The travel can be reduced by stiffening the gearbox extension mountings and shortening the gear lever. Will never be like a MX5 though.

I have the Barchetta as my main car and the gear throw is really short on that.

I like a short gear lever...how can I make it very short?

cut the lever to about 4" :lol:

not sure if there is a quick-shift kit available anywhere :confused:

can't remember what mine is like, haven't sat in it since october last year :cry:

even if i did though, it wouldn't help, gearbox is still in the shed :cheese:

I reckon the change will be quite vague.

It's a long linkage from the shed to the side of the house.:lol:
