Short shift / How to improve gear shift


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Sorry if this is going over old ground, but I've read a number of threads on various forums but have never got to a definitive answer to the following questions:

1 - Does anyone make a Short shift kit for the Evora?

2 - How can I improve the Gear shift on the car, make it quicker, shorten the travel?

3 - Can I shorten the travel on the clutch pedal?

Hopped into my old EP3 Type R last night which has a Short shift kit on it, straight from driving my Evora. I nearly pushed the Clutch pedal through the floor. the travel was so short and light, and just flew through the gears hardly had to move my hand to make the changes.

Got out wishing I could put the Civic gear box in the Evora.

Presumably I can't do that so what can I do to improve the Evora box? Car is a 59 plate Launch Edition.

Thanks in advance.

There is nothing available that you can buy, but it is an easy do-it-yourself mod - see here: http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f170/short-throw-shifter-123965/

 

I made the mod over a year ago and am very happy with it.

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

The 2012+ shift assembly (cables and shifter) can be retrofitted to any Evora. They come from Lotus.
