My buddy had some kind of saw. We just lined it up and cut it down like 2" I think

Cool. 2 inches makes a big difference. How did you get the new knob to stay in place?

Cutting the shifter in a versa would make you much slower on a road course. 2" is a lot lower to move your right hand. Even a short throw shifter for a versa if made, would likely be stock length

There's no noticeable difference when I cut it. And you cant really make this car any slower anyway.hope someone will make a short throw for this car but most likely wont because its almost pointless

I emailed TWM today about if they are interested in making one, a member on cubelife said TWM is not interested but I thought it was worth a shot. If the short shifter fits the Cube and the Versa. They have quite a group of people to market for one.

Here is some info I found a cube forum -

short shift kit - Nissan Cube Car Forums

Here is another thread on NICO from racingline that fell through -

Racingline Short Shift Kit : Versa Engine, Drivetrain and Tuning

I know on my 200SX (B14) a NX, Maxima, and Altima shifter fits that car [similar years]. I would like to see if any other cars would be comparable with the Cube/Versa shifter since they are cable shifters and fwd.

Alright guys, I just PM'd the Vendor of racingline over at Nico about finishing up the prototype they started. I will let everyone know what I hear from both places. Stay tuned.

I very much want to get a short shifter made for this car! My next step is to contact B&M shifters or other manufacturers that can produce one for us. We may need to get enough people interested in buying one before a company will produce one. If I can get a company interested in making one I will start a thread about it. This maybe our only chance guys.
