Interesting on the part numbers. The prototype that Racingline was working on wasnt a shifter... it was a piece that bolts to the outside of the transmission case. I am not 100% sure how cable shifters work on fwd cars because I have never owned one until now. I am use to the shift rods that all you change is the pivot point of the shifter itself.
Here is a picture of Racingline's prototype - It doesnt look like its very complicated to make... I dont understand what the hold up is after all this time.
A true short shifter changes mechanical linkage between the shifter and transmission to speed up shifts, the external levers get shorter. Can't do it on cable shifters or trans with internal linkage like most are now.
Actually you can on shifter but the design cost of doing it is why you won't find one on a Versa, the cost is too high to make it worth it, you'll never sell them all.
A shorter STICK makes shifts faster but the stick shortened means increased force needed as you have lost leverage there, what length does.
I used to do all that stuff many many years ago on drag cars.
Hello guys. So, I just bought a Nissan Tiida and the car radio is in Japanese. Managed to change a few menu settings to English but the rest of the menu is still in Japanese. Is there like a software I can use to change everything to English? Even the audio (the lady who speaks to give...

The car is a 2015 Versa 4 door.
I don't know what tranny is in it, but it's automatic.
Can someone tell me the characteristic of this tranny?
I noticed when driving it, the RPM's were high before it shifted and at times it feels like it slipped between shifts.
My son got an extended warranty...
Or something else?
At 100k miles I had my son's 2011 Versa Hatchback's plugs changed out. 20k later he's getting an occasional Service Engine Soon (P0301) indication. Had a local trusted mechanic do it for me last time but this time I figured I'd tackle this myself. Between the many posts I've...
