If they can make it happen, I'm in. Specially with tax season coming up I'm sure a few other people here might be able to jump in.

If we're talking about the 6spd manual, The versa, cube, and 2.0 sentra and 1.6 juke all have 6spds, But the part numbers for the transmissions and shifters are all different.

Versa 101-EM32C

Sentra 101-ZT50A

Juke 101-1KG0A

Cube 108-1FD0A

What I would look into is if its possible to make the shifter from one of the 2.5 sentras work in our cars and then buy a readily available kit for that.

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.

New short shifter Kit

I tried contacting Racingline as I live in Vancouver but never got through.

Was searching the Internets for Renault Clio Short shifter (which we share the same transmission) and Came across this Company

https://www.short-shifters.com/tl4-shift.html

I have Just install this TL4 short shifter kit.. What a Difference.

Their Website has a listing for TL4N short shifter kit for our cars but it did not fit My Canadian Model MR18 6 speed.

If you want to see pictures can someone give me suggestion for photo hosting site as I'm not paying Photo bucket 400

dollars to Post and I don't use Facebook.

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.
