    Shifting in Gt3

    My 1st to 2nd shifts are too slow.
    There seems to be a "2nd" notch to pass through to know that 2nd gear is finally nestled in place, which slows the shifting time.
    Is there a short shift kit that works well.
    I read in Excellence that Manthey Racing, the people who designed the Europipe has or is coming up with one.
    Does anyone else have any thoughts?

    Re: Shifting in Gt3

    2's and 3's have excellent boxes and do not need short shifts; in fact my last 2 was delivered w/ a B&M which i tossed immediately. if your car is new it takes a few 100 miles to smooth out. have your mech check your shifts and your box

    Watt,

    Why the switch from the GT2 to a CS? You always touted the qualities of the GT2 over the GT3. The 360 CS is just a ferrari version of the GT3 more or less, same characterists...

    Re: Shifting in Gt3

    The gearbox of the GT3 it is quite special in my opinion. It could be very very fast if you know how to shift gears probably but it could be also very disappointing if you are not someone used to change rapidly. Personally I am really happy with it, however I would like to try the short shifter that Porsche sells, I can't immagine how faster would be the shift then!
    This car, more I drive it, more I love it!

    1/2 way down the page. GT3's are great cars esp. on the track, but CS's have a unique aura, experience and presence

    The GT3 effectively already has a "short-shifter", because the shift levers on the gearbox are shorter than on the tt unit.
    The 2nd notch you can feel will be the synchroniser engaging.

    As watt implied, if you further shorten the shift lever throw by installing a "short-shifter" at the shift lever end of the linkage, the 2nd notch will become even more pronounced, because you will have to apply more force to overcome the resistance of the synchroniser.
