    Short-throw shifter in cold climates

    Does anyone have any experience with the short throw shifter in colder climates?

    I tend to drive my P-car from April thru November here in Boston and it's often 30 - 35 F (0 - 3 C) when I start out in the mornings in the earlier and later months. Will the short-throw be too difficult to shift at those temps?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Re: Short-throw shifter in cold climates

    You have less leverage with the short throw so if things get sticky with the cables you'd feel it more. Not sure how much the gearbox contributes to cold-weather friction.

    Don't know much about the cables but I'm sure Porsche makes them fail-safe for near-arctic use. I mean that's gotta be a lubrication technology that's readily available today. I dunno.

    i am up in the great white north and have used my 997s w/ shortshifter (dealer aftermarket installed) for one entire winter..a little tighter/more mechanical like feeling especially on the morning startups and once in a while I do entirely miss 1st gear but soon smooths out....no biggy!
    enjoy your p- car in the cold months!!!
