  1. Trusted Product

    By Ron September 11, 2017

    I've had Kartboy short shifters and bushings on my last 3 cars. Can always trust the quality and I actually like that it's not adjustable. This shifter is as low as you can go and still move through the gate. The reverse lockout pin is a huge PITA. Take your time with install.

  2. Despite one small issue, this shifter/bushing combo is amazing.

    First and foremost, the Kartboy short throw and bushing combo feel fantastic compared to stock. The pieces are quality made. Shifts are quick and crisp, with virtually no slop. You get a little more drivetrain noise coming through the cabin, which doesn't bother me and probably won't for most others. The reason I marked down the install and quality, is because of how much the rear bushing was a pain to install. The barrels set in the material did not allow for proper bolt alignment. After a little while of frustration, I used a heat gun to heat up the bushing, which allowed me to flex it just enough to fit. But after the install, I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. Totally worth time spent, and for the price, it's a steal.
