I'm picking up a VWMS shifter in a few weeks, and then a friend of mine with a cnc machine is going to make a few copies. I'll supply all the dimensions for you if you'd like, and will also offer a copy of the unit for a price. I'm shooting for half the price of the real thing. we'll see what happens. I'll make a feeler post after the first shifter is made.
The shifter is coming along, (snip) as of right now we're only going to make the shifter for cable shift cars, but if they sell good then a rod type shifter will be made too. We already have a CAD file for it too.
Quote, originally posted by MaestroG60 » I just wanted to let you know that I got my shifter from Sorg Motorsport today.
Great build quality and the throw is even ajustable...all that for 200 Euros (242 USD).
Got pictures of it? That is a great deal, how much did it cost shipped? I could not find it on the Sorg site.
Billy, the machining will be free just need to pay for material.
*edit* Just found pictures of the one on the sorg site. Looks damn nice for 199 euros.
Would you mind dimensioning the hell out of it for us people that would like to build our own?

There are links to pictures, but a search through their subfolders at http://www.ryanrupp.com/ didn't find anything.based on the picture, and the dimensions provided:
hopefully we can continue to dimension these out and the other pieces as well! if we get everything dimensioned out, i can host the CAD file for any and everyone... at this point though, all you get is a .gif.

This website still shows a picture of their shifter, but nothing in that section of the page.. Grabbed these images though:
A lot of the links to websites in Europe are now dead-ends, the sites simply don't exist anymore."Item # 191.711.001.ZSB:
is temporarily out of stock or discontinued.
...or this item is a special order item.
Please review the item description."
It's a shame how lazy people are, so theyd rather be given an answer, then tryin to figure it out themselves :facepalm:It's sad to see just how stingy VW folks have become with their knowledge in the last 10-15 years. :facepalm:
What has been the title of this thread from the very first post? :facepalm: It's what everyone who clicked the thread link in the last 7 years has been looking for!If im not mistaken,no one asked for any dimensions.
Yes I understand that very well . I know of a few people that took original motorsport shifters and had them copied as well. The shifter market is extremely Niche and I am just annoyed of having to read 13 pages and no publications of solidwork files so I want to do it for the community.Issam, as you know, there is alot more to these shifters than the machining. I had to spec out all the hardware, and make sure all the pieces worked together as an assembly. I have ALOT of time dedicated to this project, and I was selling them for a super fair price, compared to the overpriced VWMS and other high dollar shifters.
In a thread titled ''Dimensions needed!!! vw motorsport shifter'' I would expect dimensions to be present before 445 odd posts, and 15 odd pages - thats all.It's a shame how lazy people are, so theyd rather be given an answer, then tryin to figure it out themselves :facepalm:
If im not mistaken,no one asked for any dimensions. If Brian G. or anyone else asks for a dimension, I would give it to them.
No one gave me anything to help make my shifters. All the blueprints and dimensions I found were in this post, and not a single print had everything dimensioned. So your big post of all those links isn't gonna get anyone all the way to the finish line.... now what shall you do???? Use your brain??? Oh no! That would be terrible!!
I did the research on my own, and figured it out. Now if you want to be spoonfed and are too lazy to do some math or do the work yourself, then go ahead and take the easy way out and ask.
Hell, Brian G. is such an outstanding machinist, and everyone swings on his nuts, so I don't even understand why he would have to ask for a dimension, he could probably cast one and people would ride his nuts more...
So, if you are too lazy, or just can't think for yourself, gladly send me an IM and I'll walk you through how to measure. I will gladly give you dimensions, just ask:thumbup:
