how about we all think about a method to do such a shifter for the rod assembly?
what i'm trying to say, is keep the orriginal rods from the tranny to the cockpit, and do an assembly that bolts on, and adjust the throw from the inside.
i've seen some of these shifters on rally mk2s we have at local hill climb races, 020 gearboxes, the rods from the tranny were just like the ones usrt sells, but the inside shifter was similar to vwms.

thank you all for the great pictures and dimensions on these nice pieces of engineering :)

Its not that I can't figure out the rod shift part of the shifters. My thing is I have never driven anything with a rod shift. If I had access to one and could mess around with it, I could make the rod shift part no problem...its just not a priority for me at this point

How did you design the lock out for reverse. I am working on a project for school that has internal parts machined for the internals of the trans that I would like to run with the CAE/VWMS shifter

Very nice shifter! I would love to learn more about how you made it, and what your new design is, especially if its a more compact design that would be lighter and takes up less space. Cheers to you for your hard work.

Hey,

New design is more compact, shifter is 50 mm closer to steering wheel, shifting ratio is the same. Total weight is about 1200 g. It is completely made from aluminium. If somebody is interested in buying, I can offer it:)

Yes,more info please. Im running the cae shifter now,but how are you routing the cables with that setup? It seems to be missing the threaded rod on the side also.
Please enlighten me on your setup.....it is very nice looking!!

Thanx Geoff.

back from the dead. Does anyone still have a few of these laying around? possibly plans for another run? i have a 1990 corrado g60 build and would love to have a motorsport shifter included. although i dont want to spend the $1200+ for the CAE model.

I made a thread a few years ago and uploaded all the CAD files on there. If you need a shifter , I have 2 or 3 black ones and possibly 4 of the silver ones.
The beauty with CAE is you get an all in package , so no need to make anything.
