Our team at MITA Motorsports designed this part to shorten the shifting lever’s height.
Reducing the shift knob lever’s height shortens the shifter shaft’s travel, also called “throw”. Reducing the distance that the driver’s hand needs to move between gears results in more precise shifting and a sportier feeling.
A shorter shift lever can provide several benefits, including:
- Faster shifting: A shorter shift lever allows for quicker and more precise gear changes, which can help to improve the car’s overall performance and responsiveness.
- Weight reduction: Shorter shift levers are typically made from lighter materials, which can help to reduce the car’s overall weight and improve its handling and acceleration.
- Better feel: Shorter shift levers can provide a more direct and precise feel when shifting gears, which can help the driver to have a better sense of control over the car.
- Increased clearance: A shorter shift lever can help to increase the amount of clearance between the driver’s hand and other components in the car, such as the steering wheel or center console.
- Aesthetics: Some people prefer the look of a shorter shift lever and consider it a cosmetic upgrade.
It’s important to note that a shorter shift lever can also make the gear changes feel more stiff, which can be uncomfortable for some drivers. Additionally, the shorter shift lever may not be suitable for all drivers with different body sizes and comfort preferences.
The Right Hand Drive NA1 NSX-Rs came with a short shift lever, and anyone owning an Right Hand Drive standard NSX could upgrade the shift lever of their cars. By redesigning this part, now every Left Hand Drive NSX user in the world can enjoy the benefits of this part. Even better, this part is compatible with the NA1 NSX-R shift knob, so if you own an Left Hand Drive NSX, now you can also upgrade your shift knob without having to make further modifications.
MITA Motorsports short shift lever is made of a single piece of steel instead of the OEM two-piece Honda lever.
Included is an adapter piece allows installing standard shift knobs. The adapter can also be used for Right Hand Drive NSX with NSX-R shift levers, which gives you the possibility of going back to original any time you want.
