    Default Quick shifters

    Question with the Saab, in manual form there was a custom metal collar you could fit that acted like the RS shift in a Mk2 Escort in reducing lever travel distances and speeding up the process etc etc.

    Is there anything that can be done to the Vectra to do like a quickshift conversion?

    Shorten the gear stick

    Part joke, part true..... My Westfield uses a type 9 gearbox from an old Ford Sierra, the gearstick is so short that you can change gear by moving just your thumb.

    Thanks kind of answers the question but we can't do that due to the reverse lock out,,, Pity I think the Vectra mechanism would benefit being short throw

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/QUICK-SHIFT-RA...item255a93c154 The Vec defo needs a short shifter. My old Cavalier SRI had a much shorter change than my Vec SRI. The throw is way to long imo.
    I may well invest in one of these.
