so if you do not get better times with the shift kit y bother. i know it is better for the auto because it uses less clutch but other then that what other advantages is there oh yeah and getting wheel spin in you gear changes :roll:


because you do get better times. you just get way better times with a properly built one


I've yet to see any information that anyone with a stock BTR get's better times with a shift kit.

Feel free to prove me wrong and post comparable track times below.

a shift kit would be nice =D and does a better job then the normal one. i just wish my car would run properly before i even tried it. but yeah i read the thread on how to make it and stuff and some people got better results.....all comes down to driver in the end.

phong =P~
