Hmmm, i always thought a proper quickshift actually involved modifying the linkages of the gear box, or at least, the way the gear stick connects to the linkages :shock:


Me too, but these days people aren't looking for REAL performance! Just something that sounds or looks cool. Hence a 'short shifter' becoming known as a 'quick shifter'? It 'sounds' better...hehe

the one from SVO includes different linkages, and I would assume would result in a shorter throw.
