C's / TRD Hybrid Short Stroke Shifter (SW20)
Introducing our TRD / C's Hybrid shifter
A TRD shifter reproduction with upgraded features!
The best selling and most complete shifter lever kit for the sw20
You may ask. why and what is a hybrid... Here are some facts:
- The Original TRD shifter had some flaws on its design and is very notchy as reported by many users
- The TRD shifter was only good because of its lowered height compared to oem shifters but the throws were very bad and the bends were off
- People loved our C's shifter reproduction and was declared the best shifter ever made to date. But some was still requesting for a more shorter lever. (Lever height and not throw)
- So we took our best selling C's shifter and combined it with the TRD's height. With this, we have eliminated the "notchy" feel of the original TRD design.
- With all the proper bends and linkage positioning from our original C's design, then combined with the TRD length/height, we believe we have once again made the best shifter lever for the MR2 (sw20)
- The hybrid shifter also has a shorter stroke compared to the TRD. You will experience shorter throws compared to the original TRD. Giving you the best shifting experience ever.
