Initial review of Turn In Concepts Short Throw Shifter

After installation, I test drove the vehicle & returned with video footage of the TIC shifter installed. Then I went to Block Buster to exchange some movies last night & drove to work this morning. The TiC shifter has about a 30% reduction in throw & is MUCH more precise feeling through the gate than the stock unit. This improvement felt about as good as I remember the front shifter bushings did after their installation. But like the front shifter bushings, there is more feed back through gear shifter after doing this mod & it has a more notchy feel now. But thats not a bad thing, since it really lets you know for certain when you are completely in gear. I've been spending time at the track during the last 6 months & have noticed most racing shifters have this same characteristic with some you can actually hear the shifter going into gears. Should have no more problems with missing a gear....

As for the install, just follow the TiC directions for the front shifter bushing replacement. First remove the center piece of exhaust & set it aside,

Then drop the front of the exhaust down after pulling it loose from the hanger. You should now have enough clearance to easily remove the heat shield. Once you pull the heat shield out, drop down the front of the drive shaft so you can access the shifter.

You don't have to remove the entire shifter assy like when replacing the front shifter bushings. Instead just remove the rubber boot covering the under side of the actual shifter.

There will be two 8mm bolts holding a metal ring in place that keeps the shifter in the proper position. Once these two bolts & the metal ring are removed, you will need to work the shifter loose so it will slide out. Once it is out, remove the plastic gurdle that encases the white pivot ball of the stock shifter. You will need to install this on the TiC unit when going back together.

So, in your opinion is this a go? If so I have 90+ levers here that I can get set up with a intro buy today.
whoaaaa TiC is back? haven't heard any news from them for a year... at least, as far as the GC goes.
Yeah - that's our fault. We were trying to do too many things at once and the R&D over the long term was killing us as we weren't seeing any ROI on the R&D as we kept doing one proto after another with the various parts.

So, what we have done is take a step back, and do one at a time with the success of each determining if we continue with the R&D of the next. In other words, move back to taking baby steps, get one done and released and then move on to the next project.

This way we can get one done and out instead of running around in circles moving from one project to the next.

I have kid duty tonight so I'm out of here for now. Once I get him to bed I will come back into the shop and get these up on the site with the 2 week intro price.
Ok - they are up in our for sale area.
