CLICK HERE to read about the changes between the Version 1 and Version 2 Hybrid Racing 8th Gen Civic Shifter.


After developing Shifter Cables, Shifter-Cable Bushings, Shifter-Base Bushings and the original Clutch Master Cylinder Upgrade for the 8th Gen Civic we realized there was only one piece left that needed our attention... the shifter! We continue to strive for ultimate performance and reliability so we took our original 06-11 Civic shifter assembly and sent it back to the drawing board. After countless hours of design, engineering and testing we completed a major overhaul of our shifter system. As a commitment to our customers, we are proud to offer a refreshed version of the most popular short shifter assembly for the 8th generation Honda Civic chassis!

Initial stages of the short shifter design involved culling through forums and talking to local 8th Gen Civic owners, looking for the Pros and Cons of the stock shifter as well as other short shifter upgrades that were available at the time. This wasn’t the first time we’d designed a shifter assembly, so there were already a lot of features we knew we wanted to include in this unit. 

Among those features was an unparalleled level of adjustability, so that each driver could tweak every aspect of the shifter to suit their own preference. Ultimately, what we developed was a durable, versatile short shifter that is simple enough to allow an affordable price, so you can have your race car without eating ramen noodles for a month. 

The shifter’s frame is constructed from TIG welded, powder coated, 1000 Series steel. The Dust-Gold anodized upper and lower rocker assemblies are now made of single pieces of Aerospace aluminum and feature custom sealed ball bearings to reduce friction. The new V2 shifter is 60% smoother than the original version requiring much less physical effort to row through gears. It is also lighter. 


Shift throw adjustment is achieved using two threaded cable attachment pins, meaning fine tweaks can be made to shift throw, allowing you to dial in the exact throw that suits your shifting style. Each attachment pin features a wear-resistant Delrin pivot cap for sturdy, quiet operation. New dual, zinc-plated extension springs replace the OEM style torsion centering spring for better-centering action and more direct feel. The front/back throw and left/right throw can be adjusted independently and figures for throw reduction are shown below:



Pre ’09 8th Gen Honda Civic Si:

-front/back adjustable from 80%-48% stock throw (20%-52% reduction)
-left/right adjustable from 83%-47% stock throw (17%-53% reduction)

’09+ 8th Gen Honda Civic Si:

-front/back adjustable from 87%-52% stock throw (17%-48% reduction)
-left/right adjustable from 90%-49% stock throw (10%-51% reduction)

Beyond simple throw reduction, we have built in a feature that many 8th Gen Civic owners have long desired but never had: shift knob height adjustment. Our simple single-bolt height adjustment design (borrowed from our popular k-swap shifters) allows the knob to be adjusted higher or lower than stock (within a 1.5″ total range) with only a 5mm allen wrench. Now you can tweak the shifter’s throw AND knob position independently until the shifter functions exactly the way you want it to.

This short shifter assembly is designed so that base bushings are not needed, meaning there’s no need to spend extra money on solid shifter base bushings. The shifter is compatible with OEM 8th Gen Civic cables, or our performance 8th Gen Civic cables. This shifter will work on both the base model R18 platform, as well as the Si’s K20 platform.

Customer Reviews Review This Product

  1. Huge Upgrade

    I had the gen 1 8th civic short shifter and it was fantastic. Great upgrade over stock. I have now upgraded to the gen 2 short shifter and it is miles better as far as quality goes. The gen 1 looks like a prototype compared to the gen 2. Every issue that I had with the gen 1 has been fixed and improved with the new gen 2. Hybrid racing's team has obviously been working hard at this design and it shows. I would recommend that anyone who is looking for a short shifter for their 8th gen civic to stop here and get this thing. It is fantastic. Review by TJ / (Posted on 11/18/2016)
  2. Excellent Product

    Received this short shifter for Christmas this year. Install took me about 1 hour and included just a very little bit of trimming with the dremel because I wanted to maximize the adjustment. I have been driving around with perma-grin now that it is installed. The throw reduction is excellent as is the height reduction I chose to go with. Shifts are fast and firm and the whole thing feels very solid. I am very happy with this shifter. Review by Oldnag / (Posted on 12/22/2015)
