No, it’s not off a fighter jet…
But we wouldn’t blame you for thinking so. This is a Hybrid Racing Shifter for the Honda Prelude and Accord. Similar to a part of the aerospace industry, it is made to be exceptionally strong while saving weight wherever possible. The links are made from 6061-T6 aluminum with stainless steel ball bearings for a quiet operation with no need for lubrication. The frame that it sits on is constructed from steel, making it incredibly rigid, however, as is evident in the design, the topology has been optimized to reduce weight. The result is a sturdy shifter that inspires confidence as you row through the gears.
When it comes to adjustability, our shifters truly shine. This shifter can reduce throw anywhere from 20% to 40% (below stock throw). Gate spacing (left-right shifter motion) can be reduced by up to 5%. Along with shifter feel, proper ergonomics are also a major emphasis. With just the turn of a single 5mm Allen wrench, you can adjust the position of your shift knob to be 10mm to 30mm taller than stock. With the same Allen wrench, you can rotate the shift knob position, bringing it closer to or further from the steering wheel. Every driver is different, so we allow them the flexibility to tailor their setup.
With its superior construction, adjustability, and unmatched testing and performance, our shifter has, once again, set the standard.
To get the most out of your shifter, Hybrid Racing Shifter Cables replace the OEM cables with improvements from end to end. Solid rod ends, permanently lubricated core, and aluminum end links give them a firmer, tighter feel over the OEM. This provides greater feedback to the driver for a more tactile connection with the transmission.
Other notable features include upgraded stainless steel swivel support tubes (OEM are plastic) known to break on the factory cables. All of the rod ends and mounting bushings are CNC machined 6061 aluminum, then anodized black before being laser etched with the Hybrid Racing logo for style.
What is included with these shifter cables?
The kit comes with two shifter cables; each set includes two cotter pins and clips for the shifter end. We also include new hardware for the shifter cable mounting plates that attach to the transmission bracket.
