    Default The Quickshift kit: Fitted

    Further to comments about problems fitting the Quickshift (not just this one, the shop bought ones are the same), here's what I did with the BS prototype:

    Straight Bracket (note the position of the top bolt).
    #

    Angled Bracket.


    Both fitted.


    Here's the problem, the linkage rod hits the surrounding metalwork, 1st gear won't engage properly.


    3rd gear...does engage, just, but hits the red bodywork.


    5th gear is ok.


    Here you can see where the linkage is hitting the bodywork, the white line shows where paint has been scraped.


    The white line is a useful mark, telling you what needs to be removed, I started filing in the middle.



    Keep checking if 1st goes into gear.


    All the filing took around 15-20mins with regular checks for progress until it looked like this, my finger is about 20mm wide.


    Now it works...1st.


    2nd.


    3rd.


    4th.


    5th

    Hi all!

    I haven't fitted my kits yet. So I thought I make a photo with both kits.

    The left one is the kit from Japan, the right one I have received today...


    They are very equal!!!

    One of them will be fitted into my Q4, the other one into my GTV...


    I wish you all a "short shift" and a lot of fun!


    Best regards, Martin

    I have encountered the same problem. I've solved it by pushing the iron sheet up, so that the controls have enough space.

    The problem is that with the excitement I forgot to take pictures, ainsssss, sorry.

    Hi boys

    Very nice news for me!

    I'm glad because you already made quickshifts!

    I made mine by myself but a little bit late, I moved to Dubai now and progress with my car are stopped...

    Regards
    No replacement for displacement!

    Hi Santino, I thought you had been quiet recently. Good luck with everything in Dubai, can't imagine the heat and dust out there in the summer would suit the car, or you either.
