Short Throw Shifter by DDMWorks
The complete kit consists of a new shifter mechanism, upper and lower adapters and required hardware to mount in the car. The entire installation can be completed from inside the vehicle and does not require you to go under the vehicle at all.
Once installed the new shifter makes the shifts much more direct and reduces the throw of the shifter from 4" for stock to an amazing 2.6" with the short throw shifter installed.
Installation takes about 30 minutes and is reversible.

I highly recommend this kit. The change is dramatic and feel is much improved. One suggestion: use a 3/8 hex bit socket and ratchet to loosen the allen screw securing the shift knob. Thread locker requires more than a 90 d allen wrench. GREAT product and easy install...read the instructions several times.Reviewed by: Dave Stephenson from Jackson, Tn. on 11/28/2015
The Solstice GXP shifting was always sloppy because you lose too much RPMs in between gears making the car wobble if you are slow on the draw. It was always an effort to move the shifter with my entire arm to shift faster. Now I can shift faster and a whole lot quicker with a flick of the wrist. It makes shifting crisp also reminding me of driving my Miata. There is a louder than stock mechanical thunk coming from underneath though when shifting with the engine off, but that noise is absent when the engine is on. The short shifter makes the engine drive faster because you can engage the transmission quicker and truly make it drive sportier.Reviewed by: Conrad Montilla from San Antonio. on 7/16/2015
Finally took the time to install- took about 40 min. as I was cleaning up old parts as I went. Two things: another Solstice owner got in and thought I had dropped in a new tranny!; this swap takes the car to a whole new level of sporty with crisp gear changes. It's a wonder the factories don't do this out of the gate.Reviewed by: John Thomas from Sevierville, TN. on 6/25/2015
Q: Can I use the stock shifter ball with this short shifter? I want the install to look totally stock. Will it affect the trow distance? Thanks, Paul
Q: Does this kit come with the leather or fabric boot to go around the shift stem? Also, does it come with the top ball/knob (the part you actually hold on to when shifting)? Thank you.
Q: I see the short shifter is not currently available, is that an item made to order or just on backorder? Just want to make sure it is still available before completing an order. Thank you!
