SCAT Drag Fast Shifter, Straight, 1968+ Beetle and Super Beetle and ALL T3 , 80500
SCAT Drag Fast Shifter, Straight, 1968+ Beetle and Super Beetle and ALL T3 , 80500


 
SCAT Drag Fast Shifter, Straight, 1968+ Beetle and Super Beetle and ALL T3 , 80500 is a timeless classic, works great! Reverse lock-out T-handle and "Scat" cast into the handle. Features a Teflon Ball and Cradle, and Heat Treated Shifter Ball and Shaft. for long life.

This shifter has been around for over 20 years, it's precise and works very well. In fact this shifter has the tightest shift pattern of any shifter we sell, and we STRONGLY recommend you replace your shift rod bushing, and your shift coupler, since this shifter does not tolerate "sloppy" shift linkage.

Reverse is engaged by pulling up on the forward "T", instead of pushing a Thumb Button in, or awkwardly depressing the entire shifter downwards. This prevents accidental shifts into reverse when you are trying to get 2nd gear!

Price: $99.95

5 of 5 Scat Drag Fast Shifter July 11, 2013
Reviewer: Michael Mounts from Chicago, IL United States  
Nice Shifter...very different feel.  Extremely notchy...and the throw seems measured in mere centimeters!

Installation was quick---and I'm a "white collar guy".  However,the plate is integrated into the shifter---which makes adjusting a little more challenging than with shifters with seperate plates.  There is very little room for adjustment.  Given the very short throws---the advice to change out the bushings is spot on.  After changing my rear box and bushings---its far more of a  pleasure to drive in Chicago traffic--with lots of 1st-2nd shifting.  Reverse is flawless--you'll never hit reverse accidentally again.  It's 12" tall--slightly higher than stock-- and for me is the perfect height...

I give it a thumbs up:)..
