NOTICE

Many sought after parts are backordered these days. Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

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:)..
