NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically if we are able to get them within 30 days. Longer than 30 day backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate 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: $119.95

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:)..
