Here is a bit of news from Craven Speed that I am passing along for their Short Shifter kit..
Craven Speed of Portland, OR is pleased to announce a new 3 piece kit with a special price. Due to the popularity of our aluminum shift well cover, and the innovation of our adjustable short shifter we would like to offer them both in tandem with our sleek shift knob design as well.
Our aluminum shift well cover works well in the Mini both mechanically and aesthetically. This easy to install and easy to clean component will look great in either brushed aluminum or anodized black. This is the perfect complement to the Craven Speed Short Shifter. Allows the driver to adjust the shift throw without having to feel around inside the boot and also reveals the great looks of the anodized shifter main pivot.
The Craven Speed adjustable short shifter allows you the option to adjust the throw from 0% to 45% shorter than stock! This adjustment can be made quickly and easily, while you are in the car! The advantages of a shorter throw are well documented but the leverage required by the driver is increased as the throw is shortened. Now you will not have to give that kind of effort during a traffic jam. This quality part is hybrid designed and CNC machined from 1144 “stresspruf”, black odixided steel and 6061 Aluminum.
Our shift knob combines the comfort of a rubber ringed grip with the sleek style of an aluminum shifter knob. Our shift knob comes in raw aluminum, as well as anodized black, red, and blue. It is also available with custom designs.
For a limited time we will be offering this slick shift kit, featuring the shifter, shift well cover, and shift knob at a reduced price. You can get all this for only $279.95. Orders can be placed on our website www.Cravenspeed.com or by calling toll free at 888-493-7262.
