That's wierd, Car and Driver praised the Fit for its sporty precise shifter. But you definately can't go wrong getting a shorter throw.

I wouldn't call the Fit's shifter a long throw, but good work in making it shorter.

I thought the throw on Fit was nice, short and crisp compared to the '86.

Shouldn't that be AFTER making your shifter into a short throw shifter?

Might not want to drink too much while making it...LOL...never know what you might end up with!
