The HGT Precision Shift levers are works of art with smooth flowing lines, massive strength and a finish quality that amplify the components that have gone into producing it.
The levers are carved by a CNC machine from billet 7075-T6 alloy. The base plate is CNC’d from 6061-T6 billet…simply put; this shifter will take all you can throw at it. The shift lever pivot point is critical, so rather than using brass bushes like some, we press in cylindrical roller bearings either side of the pivot on a generously sized stainless steel main shaft to ensure there is no slop in the shift setup and that that the shifters will last for years to come.
The resulting virtually zero slop greatly assists the ease and consistency of flat a shift trigger set up. We then anodize the whole shifter setup in natural silver for a premium finish and close off the sides with carbon fibre panels for clean, strong aesthetics. Our hand finished ergonomic detachable black shift knobs are secured onto the lever seamlessly and sit 385mm, 362mm, 337mm, or 307mm above the bottom of the base plate - perfect for most. Because each car is different and each driver has a unique a seating position, we provide our Shift Lever setup as a remote fit.
This means you get shift lever exactly where you want it. You simply cut the supplied solid alloy shift rod to length, right hand tap one end (we’ve already tapped the left hand thread end) and secure the connecting/adjustment rod to the shift shaft with the supplied rod ends. Reverse engagement is built into the main shift lever with a Lockout and Lock-in system.
Centre Tunnel or Right Offset?
We have two options for lateral placement
- Centre of the drive shaft tunnel
- Rght of Centre 64mm closer to the steering wheel (in a RHD race car).
There is +/- 20mm of lateral movement from these positions.
On both levers, reverse is engaged by first selecting neutral, depressing the clutch, then pushing the Lock-out mechanism and squeezing the reverse trigger lever with your first two fingers. The supplied cable and fittings do the work with the gearbox to engage reverse gear, just release the clutch and you’re backing up.
