Description

This is the Kartboy Short Throw Shifter that has been designed to reduce the shifter throw by up to 40%, providing a noticeable difference in feel as well. These will also reduce your shift knob height by 1”. The Kartboy shifter is constructed of CNC’d and TIG welded 4130 Cr-Mo steel. With proper hand tools installation should take right around 30 minutes. 

Please note for you WRX owners, that this is the correct shifter for you. This will fit in the 2002-2007 WRX models with the factory shifter assembly only. If your car has the upgraded SPT/STI short shifter package, you will need to purchase the KB-001 part number. The easiest way to tell this is by pulling down your factory shift boot and looking at the color of the lever. If it is a gold zinc plated lever, then you have the STI option installed. If it is dark gray in color, then it is the stock assembly.

crispy smooth

Had a cobb on my previous wrx that i had a few issues with including not wanting to engage the reverse. So i figured id go with the Kartboy this time. Perfect height , still enough leverage to easy throw gears. throw feels good too. The gates feel harder to engage in the initial test drive but once you get used to it the shifting feels tight and crispy. paired with the cobb shift knob I'm quite happy 07 wrx

Kartboy Short Throw Shifter
Tyler Morgan 2 years ago
2006 WRX Sedan This shifter is everything that I wanted in a short throw. The difference in throw is night and day and it just makes the car that much more fun to drive. I planned on spending the extra money for the Cobb short throw, but decided to grab one of these instead. Although being able to adjust the Cobb would be nice, I wouldn't change anything about this shifter anyway! Install was fairly straight forward. Just a pain to get the ball joint back in place. I put my stock shift knob back on and just pounded the lever in with my hand. It hurt but it was worth it lol. Even without new bushings, it is still a vast improvement over stock. We'll see how much better the bushings are when I get those as well.

Awesome product!

Bought this on my 02 Subaru 2.5 RS.. so cool! if you owned an 02 impreza Rs like me you WON'T need a c-clip pliers for these models. but it's freaking hard to pop the new short throw shifter in to it's place, you might wanna take a tiny bits of plastic off and lots of pushing force. took me a while but it's worth it. so fun to drive now. Definitely buy this first including the bushings, it makes a lot of your driving exp. different.
