New shifter recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hi I am thinking of getting a new  shifter can anyone recommend one.

Any owner reviews or one's to avoid would be great, To suit R33 GTST.

Looking for smoother more precise shifting.

There's such a limited range that the existing reviews/discussion on this site should suffice

You are not going to get smoother more precise shifting from a shifter in a skyline.

Well does anyone have a Cube premium shifter in their car ?

Previous reviews mention C's that are not available anymore.

So you think I should just get a new bushing brass or plastic ?

Years ago I used some aftermarket brass bushing to replace the plastic one in my boat.

Twas a good improvement.

Pretty sure there is a how to thread here I used.

You could also replace/upgrade the return springs to give it a tighter feel

There are 3 options hard, medium, soft, which one to choose without trying them all out ?

Anyone have opinions on the return spring, also brass or nylon bushing.

Thanks

No way will you tell the difference between a brass or nylon bushing.

 

The springs are cheap as. Just buy them all and find what you like.. Or do you prefer some random guy to tell you their prefefence?

Buy a new cup, wave washer and shifter bush from Taarks or Kudos. Get shifter springs from gktech. Do fresh gearbox oil with a tube of nulon smooth shift. That's about the best you can do. Stay away from the ebay offerings.

Don't mean to bring this thread back from the dead but I have also been thinking of a new shorter throw shifter for the GTR.  I know there's pros and cons I've read on here about this, but seems like the Nismo 25% one is good and about $300 (USD) here in Japan but the Cube speed ones look nice too and are less expensive.  People really prefer OEM over one of these models? 

Example of the Nismo 25% reduced shifter: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/g424885412

I have a hardly used Nismo 25% quick shifter here that I was running on the 32R with an OS giken 5 speed. It was awesome - the tightness changed and is very very short shifts, but very positive. I rate them.

I've since changed to a dog box but have the stock shifter with that box now, as the stock shifter is a bit quicker to remove. I should try the quick shifter with the dog box, but I have heard of it not being good with it. I might stick it in the 33.

The cube speed shifter comes with everything you need to swap it. Far far better than the nismo shifter. I have had a chiza, nismo and now a cube and the cube wins hands down

Do you have the standard or the "premium" cube shifter?

The premium one. It comes with everything you need and extra springs to make the shifter well solid

The premium is still less expensive than the nismo 25% reduction. Very tempting. I wish I can try both first! Although being in Japan it would be convenient to get the nismo. Thanks everyone!
