On this subject: Can I get a shifter that's positioned a little bit further 'back' and maybe a little higher - - maybe 3-4 inches? I already have the short-shift kit installed, but have a hard time staying seatbelted in and hitting 1st and 3rd [gotta lean forward too much]... Maybe my arms are just too short

Thanks,

Alot of people would like that, and not only in 911's

I have a weltmeister short shift kit with tight bushings throughout in mine including the coupler.
I removed the leather boot and rubber boot under it and heated the steel shift rod red hot where it bends back with an acetylene and oxygen torch, then bent it back about 1 inch farther and over to the left around an inch.

That helped and I don't have to lean forward a little to shift into 3rd now.

I did the heat and bend on my short shifter as well. Worked ok, but not good enough for the track when belted in tight. The Hargett shifter pulls it up and back just right. It's just right there. No info on the WEVO, but hear good reviews.

From the pics, the hargett looks like it does just that... just needed someone with 1st "hand" experience - thanks...

I don't have any pics of it.
The lower part of the shift rod should be straight up when in nuetral. The upper part that is bent back can be wherever you like it.
Someone on the technical forum made an extension about 3" long for it. Maybe a search would find it.

After bending it you can remove it, then sand and respray paint it satin black.

I love my Hargett shifter

I don't have one in my SC but struggled with the same problem you are having reaching the shifter when belted in. I customized my shifter with bits from Weltmeister and the factory shoft shifter to my tastes.

WEVO you will love it. I had the factory, weltmeister, and whatever AJ racing had. Wevo is by far the best.

I modified my factory shifter years ago before my current setup. I have done this with 901's, 915's, 930's and G50's with the same results. I cut the section of the floor and move it back and straighten out the shift lever. after that The linkage rod needs to be cut. Although it doesn't shorten the throw, it does change the length of the shifter which in turn does slightly shorten the throw. But the placement makes up for it.
