Race Spec Short Throw Shifter

Finally a no-compromises short throw shifter that can not only handle the toughest rigors of competition racing, but also posses excellent street manners for your daily driver. Starting with a clean sheet, the RACE SPEC shifter from MGW now solid mounts to the transmission via billet strut arms and features a solid linkage rod connecting the shifter to the transmission giving a true "top loader" feel in every shift!


Updated Design for 2016 — we've listened and heard your feedback on our MT-82's, and so we've made several design changes to satisfy the most performance-hungry enthusiast. The new design is more compact and will fit inside the car's oval cutout, fully assembled; no more bashing your knuckles trying to get the the unit installed. This shaves at least 30 minutes off the install time and is great whether you're doing it at home or having it done at a performance shop. The shifter may be more compact, but it's still got every bit of performance you've come to expect from our high-quality race spec shifters!

Check out the videos below for more detail.


X-SPEC Shifter

We've gotten many requests to build a shifter with an even MORE drastic throw reduction, and we've listened! If you need the shortest throw possible, then choose the X-SPEC model, with up to a 25% reduction in shift length possible over the stock shifter. We've also added a Low Profile handle option, which can be used with either the Standard or X-SPEC model shifter for even greater throw reduction.


Standard Standard 3.000 in. 15%
Standard Low Profile 2.835 in. 19%
X-SPEC Standard 2.765 in. 21%
X-SPEC Low Profile 2.625 in. 25%
