Third in the instalment of ‘Product Potential’ which explores a range of products with emphasis on their benefits comes the Mini Sport ‘Quickshift’ gear lever kit.
The Mini Sport ‘Quickshift’ gear lever kit is available for both rod change and remote change gearboxes; which can be installed simply by a competent enthusiast in just 30 minutes.
The ‘Quickshift’ gear lever kit is a must-have addition for those who enjoy spirited driving or alternatively drivers involved in a form of motorsport where the gear changes need to be timed to perfection; keeping engine revs at the optimum level to maintain engine torque.
The standard gear lever has a leverage ratio of 8:1 – which refers to the approximate travel of 140mm, between 1st & 2nd and 3rd & 4th gear
In contrast to this the Mini Sport ‘Quickshift’ gear lever has a leverage ratio of 4:1 with an approximate travel of 70mm between 1st & 2nd and 3rd & 4th, a 80mm reduction in travel. This reduction in lever travel promotes faster gear changes in every gear and in addition, provided a much more precise and responsive gear selection for the driver.
