For anyone not comfortable with the long throw’s of the TH8A Shifter, here’s a solution! Shorten it.
There are two options to shorten your TH8A. (A) you could replace the shaft with a shorter one, or (B) just buy Ricmotech’s plate replacement. Clearly I went with option (B) 😀
There are plenty of online YouTube video review’s that go into greater detail about this neat kit, so I wont bore you too much.
Here is the final product that arrived in the mail including a manual and official Ricmotech signatures!!! For anyone not familiar with Ricmotech, you can checkout a whole range of their products here! Ricmotech
The packaged arrived with replacement screw’s too! So no need to worry on that front. The throw’s take a little to get use to, especially if you’re use to the longer length throw’s from stock. However, after a few hours of game-play your muscle memory adjusts and the faster your shifting begins to feel more evident.
The only thing I would have liked to be included in the package, Is a longer plastic sheath to go around the metal shaft. You may notice after a period of time the metal shaft get’s dented when shifting. This is from hitting the side’s of the metal TH8A H plate, when going into gears. So something to keep in mind, just don’t go smashing the gears! I haven’t needed to change anything yet, but just something to keep an eye on.
Overall, a great accessory to add to the arsenal 😉
