    Default Quick Shift

    Question with regards to the Griffith quick shift unit.

    1. For those with the unit, which of the three 'notches' do you find works best?

    2. Does the quick shift attachment do any harm to the gearbox? i.e. why did the manufacturer decide on the 'default' shift length, and would changing it reduce the live of the gearbox in any way? I won't want to mess the car up and be denied a warranty repair.

    the quicker the shift the quicker and harder the synchros have to work to enable smooth changes

    it's just like ramming the lever harder but if you are careful it should be ok

    Mark,

    Depending on the year of your car - you may need to modify the QS kit - There is a pipe that the QS kit goes close to and may damage. If this is the case you'll need to cut the end two holes off and only use the closest one to the pivot point. This should reduce the shift length by about 25% or so.

    That said - I have heard rumors that Griffith Engineering have changed the design of the QS kit - Not 100% sure but if you try the guys on the 206-gti Yahoo group ( http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/peugeot-206gti/ ) they may have a better idea as I think someone has purchased a QS kit recently.

    The default shift length is the same on all 206's (XT, GTi, etc) The GTi 180 is different however and uses a cable shift. It seems as though it's designed for the average driver. You shouldnt trouble your warranty by putting one on. Besides - it can be quickly removed

    Hope this helps!

    Hi,

    i've got mine on the middle position right now. i had it initially on the shortest one before, but it was just a bit too notchy ... i've found middle to be a ggod compromise. then again, a lot of people have had it on the longest throw and been happy with that. There should be a 'how to' on 206gti.net.
