The mountune cast Short-Shift Arm for the Mk8 Fiesta ST is a complete replacement for the OE shift arm located on the gearbox.
Shifter throw is reduced by 25%, allowing quick and more precise gear changes, whilst the carefully re-profiled and placement of the material mass ensures gearshifts are actually vastly improved over OE; shorter changes come as standard, without sacrificing any shift engagement or feel.
A shorter, crisper shifter throw provides a positive driving experience with the Mk8 Fiesta ST. After considerable evaluation and input, mountune engineers determined the optimum throw reduction for the mk8 Fiesta shifter to be at 25%.
This amount allows an enhanced driving experience, whilst maintaining an OE quality and feel, with minimal stress on the OE shift cables and components.
The shirt shifter is very very good. The weak link in the ST experience is the gear change and I found the standard one to be a little loose and not very precise. The new arm fitted at Mountune HQ is a game changer. It not only shortens the throw but tightens up the gearbox feel. I had a very long journey home (3 hours in rush hour) lots of stop start traffic and some good opportunities to go through the ratios under full load and I am very happy indeed. Thanks Mountune, Ryan and Fred and team. Please bring out more products. A Stage 2 map would be fantastic.
Great mod for the ST. Really nice weighted shift through the box compared with the slightly vague OEM shift. Reduced movement feels spot on. If you only do 1 mod to your ST, then this is it, as you will notice the difference every time you drive the car.
Unfortunately not yet able to install but the material alone looks great and very durable! Just a pity that I have had to wait so long for my order without any communication.
Sorry about the delay with getting these out, but hopefully the improvement every time you change gear from now on will make up for that!
