• Upgrading That Old Shifter

    We wanted something better, strong, faster…

Trafficcox Short Shifter

An Ace Shorter Shift Kit from Our Sponsors in France

Although a new clutch was installed on “Lily” along with a shifter extension, it just wasn't cutting it. After extensive research we came across a high quality shifter from the folks @ Trafficcox in France.  We struck up a conversation with them through Facebook, and they agreed to hook us up. Although their fan page is mostly in French, they speak fluent English, so communication was great! A month ago we received the Trafficox Short Shifter and have to say it is of superb quality of materials and construction.

Last weekend we finally got around to installing this new unit, and man what a difference this Trafficcox short shifter makes! From start to finish it took about 10-15 minutes, 30 for us because we wanted documentation pictures of the process to show you guys. There are a few cool features we wanted to point out as well.  First off, the shaft is noticeably thicker in diameter and longer in length to shorten your reach when hunting for the gears.

Second, the Trafficcox short shifter unit has a larger shift ball where it connects to the shift lever at the floor plate, and now does not need to be “pushed” into reverse thanks to innovative engineering.  This is now one of our favorite features on this product. The Trafficcox short shifter has a much shorter “throw” distance and stands higher on the column for brisk and easy gear selection. We are STOKED on this shifter, and can genuinely say this is a highly recommended product that comes with the Bus Junkies seal of approval. Two thumbs up Trafficcox!

If you've been thinking about upgrading your shifter, we think you need to contact the folks at Trafficcox through the link below. PM them any questions you might have, they really are cool dudes to work with and make a great product!
