The 06-11 Civic Hybrid Racing shifter’s frame is constructed from TIG welded, powder coated, 1000 Series steel. The lower pivot point features chrome plated all-steel construction, and the upper pivot (where the shift lever mounts) is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum. Both pivots feature oil-impregnated bronze bushings pivoting on hard-chrome plated steel shafts for maximum wear resistance and quiet operation. Shift throw adjustment is achieved using two threaded cable attachment pins, meaning fine tweaks can be made to shift throw, allowing you to pin point the exact throw that suits you. Each attachment pin features a wear-resistant delrin pivot cap for sturdy, quite operation. Dual extension springs replace the OEM style torsion centering spring for better centering action and a less “sloppy” feel. The front/back throw and left/right throw can be adjusted independently and figures for throw reduction are shown below:
Pre ’09 8th Gen Honda Civic Si:
front/back adjustable from 80%-48% stock throw (20%-52% reduction)
left/right adjustable from 83%-47% stock throw (17%-53% reduction)
’09+ 8th Gen Honda Civic Si:
front/back adjustable from 87%-52% stock throw (17%-48% reduction)
left/right adjustable from 90%-49% stock throw (10%-51% reduction)
This short shifter assembly is designed so that base bushings are not needed, meaning there’s no need to spend extra money on solid shifter base bushings. The shifter is compatible with OEM 8th Gen Civic cables and Hybrid Racing performance 8th Gen Civic cables. This shifter will work on both the base model R18 platform, as well as the Si’s K20 platform.
