Pesky - HELP!

Peskoid!I’ve just ordered the quick shift gearbox conversion, but I’ve been asked which one I want. Apparently, there is a Lotus Motorsport one and there is the gearstick conversion.Any idea which one yours is??I’ve got it booked in tomorrow along with a new alternator!!Cheers Mate

Like me he has the B&M manufactured short shift stick.Out of the two, it sounds like the “gear stick conversion”.

thank you, sir!

The B&M is a Lotus badged part, that should have a 23% & 33% reduction setting. I understand Lotus recommend the 23% (which I have). I seem to remember a few issues over selecting 5th with the 33% reduction.The changer does not make a massive difference but it certainly gives a much more engineered feel, which I like.Ian [image][/image]

MikeAs Mr Admin says, it’s the B&M jobbie. Mine is set at 33%, & I think it makes a big difference - particularly when on track. 5th gear selection does have to be more precise, but on track this is not a problem (well not for me on Oulton, Donington, Cadwell or Anglesey!, as I don’t need 5th!

Anybody know how hard is it to change between 23% & 33%?Cheers, Ian [image][/image]

IanI’ve lent my B&M fitting instructions to someone else - so can’t send them to you right now. If you’ve not had any luck in the next couple of weeks, let me know (I’m in Le Mans between 12th & 18th June).
