Your Price (USD): $29.95
Compatability: TH8RS and TH8A Shifter

Availability: Usually Ships in 1 to 2 Days
Item #: RMT-TMSS

Reduce the shift distance of your Thrustmaster TH8RS or TH8A shifter and shorten your lap times. This kit changes the geometry of the shifter which reduces the fore-aft throw by 35% and the side-to-side range by 20%. This is the only kit on the market that shortens the shifter movement in both directions. This kit lets you retain the original shifter gate plate. Includes all required hardware and detailed installation instructions.

Our kit doesn't just make the shift gates shorter. Instead it changes the geometry of the shifter to reduce the length of the shift, the spacing between the gears and the overall side-to-side movement of the shifter lever. No other device on the market does what this kit achieves.

S/T Shifter kit for the Thrustmaster shifter November 14, 2017
Reviewer: Bruce R from Fredericton, NB Canada  
Excellent product that's well constructed. If you're like me and don't care much for the long throw stock shifter.  This is exactly what you need.

Would be awesome if I could still use reverse October 3, 2017
Reviewer: Craig from New Hampshire  
This product definitely shortens up my shifts. Feels great, much more similar to my DD.

Unfortunately, without me forcing and holding the shifter into reverse, it's just a *little* shy of engaging the reverse button. This is fine in most of my racing games, where I never use reverse, but is a deal-breaker for something like American Truck Simulator.

If the device were made to a tighter tolerance (maybe milled piece of aluminum rather than 3D printed?) it would probably work fine. As it is, it needs to be modified for me to happy about it.

The price is pretty steep for a piece of 3D printed plastic that doesn't work perfect out of the box.

Ricmotech: Craig, please refer to this tech article on how to recalibrate your shifter. This should get it working correctly. http://www.ricmotech.com/kb_results.asp?ID=18

Works Exactly as it Should August 1, 2017
Reviewer: Kyle  
The thing was easy to install, and even easier to use. It does shorten the throw making it easier to shift quickly. No missing screws, manual was very clear, and it even came with shrink wrap to stop the clinking together of the shift stick to the shift gate. Other reviewers have said this shrink wrap is hard to install and doesn't last long, so I opted for electrical tape instead. I think it's a better option since you don't need a heat gun, and it's easily replaceable as it wears.
A simple, great product from Ricmotech. :)
