Mazda 3 Short Shifters
Eliminating harsh angles that the Mazda 3 shifter is forced to go through during the course of shifting between gears can allow a driver to make smoother, more rapid gear shifts. Racers and serious performance drivers tend to prefer the quickness and reliability provided by Mazda 3 short shifters, as even split seconds spent on nonessential maneuvers can make the difference between a winning race and a losing one. Effective Mazda 3 short shifters still activate each gear in its entirety when shifting, but transition between gears more rapidly than expected from stock Mazda 3 shifts, making this a popular, and useful, upgrade.
