Scion XD Short Shifters
Eliminating harsh angles that the Scion XD 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 Scion XD short shifters, as even split seconds spent on nonessential maneuvers can make the difference between a winning race and a losing one. Effective Scion XD short shifters still activate each gear in its entirety when shifting, but transition between gears more rapidly than expected from stock Scion XD shifts, making this a popular, and useful, upgrade.
