Video: Watch a four-foot shifter on a Dodge ViperJuly 30, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
I take this as a personal assault on one of the most loved cars of all times. All of those who have bought the short shift kit have been made to look like a fool by owner of a second generation Dodge Viper who fixed a four-foot shifter in his car.
In technical terms, having a long shifter reduces the effort that is needed to change gears. Having said that, it is completely insane to have a shifter that is beyond the space your car commands. Someone must have gotten really emotional to do this or someone has a thing with Viper to offend in such a grave manner.
The video which shows the shifter has a description that definitely tells us that someone spoofed around just for fun. The description says “Warning this will not fit on a GTS or hardtop SRT10 Gen3 or 4 Coupe and would interfere with a convertible top when placed in the closed position”.
Well, guess somebody did it intentionally, but maybe this isn’t the worst that has been doen to a Viper. Have you seen anything bad than this, tell us. We are all ears.
