Rod Shift Linkages (020: MK2 & MK3)

A generic image

SmartShift is designed for drivers who want the precision and positive feel that only a spherical bearing linkage can deliver. These systems work with all Mk2/3 4-cylinder "020" 5-speed transmissions (i.e. non-cable actuated).

This design eliminates all of the old stud/snap connectors which are replaced with spherical rod-ends. All rotating bushings are replaced with Delrin equivalents as is the relay shaft ball. The steel weighted section is professionally powder coated with a gorgeous finish.

Upon installation, all slop is eliminated for a virtually indestructible shifter setup. It requires little if any maintenance and provides dead-on shifting with that oh-so-nice, "click-click" feel. USRT has produced what we know is the best kit available on the market anywhere. All components are rally-grade and far exceed the quality found in other kits.
