Hi folks

Are there any upgrades that can be done to improve on the pudding stick gear change on the transaxle alfa 75's?
Thanks

Alex Jupe motorsport do the quikshift, but it's not a kit, they rebuild the isostatic linkage as a custom fit onto your car. Otherwise, if it's particularly sloppy, renewing the pivot bush at the bottom of the shifter, under the car may well be a good improvement. For the DIY approach, check out some of Junglejustice's solutions on his 3.7 race car project (quite a few pages to check out, but well worth reading through the whole build IMHO) It involves a bit of cutting / welding to change the leverage rate of the shifter for a shorter throw. Some people have also simply shortened the shifter (take off the shift knob, cut the shaft down a bit and re-thread for the knob to go back on) for a similar effect of shortening the shifter throw, but of course this also puts the shift knob further from your hand when driving.

Performatek also do a kit called the 'monkey shifter' which is to renew the linkage but is not a quick shift type kit as such

Have you tried replacing the bushes and properly adjusting the linkages? When set up properly the isostatic system on the 75 should be fine.

Thanks for the feedback gents. I will check the bushes and adjustment first and if still not happy I will take a look at some of the available kits. I know a guy who put a modified AE82 or was it AE92? Corrola linkage into his GTV but it was a lot of work.
