Hybrid Racing Short Shifter Assembly V2.0 for the 06-11 Honda Civic (Si & Base Model)
Hybrid Racing continues to strive for ultimate performance and reliability so they took the original 06-11 Civic shifter assembly and sent it back to the drawing board. After countless hours of design, engineering and testing hybrid racing completed a major overhaul of their shifter system. The shifter has an unparalleled level of adjustability, so that each driver could tweak every aspect of the shifter to suit their own preference. Ultimately, what we developed was a durable, versatile short shifter that is simple enough to allow an affordable price, so you can have your race car without eating ramen noodles for a month.
The shifter’s frame is constructed from TIG welded, powder coated, 1000 Series steel. The Dust-Gold anodized upper and lower rocker assemblies are now made of single pieces of Aerospace aluminum and feature custom sealed ball bearings to reduce friction. The new V2 shifter is 60% smoother than the original version requiring much less physical effort to row through gears. It is also lighter.
Shift throw adjustment is achieved using two threaded cable attachment pins, meaning fine tweaks can be made to shift throw, allowing you to dial in the exact throw that suits your shifting style. Each attachment pin features a wear-resistant Delrin pivot cap for sturdy, quiet operation. New dual, zinc-plated extension springs replace the OEM style torsion centering spring for better-centering action and more direct feel. The front/back throw and left/right throw can be adjusted independently and figures for throw reduction are shown below:

How much shorter?
Average 50% shorter than stock, to put it simply, but those who want a more in-depth look at how much shorter view the stats below.
06-08 8th Gen Honda Civic Si:
-front/back adjustable from 80%-48% stock throw (20%-52% reduction)
-left/right adjustable from 83%-47% stock throw (17%-53% reduction)
09-11 8th Gen Honda Civic Si:
-front/back adjustable from 87%-52% stock throw (17%-48% reduction)
-left/right adjustable from 90%-49% stock throw (10%-51% reduction)
Height Adjustment too!
Beyond simple throw reduction, we have built in a feature that many 8th Gen Civic owners have long desired but never had: shift knob height adjustment. Our simple single-bolt height adjustment design (borrowed from our popular k-swap shifters) allows the knob to be adjusted higher or lower than stock (within a 1.5″ total range) with only a 5mm allen wrench. Now you can tweak the shifter’s throw AND knob position independently until the shifter functions exactly the way you want it to.
This short shifter assembly is designed so that base bushings are not needed, meaning there’s no need to spend extra money on solid shifter base bushings. The shifter is compatible with OEM 8th Gen Civic cables, or our performance 8th Gen Civic cables. This shifter will work on both the base model R18 platform, as well as the Si’s K20 platform.
Fitment: 06-11 Honda Civic Si & Non-Si

This shifter is amazing. Installation was pretty easy and I'm no mechanic. Hybrid Racing has a very good install guide on their website, but Hardmotion always has very fast shipping and the best price. I'd recommend Hardmotion and this short shifter to anyone. Big thanks to Hardmotion for sending me the new red color as soon as they got them.
Was to me in 2 days after I ordered. Lightning fast! Thank you guys, they indicated to me they never run out of these anymore either. Good place to buy from.
I recived this item super quick, all the way to California in only a few days, overall review of the shifter, its great! you can make the throws however you'd like. would recommend this to have a great feel for ur car
Buy this you won't regret it. I don't know why I didn't get one sooner. Fast shipping too.
I got this shifter a couple of weeks ago now and I honestly couldn't be happier with it. It feels amazing and the throws are so short and so much better than the stock shifter. Only thing is I recommend putting some grease on the springs because they do tend to squeak.
The throws are short, just make sure you grease the springs up because they do make some noise. But overall the shifter is well made and the shifts have a positive feel on foenem
Great product excellent shipping, got in 2 days will deff do bussiness here again!!
the price was well worth it!! took a while to get here because it was on back order and i ordered it right before the hurricane hit in Florida so waited almost two months but i was patient. took me 2 hours to install keeping in mind i had no idea how too but it wasn't that hard to figure out. would totally recommend it!!!
