Short shifter for 500 Sport
Posted by Unknown on 14th Jul 2014
Outstanding product. It really enhances the fun and the driving experience. I would call this a "must" upgrade.
What a difference!

Just turned 400miles in my new 2013 Abarth, and the first thing I did was swap the stock shifter assembly for the short shifter kit, as well as the addition of the Abarth SS Race Shifter knob. Minimal effort to install, and the final result was, once again, something that would have been nice from the factory. Night and Day difference with zero play or factory-issued slop. Craven Speed has really hit the mark with their short shifter. Bravo
Short Shifter Is a must.

Craven has done it again, this short shifter is a must for the Abarth. The quality of the part is beyond compare, the instructions made the installation easy, and the results are better than expected. This makes the Abarth so much more fun to drive. I also installed the Craven Shift Knob, this makes shifting as smooth as glass.
Short Shifter for Abarth

Easy Install, very well thought out with the use of high-quality materials. Shift throw greatly reduced and gets rid of that semi-sloppy feel from the factory. Highly recommended from myself and my customers!
Short shifter for Abarth

The shifter is very well made and was quite simple to install.
The shifts are now short quick and percise, should have come with this from the factory IMO. I used the original knob and found it to long and forces the boot down to far in the shift tower. I would recommend purchasing a knob for the Abarth at the same time. A great mod! My new knob will be along any day.
Works on the 2012 Abarth

Works beautifully and precise on the the Abarth! Combined with the weighted knob makes this combination worthy of it's price.
I have the first 2012 Abarth in the Pacific Northwest. The Craven shifter really makes the driving experience even better.

It works quite a bit more precise then stock however, it's amenities do not justify it's absorbent cost by any means. I was taught a lesson....
