Mazdaspeed Short Shift Plate
The Damond Motorsports SSP works by moving the ball on which the shifter cable is mounted closer to the input selector fork, thus reducing the throw of the shifts. The shifter itself retains the factory height. The SSP attaches to the transmission shifter assembly in a slide over and under fashion, and is locked into place with the included hardware. The hardware supplied allows the SSP to be installed with or without the factory shift weight.
We have spent much time in the development of our SSP to provide a great feeling shifter without the risk of any binding of components. Our SSP was designed to offer the absolute most in reduction without the shifter cable boots rubbing against the shifter assembly. The overall goal was shift feel where reduction came second. Our SSP's do not use any standoffs and do not drastically raise the shifter ball assembly, both of which that could result in binding or damage to the shift cables or improper shifter feel. The Damond Motorsports SSP's are machined out of aircraft grade aluminum for strength, and to keep less weight on the shifter assembly.
Available in Black or Gold anodize
This little shifter plate is pure enjoyment! Feels great! It’s a MUST have for every Mazdaspeed! I’m so happy with all the products I bought from DM, just OUTSTANDING stuff!
Great price for the quality of the part.
Installation of the shift plate on my 2013 MS3 was so simple that even if you had to left thumbs and was blind you could do it. Short shifting no issues at all. Great addition.
Holy short shift! I drove my MS3 for 6 years wondering if I should install a short shift plate, but I was reluctant after hearing mixed results. The design considerations and the price point of the Damond short shift plate made my decision easy. Install was a breeze plate with the stock shift weight. I cannot believe what I was missing! Shifts are short, firm, and precise. If you're thinking of getting one, do yourself a favor, don't wait 6 years. Get one today!
