  1. Awesomeness 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th May 2018

    This is one of those parts that completely changes the way the car feels, in the best possible way. The shifter is a work of art. Installation was fairly straight forward. Feels absolutely great when driving. 110% worth it.

    Customer service from Jake was exceptional as well.

  2. WORK OF ART 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Feb 2015

    The first thing I noticed when receiving this from the mailman was how incredibly light the CAE was. The quality of the build is what is most noticed. I haven't installed it yet but Im sure I will be more than happy.

  3. The Best shifter I have ever used. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2014

    I have install many of these in both race cars and street cars. I think they are the best by far!

  4. Epic shifter 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2014

    The instructions are poorly translated to english. I would subtract 1 star for that. That being said, the engineering on this shifter is unbelievable. Driving is greatly enhanced. 5 Stars all the way.....6 if the instructions were improved.

  5. CAE SHIFTER 5 Star Review

    Product came in very quickly (2 days to Hawaii). Customer service was topnotch. Can't wait to get it install, pending my current turbo install.

  6. Hands-down the best shifter on the market 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2014

    I've had both the BW and AKG body mounted solid shifters on my cars, and the CAE is no comparison. The shifts are notchy, crisp, and confidence-inspiring. The mechanism is very well made and pretty to look at to boot.

  7. I gives me great confidence when I am racing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2014

    Installed the shifter after a losing lots of ground during races from mis-shifting and a money shift at CIrcuit of the Americas. No I have CAE shifter and I think it is worth every penny spent. I raced for first time in the rain at Texas World and it was flawless.

    See the shifter in action on you tube.
