AxialFlow S2 Shifter

I know it's been a long time coming but it has.
Here's two pics. If Izzy would only show up we might even get to test it.
Are you there Izzy??

For a tease; the upper piece is SS while the bottom one is 4340 chrome moly.
In production the 4340 will get black oxide treatment.
I'll tell some more after testing.

Hi Richard Paul, we have recieved your PM's (Izzy and I) and unfortunately Izzy is out of town until Friday due to Work. Maybe we can arrange for something on Saturday afternoon?

We are getting somewhere! The shifter is turning out great!

That thing is so slamed that I have trouble getting in it.
Makes working on it hard for an old man.

This is what it looks like.
I need to make a couple of little tools so you don't have to run around looking or building stuff.
There is a sleeve that goes on the shaft to contact the boot.
I'll make those tomorrow.

Are any of you who are waiting for this local to me?
Izzy is not making contact and I need an S2 for final fitting and DIY photos.

^Busy with work. Saturday is the earliest that we have open. We are just as excited to get this finally fitted and installed. Maybe tommorrow, but highly doubt it.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the first Axial Flow Engineering prototype short shifter for the Series 2 RX8!!!

Some modifications had to be made today for final fitment, but we got it! Production should start soon. It feels amazing! Shifting with the flick of a finger never felt better!
D.I.Y. install coming soon!

If you order this week it's at the S1 price of 269
After that it will be 285
They are in production now, I hope to get them assembled and shipped by the end of the week. At latest first of the next.
We are going to write the DIY next weekend.
