The Acuity Shifter Rocker Upgrade for the 10th Gen Honda Civic can be appreciated as much during street driving as at the track. Altered geometry reduces the mechanical advantage of the rocker to provide narrower, stiffer gates.
Much like how a short throw adapter reduces the distance in the forward and reverse direction while changing gears, this Shifter Rocker Upgrade reduces the distance in the left and right direction while changing gears (such as 2 to 3, 4 to 5, etc). The OEM plastic has been replaced with billet 6061-T6 aluminum construction. This makes for a much stiffer part, meaning less flex when shifting forcefully and better feedback from the transmission during shifts.
Additionally, Acuity's unique joint designs at the main pivot and spherical joint incorporate low-friction, self-lubricating bushings that are designed to reduce friction in the shifter while naturally eliminating any gaps between parts in the joint. This allows the joint to wear-compensate over time, meaning the rocker will age gracefully and provide many years of use, abuse, and happy shifting.
