20 Apr Vertical shift pattern nose cone
“ V-GATE” Nose Cone converts H-Shift to a straight up and back pattern.
Ranacho’s Fast Fab Verigate is a nose cone V-Gate shifting mechanism which converts the traditional “H” shift pattern to a straight up and back layout. Not really the hot ticket for street cars as down shifting requires a couple of extra movements, but the straight up gear transition is fast, positive and great for cutting ET times at the track. Machined from solid billet and pre-fit with HP seals, Rancho offers the FAST FAB nose cones anodized in clear or black with applications for both VW Type 1 and Mendeola 2D transaxles. Each kit ships complete with all installation hardware and retails for just $295.00. Note: Disassembly is required in order to drill and tap the shift rails. Note: requires use of a vertical gate shift linkage
