    I believe that I have everything in order to make my car shift better, or the best that it can. I have a new Focus RS shifter assembly, Anarchy Motive shift knob, JBR short shift plate, shifter base bushings, shifter cable bracket bushings, and cable end bushings. If I have any vagueness in my shifting after all that, then I don't know what I'll do.

    Why use a shift plate instead of a shift arm. you probably also end up wanting and weighted shift knob as it'll take more effort with a shorter throw to get it into gear

    Does JBR even sell a bolt on plate? I thought they just had the arm.

    The shift knob I have is 588 grams, so it has some heft to it.

    I misspoke, it is the entire shift arm, not just a plate.

    Youd pull the shifter cable bracket off the trans and weld a reinforcement piece to it to stiffen it up. Thats pretty much all thats left, lol.

    I can't remember who all has done it, but I believe that Deuce did it on his.

    Edit: Looks like Cive and Deuce have done it. https://www.focusst.org/forum/focus-...e-bracket.html
