The Hybrid Racing cables are a performance upgrade replacement for stock OEM cables. The solid rod ends, 30% thicker cable core and spherical bearings give the Hybrid Racing cables a firmer, tighter feel over OEM cables resulting in fewer missed shifts and a more connected feel to the chassis.
We created a cable to give people peace of mind and improved driving performance when they shift hard and during demanding racing applications and the Hybrid Racing performance cables achieve this goal!
Other notable features of the Hybrid Racing cables are spherical bearings, stainless steel push rods, and upgraded stainless steel swivel support tubes (oem are plastic) that are known to break on the OEM cables. All of the rod ends, and mounting bushings are CNC machined 6061 aluminum that have been heat treated and coated with a black hard anodized before being laser etched with the Hybrid Racing logo and flair.
Are these cables a direct replacement for my OEM 9th gen style cables?
Yes! The OEM cable that controls the right/left motion of the shifter has been upgraded from a plastic twist-lock bushing to aluminum bushings and spring clip. This aluminum bushing simplifies installation a bit, but more importantly, it gets rid of yet another plastic part that tends to flex on the OEM cables, leading to a sloppy feeling shift. The extra spring clips that you will need to install the Hybrid Racing cables are included so you will not need to buy any other parts. An easy to follow installation tips sheet can be found on our site to make installation as worry-free as possible.
What is included with these shifter cables?
The kit comes with two shifter cables; each shifter cable set includes two cotter pins, clips for the shifter end, and transmission selector lever springs. The upgraded gear selector springs aren't required but are recommended to further improve the feel of your gear changes.
