1991 Acura NSX: The Shifter

March 27, 2012

Have I told you guys recently how much I love the NSX's shifter? In my opinion, it's one of the best gearboxes ever created.

The gates are incredibly precise and the shifter operates with a bolt-action feel as you go from gear to gear. It's so sweet.

I guess it might be possible to miss a gear in the NSX, but man, you'd really have to work at it.

But, there's a shifter I like even a little bit better than the one in the NSX...

It's from the same company: The excellent 6-speed that was found in Honda's S2000, which had equally precise gates, but ultra-short throws and a lighter action. It was truly fantastic, and awesome for pounding around at track days. All shifters should be that good.

What's the best gearbox you've had the pleasure of using?
