Fastline Performance Shifter for Civics and Integras is On Now!

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

By popular demand on NWP4life.com, we have opened up a group buy for the world famous Fastline Performance shifter!

Link HERE to see the details on this awesome deal! ::: https://www.heeltoeauto.com/pages.php?pageid=27

The Fastline Performance Shifter was originally developed in 2003 to be the absolute BEST Honda/Acura shifter available.

More than a short shifter or retrofit to a stock part, the Fastline Performance Shifter was designed from the ground up as a completely new solution to getting faster shifts.

How does it work? Two key features are the key to this shifter’s effectiveness in achieving the smoothest and fastest shifts possible.

1) Close reach. By placing the knob a close distance from the “4 o’clock” position of the steering wheel you will find that grabbing a gear is unbelievably fast. A huge amount of time is wasted on reaching down for the knob in the stock location. Making things even better is the ability to adjust the shifter, allowing you to compensate for personal preference or different diameter steering wheels.

2) Counterweighting. It is no secret that a heavier knob is a great way to improve the smoothness of shifts. However simply sticking a weight on top of a long lever has a drawback…more mass to move in the shift. This means, more effort. The Fastline shifter places weight at an equal distance from the pivot to the shift linkage mounting, where it does the most work with the least effort. This allows you to use a light-weight Maven Aluminum or Delrin shift knob which reduces the effort needed to shift. It is the best of both worlds!

But, Fastline didn’t stop at engineering the best shifter. They also took it further by adding in the be absolute best hardware kit. Machined Delrin bushings add a crispness in movement that is unmatched by notchy-feeling bearings or squishy-feeling rubber.

Even the set screw that is included is an engineered part, featuring a toothed face that bites into the shifter base. This set screw will never come loose until you want it to!

Purchase today on http://www.heeltoeauto.com or http://www.JHPUSA.com!

Add a Maven Black Anodized or Black Delrin Shift knob to your Fastline Shifter order. These match the Fastline Shifter finish excellently and provide the most ergonomic feel of any knob on the market. It will feel better in your hand than the one you have now or we’ll buy it back*!

* Yeah that is right, if you get a Maven Shift Knob and it does not honestly feel like one of the best knobs you’ve ever held, we will buy it back from you (less shipping fees, must return within 1 week of receipt, must be in new condition).

Fastline Performance S2000 Locking Top Latch Buttons Update

Sunday, February 27th, 2011


For more details on this product, please link here: Fastline Performance Locking Top Latch Buttons, AP1/AP2 Honda S2000

The production on our S2000 Locking Top Latch buttons is progressing nicely, however we are not going to make our “end of February” shipping date. So, because of the delay we are making this posting to give and update as to where we stand now.

  • Machining the buttons: The first article samples were CNC’d last week (week of Feb the 21st). Some minor changes were made to the program and now the machining of the buttons is in full swing. We are expecting the machining to be done this coming week (March 1-3rd, something like that).
  • Anodizing: has to start after the machining is done, and will take about a week to complete.
  • Lock Cylinders: were ordered a while ago but are not in yet. We are expecting them in the next week or so, and some minor machining is needed on them as well that will happen in-house.
  • Security Screws: a vendor was found and these are on order now, to be received within about 6-7 business days (just before anodizing is done we expect).
  • Warning decal: Still being designed. The “contest” we had going on on S2KI is not really going well. We have only received 2 submissions and nether is really ready for print. We’ll have to either wait for a better design or simply make our own. Printing only takes a few days, but we are not going to worry about completing these in time to ship buttons. In all likelihood we’ll snail-mail the decals once they are done if they take longer than the buttons themselves.
  • Packaging: already ordered and received in our warehouse.

So there you have it! We are chugging along surely as ever. We’ll have these in the mail before long!

Q/A: Rusty Fastline Performance Shifter

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

We recently got this email from a customer and thought we’d share our reply, what with the recent weather situations (i.e. winter).

Hello. I purchased a fastline performance shifter for my ek civic on dec.19,2009. Order#xxxx. A while back I noticed pen dot sized rust spots on the bends of the shifter. I wiped it off and didn’t thing much of it. Well with the recent rain/moisture, I found more rust spots on the shifter, and in more spots too around the bends of the shifter. I was wondering if this is a defect is the powder coating of the shifter?

Here is our reply:

Hi there, thanks for the email! The shifters are not powder-coated. They are treated with a coating called “black oxide.” Basically, the shifters are a black -colored oxidation that resists further rusting. As you can see, the shifters are not impervious to getting rust spots from time to time. The black oxide is not worn off, but some surface spots can appear. What you want to do is treat the shifter with an oil, like WD-40 and allow it to soak into the metal. This will clear up any rusty spots you have, and will prevent more from appearing. You might need to do this once a year.

One might ask why we choose black oxide rather than powder-coating or chroming. Well, Powdercoat really doesn’t hold us as well as we like it to in this application, especially considering the tight tolerances where the two-pieces fit together. And chrome, as awesome as we have seen our samples turn out, would raise the cost of our shifters by about 10% putting them well over $199. We figure the occasional lube job is more favorable that raising the price.

First Look: Fastline Performance S2000 Top Latch Locking Button!

Friday, December 17th, 2010

Hey folks, after a number of weeks of work by our fabricator we are proud to announce that our prototype for a locking solution for the S2000 is working and looks simply amazing. This patent-pending design is about to be released to the masses!

Again, this is not a first article and is not indicative of the final design (which will have a lip of material covering all the mechanical parts and a bright-dipped anodized finish) but you can really get the idea of our product from these pics:

Here is a prototype of what you get (shown one side only, we are making parts for both sides, fyi). We are also going to toss some decals in to alert would-be thieves not to try breaking in.

Here is the prototype installed. Our part is a simple replacement of the stock latch button on your S2000's OEM latch assembly.

Installation is super simple. Two little screws and that is it! No need to remove the latch from the car either. Install should be less than 2 min a side with no alignment or fitment concerns whatsoever.

Closer view. See the little peg sticking out of the lock? That means the latch is UNLOCKED and able to be opened.

The button pushes in just like normal when unlocked.

Engage the peg in the lock...

...and now the latch is LOCKED. This is the 'normal' state of the lock, so you should never have a problem forgetting to lock it, or feel tempted to be lazy and not install it or twist the lock if you happen to take your roof down from time to time.

It is locked really solid, too. There is no wiggle/play/movement/etc. The button straight will not move! No button actuation means no getting your roof off!

High-end security key is used to unlock the button. Made of hardened steel, this isn't something that will be easily drilled out.

Here is a lame photoshop of what the final button will resemble. We left the extra material off for R&D, but the final part will be very similar looking to the stock button, just a little wider to accommodate the lock cylinder. Not ugly. Not an eyesore. Just good solid protection.
