Short Shift Lever Type

What the classic product starts, the GeniusPack2 completes in a significantly discounted combo kit. Included is the world famous SmartShift2 linkage system, ShortShift2 or ShortShift3 adjustable short throw lever, Base Rebuild, and orange Relay Shaft Bushing.

Every last part is included to complete installation in an A2/A3 chassis car with rod-shift transmission. (This includes all Golf II and Jetta II 4-cylinder cars except for PG engine code. G60 and VR6-powered cars are equipped with cable-shifted transmissions.) Further procedure details are found on this excellent SmartShift DIY page.

The linkage system in these vehicles is nothing short of a modern wonder. It is truly mind-boggling that they can become so loose and sloppy and yet still allow gear selection. See this customer-contributed video for ample evidence. Is it a cruel joke that you're the only person on Earth who knows how to drive your car? Actually, you're not alone. Replace your worn out parts with a SmartShift kit and feel the difference! You'll be amazed. We promise.

Went all out to replace every shifting component, glad I did. Much better feel, no more missed gears, no more slop, much firmer feel, & shorter throw. Was pretty easy to install, after a few minor adjustments, it would go into gear like butter. Have yet to need to make anymore adjustments, just clean & lube every once awhile. A must if you want to rid of the OEM parts.

I installed the GeniusPack2 a couple weeks ago. I absolutely love it. The fit and finish is top notch. The shifts are precise and accurate. -absolutely no slop. Scott was on top of answering all questions. I couldn't be happier with the product or the customer service of this company. Thank you, Scott, and everyone else at USRT.

I bought the Geniuspack2 Master Kit as a replacement to my tired and worn out OE linkage. I wanted to give it some time before doing a write up on it. A solid year has now gone by. I am very pleased to say that this product feels not only better than stock but has maintained that feel for a year and counting! Thats 4 seasons of climate and weather change. I haven't had to do anything maintenance wise with it whatsoever! If you have an 020 and want to get the very most out of your mechanical linkage, you need this product!

I just finished installing the GeniusPack2 Kit I ordered from you guys. It's absolutely the best mod I've made to that vehicle by far! Fit and finish on all components was superb! My car is an entirely different animal now Thanks!

I ordered this product for my track/weekend driver car because I had shifting issues while pushing it on the track. After reading a few reviews from the Vortex (and a good 30 min talk with Scott of USRT), I decided this was what I needed. The kit came very fast and looked great right out of the package. -definitely well-made stuff. So that evening I put on just the shift weight which was noticeably heavier then the weighted VW shift rod I had (close to a pound). Then, I drove around for a bit. Per discussion with Scott, I went at it with a 1 piece at a time approach. This seemed to be the best way to have it adjust right. This went well for the shift rod part. To do anything else, I had to go all in. I'm pretty good with stuff like this. So, with hack saw in hand, I worked my way through the linkage and all was well. The whole job took me about 2 hours. I've been told this was a bit faster then most (over achiever). With one small adjustment to the linkage after all was installed, th
