USP Motorsports - Never Miss A Gear Kit! (08-14 A3)
SKU: 5598 USP Motorsports
USP Motorsports has teamed up with Torque Solution to bring you the ultimate shifting upgrade package. If you are tired of missing gears or even worse, grinding gears, this kit is for you. USP carefully examined the external transmission components and identified all of its weaknesses.
USP identified the shifter cable end link bushings, shifter cable bracket mounts, and the hydraulic clutch line as the weak links. From here, USP and Torque Solution Engineers teamed up to design and produce the highest quality replacement parts. Below is an overview of the “Never Miss A Gear Kit”:
1. The Clutch Line
The factory clutch lines is a flexible rubber which results in significant expansion, especially under track/race conditions and even during daily driving with an upgraded clutch kit. USP developed a complete replacement line that eliminates the factory rubber line and replaces it with a high pressure stainless steel, PTFE Teflon lined hose. This leaves no room for expansion even under the harshest conditions.
2. The Shifter Cable Mount Bushings
The factory shifter cable mount uses soft rubber bushings in between the transmission and the cable mount. These rubber bushings allow significant movement in the shifter cable mount, resulting in missed gears and a “sloppy feeling”. USP once again teamed up with Torque Solution and created new cable mount bushing utilizing the same Delrin compound used in the shifter cable bushing. Once installed the Delrin bushings provide a solid platform for the shifter cable bracket and zero movement.
3. The Shifter Cable Bushing
The factory shift cable end links utilize a floating design supported on two sides with a rubber bushing. This design offers an extreme amount of movement which results in a “sloppy “ feeling shifter which leads to miss shifting under extreme conditions.
USP worked with Torque Solution and came up with a unique Delrin bushing to replace the factory rubber bushing. Brass and aluminum bushings were used early in the development phase but it quickly became clear Delrin was the only material that offered the correct combination of performance and reliability.
