Forbidden Short Shifter Update

This is directly from Forbidden:





Hey everyone! Just wanted to send everyone an update on the progress of the 97-01 Prelude short shifter.

As of last week I gave the go ahead to build 2 prototypes of the shifter. Designs came back good so I wanted to get something in my hand soon to start testing. One shifter will be getting installed in a local 5gen owners Prelude and the other will be shipped out shortly after to one lucky 5gen owner to do some testing with and provide feedback.

No pricing has been set yet because we are not yet to the production of the final unit. Once this becomes available I will let everyone know. Due to the demand for the product I will hopefully be able to do a very large initial run to cut down on costs. Which leads me to the next thing...

Please help spread the word! Whether it be by word of mouth or letting others know around the internet on message forums and such...any help is appreciated! I know everyone has been waiting on this for a long time and some might have thought it was never going to get done (including me!), but we're very close and I can't spread the word without everyones help.

So thanks for signing up on the site and please link others there to be notified of updates also!

P.S. - Is anyone aware of a company that successfully designed a cooling plate for the 5gen?

Next update I got today:


Just a quick update for everyone-

The prototypes had a delay due to waiting on some stainless parts from overseas that ended up not working out. The rest of the parts are ready to go, so as soon as the ball comes in we're waiting for, the prototypes will be finished and begin testing.

I wanted to thank everyone for helping spread the word about these 5gen shifters. After my last email I saw many threads online about it posted by people who received the email, so thank you for that! It is greatly appreciated!

Sorry for the short update, but wanted to let everyone know that things are still moving forward.

Thanks,

Jeremy Lockhart

I will not buy from the guy directly as he is an ass. Worst business person I have ever dealt with. For that PISS on his product and him. I would NEVER recommend doing any sort of business with him even if he does have the best thing since sliced bread.

There is a much longer story but that is the short of it.

I like my Lean-Racing one just fine anyways.

hey wasn't there a company that bought your shifter and either made it into their short shifter or sent you a new one? is it this company? i got a 4th gen shifter and im wondering if they would do that with a 4th gen one though..... doubt it but its worth asking i suppose.

Deal with him if you wish to wait. If you except to hear from him when you email him, good luck. The guy has no communication skills at all.

He is an ass and would never recommend dealing with him. I know alot of other people who feel the same way as me. They would buy a used one but will not deal with him directly for a new one.

I've heard similar horror stories about him, not on this site specifically but I've heard similar stories on different sites. And Mike, I think you are the only person I know of that has a Lean-Racing shifter anymore, didn't they stop making them? Damn shame if you ask me, if anyone sees a Lean-Racing short shifter for sale, or is selling there old one, let me know!

Don't get me wrong, I would also buy a USED P-Spec. I tried to deal with the guy through a group buy that he set up on H-T.

I put my $100.00 down as he said to do. Never said what to do about the remainder. Over a month go by. In tht time I sent 7 emails. No response. So I file with paypal against him. Well that finally got his attention. He did send my money back along with a really nasty note. Finally a response but not the way to do it.

There are other stories people have told me as well as my personal account.

He was awesome when I dealt with him. He answered all my questions and even sent me a letter thanking me for the interest in his products after I bought everything he makes. You won't find a better shifter...
