The Hybrid Racing cables are a performance upgrade replacement for stock OEM cables. The solid rod ends, 30% thicker cable core and spherical bearings give the Hybrid Racing cables a firmer, tighter feel over OEM cables resulting in fewer missed shifts and a more connected feel to the chassis.
Other notable features of the Hybrid Racing cables are spherical bearings, stainless steel push rods, and upgraded stainless steel swivel support tubes (oem are plastic) that are known to break on the OEM cables. All of the rod ends, and mounting bushings are CNC machined 6061 aluminum that have been heat treated and coated with a black hard anodized before being laser etched with the Hybrid Racing logo and flair.

Vehicle application: 02-06 RSX (5/6spd) and K-swap vehicles using a K20A/A2/A2/Z1 transmission w/RSX shifter box.
Are these cables a direct replacement for my OEM RSX style cables?
Yes! For RSX Chassis the only extra work that is needed will be to retrofit the original cable gromment onto thew new HR cables. For K-Swap applications they run outside the car so no RSX grommet is neccesary. The OEM cable that controls the right/left motion of the shifter has been upgraded from a plastic twist-lock bushing to aluminum bushings and spring clip. This aluminum bushing simplifies installation a bit, but more importantly, it gets rid of yet another plastic part that tends to flex on the OEM cables, leading to a sloppy feeling shift. The extra spring clip that you will need to install the Hybrid Racing cables is included with the cables, so you will not need to buy any other parts. An easy to follow installation tips sheet is included with each set of cables to make installation as worry free as possible.
Additional K-swap Notes:
If you are using the Hybrid Racing cables on an OEM-style shifter mounted to a Karcepts adapter plate in a K-Swap chassis, you will need to widen the hole for the cable that is controlled by the front/back motion of the shifter where it goes through the Karcepts adapter plate. The hole needs to be widened to approximately 3/4" diameter. A stepped drill bit works well for doing this.
What is included with these shifter cables?
The kit comes with two shifter cables; each shifter cable set includes two cotter pins, clips for the shifter end, and transmission selector lever springs. The upgraded gear selector springs aren't required but are recommended to further improve the feel of your gear changes
