How to Shift a Hurst Quarter Stick Shifter

By: Hurst | 04/13/2017 < Back to Motor Life Home

The Hurst Quarter Stick is considered the purest form of race shifter. This shifter was designed for the people that wanted a no-compromise, lightweight and compact shifter for 2 and 3-speed automatic transmissions in forward and reverse valve body shift patterns. The one-hand operated, spring loaded, reverse "Loc/Out" mechanism meets NHRA and IHRA technical requirements and enables drivers to clear the reverse lockout while remaining strapped into their shoulder harness belts. These features, along with the fact that it is extremely compact and lightweight for tight-fit cockpit installation, have made the Quarter Stick immensly popular with race car drivers.

If you have a rear-engine dragster, the Quarter Stick 2 would be your best shifter choice. It has the same mechanism as the Quarter Stick but with a rear cable exit. This allows for easier installation, positive shifts, and a lower probability of cable binding.
