What gear shifter does Dominic Toretto use in Fast X ?
In the 2023 movie Fast X Dominic Toretto ( Vin Diesel) is using an S1 Sequntial shifter in his 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. This shifter converts the standard h pattern shift of the Tremec Magnum 6 speed transmission to Sequential shift allowing for quick shifts without missing gears. These are available from s1sequential.com
We have some great upgrades coming out at the moment for the direct mount shifters, the first of which is the ‘Left lever” variant. This will give much better fitment in some left hand drive cars. This is avalable for all direct mount sequential shifters:
One of the great features of our “toploader ” sequential shifter is that its easily adapted all other 4 speed transmissions with external linkages on the left side by changing only shift rod lengths and the shift arms on the box. We now in the process of prototyping the arms to suit the gforce tex racing 101 box.
In the world of social media this discussion often comes up with internet experts trying to tell us our shifters are not a true sequential. Well the hard fact is that our shifters are as sequential as they can possibly be, the definition of sequential is for it to be in order. A sequential gearbox is not necessarily a dog box and a dog box is not necessarily sequential, the internal engagement method is unrelated to the shift pattern. Our sequential shifters work great with dog or synchro gears.
