I have close contact with Hybrid Racing through a good friend of mine. He was building a few projects with them during the time they test fitted their prototype on my car.

I have moved since then, but he contacted me recently wanting a friend of mines number who also owns a CR-Z that currently lives there. I think he's gonna be the next guinea pig for the shifter because they were asking if I may have knew of anyone else with a manual CR-Z.

I will contact him tomorrow to see what's going on with it.

hmmmmmmm.....I have only put 900mi on my Z in a year due to having a "daily" work truck that I drive. I could send my car down there to be in their hands while they test the shifter. Only thing is it might be for a short term. I work for a large construction company and I move quite often...my current date of availability to move from this project is the end of March, and I will stuff my car to the gills with things I need for the next project. Might end up in Louisiana anyway on an LNG plant build.

But anyway, I am probably willing to give the car up in order to get this thing going. If anyone with a contact can let me know what they need that would be great.

I just shot HR a message to hear if they still need a test vehicle. It seems like they are making progress!

This is the latest:
Yes, we have been in contact with a local customer that let us use their car. Since the CRZ shifter and the new FK8 shifter will have a lot of the same parts, we are just finalizing a few more things before we are ready for the next stage.

Alright guys. I got an update from my friend back at home. He went to Hybrid Racing in December and had them do some more testing with their prototype.

He said everything lined up, but they want to do a little more tweaking. They are aiming for production early this year. They want to drop it along side their Type R shifter because they use similar parts, so makes sense why they are waiting.

Here's a few images.

Here's the latest from Hybrid Racing, for those who haven't seen the FB post.

Here are some new shots of the HR CR-Z shifter assembly. Currently testing pre-production versions. The colors and finishes are not final, the overall look may change slightly. Anyone that is interested in getting on the pre-order list please contact us: [email protected]. You'll be put on a waiting list. Once we have all of the final information, price, ship date, etc, you will get a message first. I've been testing a similar version in my FK8 and it's epic to say the least. #hybridracing

I messaged Hybrid Racing. It seems that they will open pre-orders for the FK8 shifter first, then open pre-orders for our shifter sometime in June. Time to start saving up :beer:
Still looking at the $380 target, or has that adjusted some? Asking for a friend. :smile2:
