Rogue Engineering OCTANE E9X M3 SSK
MFG PN OCT_E9X_M3




We at Sonic MS are proud to present the Ultimate Short Shift Kit available on the market today for your E9X M3.

The Components
Detailed Technical Overview

A. 6061-T6 ACQ Billet Carrier - Painstakingly CNC machined from a block of aluminum about the size of a brick, this carrier has incredible strength and rigidity over a stock component. It incorporates Rogue Engineering's Pivot Relocation Cup, to raise the pivot point of the shifter higher, allowing the shifter more drivetrain clearance. For additional strength, the rear of the carrier has a steel spike to secure to the mounting point of the vehicle. An important feature is that it realigns the selector rod so that it is near the factory position, preventing off-axis forces against the transmission's selector rod gear joint, preventing shifting notchiness. If you wonder why Rogue Engineering's shifters have always been the SMOOTHEST shifters on the market, this is one of many small details which allow many of our customers to recognize the ingenuity of RE OCTANE SSKs. The carrier comes complete with custom Delrin carrier bushings, eliminating excessive carrier movement as a result of the factory rubber bushings.

B. The Shifter Lever - RE's OCTANE shifter lever may seem like the same lever they use in their other kits, but at a closer glance, you will see that it incorporates a double bend, to emulate the factory shifter lever. In essence, the top of the factory lever is moved backwards, approximately 1/2 from the axis of the lower part of the shifter. Other companies have made the mistake of only bending the top of another factory lever backwards, hoping to solve this ergonomic challenge. However, bending the top of the lever back only tips the shift knob towards the driver, and does not emulate the factory position accurately.



Shift throws are reduced noticeably, with a 3rd to 4th throw distance of approximately 98mm (3.85") when using the factory shift knob. RE utilizes the use of the Ertalyte TX pivot point, machined from solid Ertalyte TX rod, to exacting specifications. In developmental testing, RE's pivot has been shown to be 41% smoother than a stock pivot and an alarming 200% smoother than another aftermarket company's shifter. Small details such as these add up in the long run.




C. Rogue Engineering's Self-Adjusting Pivot Point (SAPP) - RE's simple and effective method of lowering the pivot tension control maintains reliability, durability, and longevity. Just ask the 50% of the Grand Am Koni Challenge teams racing with Rogue Engineering shifters in their cars.

D. Weighted Selector Rod (WSR) - RE replaces the hollow, factory selector rod with a heavier, TIG welded, stainless steel replacement. This adds additional mass, over the press-tube construction of the factory part. This helps the shifts in the vehicle feel factory smooth, while allowing for the reduced throws. RE's WSR is twice the mass of the factory part (factory is 120g, ours is 245g).

E. Replacement OEM Parts - RE utilizes factory replacement pivot cups and locking circlips to secure the shifter together. These are the same components used in all current model BMWs.

Bundle these parts together, and you have a cohesive SSK that reduces throws, corrects the factory ergonomics, but also eliminates the factory shifter sloppiness that should have never been in your E9X M3 in the first place.

I'd like to hear some real world experiences with this..I had the UUC SSK + DSSR for the 335i and it was "oook"..didnt hardly throw shorter at all.. just made shifts feel more mechanical

How's this compare to that..I was going to just use a shorter ZHP weighted shift knob and call it a day..prices + labor on these SSKs are steep.

Thoughts?

I used the Rouge SSK on my M3 and i can tell the shorter throw and it doesn't fell notchy as other kit out there. Shifting is more precise and i like the overall feel.
