To all of you asswipes that lied. [IMG]i/expressions/moon.gif[/IMG]

If you could only see how much they don't fit together, then you would laugh your asses off. Those people that said that they had the DC Sports SS Adapter and the Revo Technica SS were BSing as well since the DC Sports SS adapter has a smaller range of adjustment than the Solo SS adapter. Anyway, take it from me... THEY DO NOT FIT TOGETHER! Get one or the other, but not both.

I didn't install it yet, I will in a little while when it's cooler. I just took out my Solo SS adapter and tried to fit it on the Revo Technica SS. No go.

Damn, that bites the big one! Well, you can sell the adapter if you like the revo better and recoupe some money. I'm very interested to see what you think of it. Let us know.

As I said, "If you could only see how much they don't fit together, then you would laugh your asses off.". I don't understand if you saw this, or if mycivic saw this? Either way, did you see it with the center console off? If so, then I'll believe it. If not, then you were fooled as well!

i have the revo/kumo combo with type r **** and yes it does rock...but my question is this...why would you think you'd need a short shift adapter with a short shifter...kinda doesn't make sense. i cant' imagine shortening the throw even more, but grey at least thanks for trying and keeping everyone informed

grey, on another note, i never used those two metal brackets on my tsunami bumper and keep wondering should i have and if so, where did you put them. also, did you do anything for a better fit around the lights..additional screws? it's just not completely flush..thanks for any info

<< why would you think you'd need a short shift adapter with a short shifter...kinda doesn't make sense. >>


Before anyone had the Revo Technica SS people thought that the Revo Technica didn't relocate the shift point. Then people started talking about using the Solo SS adapter and the Revo Technica SS because some thought you could relocate the shift point even more than have an even shorter shift. Sound in theory, but it just doesn't fit. Well, at least not without bending the Solo SS to hell. I couldn't imagine trying to do that though.



<< i never used those two metal brackets on my tsunami bumper and keep wondering should i have and if so, where did you put them. >>


The shop actually put them on. Well, they put on the ones I made. The ones that came with the bumper looked lame and week. I made my own out of thicker aluminum. The shop made holes in the thickest part of the sheet metal and through some plastic as well. It's kinda hard to describe. I think it helps to secure the bumper to the front of the car and it also kinda props it up a little.



<< also, did you do anything for a better fit around the lights..additional screws? >>


That's not where I have the fitment problems Under the lights is fine. It's on the sides that it sags a little. I'm not sure how to fix that. I think they put the grill on wrong. I'm probably going to get the RS grill later, so I might be able to improve on their work a little.

So....Grey, have you installed the revo ss yet or what? I like to hear your comparison as you own an adapter and now the complete unit.

Mbow, I have the revo, and have driven a 2k1 with the adapter and I prefer the revo hands down. smoother cleaner feel, don't know what else to say.

grey, i'll work on those brackets and actually, i have the rs grill and my fitment isn't great around the sides either(not the lights like i mentioned earlier) so i don't know if that will help

No, the KumoSport pretty much fits all aftermarket shifter upgrades.



<< So....Grey, have you installed the revo ss yet or what? I like to hear your comparison as you own an adapter and now the complete unit. >>


Yes I have, I posted a thread in the Parts and Products forum and in the Reviews forum. Check it out.

What did you do to the Tsunami T2001 so far? I had to cut out certain sections, drill out certain holes, cut out certain square holes, etc.

You'll have to do more than that. Take off the Tsunami and compare it side by side to the stock bumper. Then modify the Tsunami so that all of the edges are exactly the same. Then looks for all the holes in the stock bumper and modify the Tsunami so that it has all of the holes. It should fit very well then. Did you cut off the little tab that holds the stock horn wire that's on the windshield washer container? You should do that as well.

I still think he's BSing you. Have you seen it first hand without the center console? I think that the DC Sports SS adapter is a tighter fit than the Solo, so now way it's fitting.

Hey Grey!!![IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG] Dude ease up woth words. Nobody is BSing.... anyway I can imagine that u r pissed since your adapter did not fit the SS, but hell yeah I will take some pics to show you - first i will have buy the digital camera-. My Adapter fitted almost perfectly, there was a small gab between the adapter and the SS but little hummer action solved the problem[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]. Let me see the pics if u have any and i will get mine asap. Peace out dude [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

im with the other member on this thread...why would you need both? I have the Neuspeed adapter, and my shifting is damn fast. The only thing that is slowin me down is how fast i snap my foot to engage the clutch, and release the clutch. Thats damn fast for me. So, its not the throw of the ****, its the throw of the clutch pedel, but even that doesnt slow me down any. I think its almost a waste to get both, if you cant opporate your clutch and your stick together with just one to get those super fast snaps, then go ahead and get both, but i know how to drive my stick shift, so im gonna save $100.
Sorry, dont mean to come off all bad, like im the best driver around, i know im not. Dont mean to offend anyone who has both of them either. Thats just my 2 cents, thats all.
Later

MyCivic: Seriously? What do you mean by "hummer action"? [IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG] That sounds funny. Anyway, I thought that the Solo SS adapter had more space for adjustment than the DC Sports SS adapter? At least that's what it looked like from all of the pictures I have seen on the net. Isn't the pivot point so high up now that the cable is very very tight? I think this might cause the cable to start to cut through it's liming as you shift. Anyway, if you've got it then post pics. I'm getting a digicam in not too long as well, so I'll be posting pics of mine soon. No harsh words from me regarding the DC Sports SS adapter. Only on the Solo SS adapter. I'm just curious about the DC Sports being able to fit since my Solo had no way in hell of fitting.
