ZF S6-40 Shifter Options:
1990-1994 ZR-1 and 1989-1994 baseline manual 6-speed Corvette are
equipped with lift-ring shifter. The lift-ring type shifter has an external
reverse lock-out mechanism physically disallowing entry into reverse gear
neutral gate until the lift-ring is pulled upwards. Due to the fact that the ZF
S6-40 reverse gear is fully synchronized and that it is possible to engage
reverse gear at 80 mph… just one time, it is advised that the reverse gear
select lockout feature not be defeated. Typical
reverse gear repair cost is $1300 with labor and shipping included.
1995 ZR-1 and 1995-1996 baseline manual ZF 6-speed Corvette are equipped with
crash-thru shifter. The crash-thru type shifter requires additional force while
shift lever travels rightward through reverse neutral gate giving a tactile
feedback warning to the operator that reverse gear is about to be engaged.

Modification to either type gear shift lever entails removing 1.100 inch from above the fulcrum (pivot) point and adding 0.562 inch below the fulcrum point.
