Enjoy the immersion!
the quality is trash! the thing broke after a month of use and for the price it is very bad, i regret buying it.
SIMPLE INSTALL, SHORTENS THROW CONSIDERATBLY, Can't wait to get the "short throw plate" to go with it.
all products for this Co. are super precise and well made.
HIGHLY RECCOMEND ALL OF THESE MODS!
Thank you Miguel!
Super easy install. GREAT customer service! WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE!! Stupid US Postal service took what seemed like forever! but, not the fault
of the seller. In fact, He helped me every step of the way. SUPER responsive and launched a trace within a day after shipment stalled in US Post.
Finally shook loose and arrived. And WAS IT EVER WORTH THE WAIT. A world of difference in my shifer feel now. TRUE GATED SHIFTER FEEL at a modest price
Install videos suggest grease on the front and back of unit for installation, but, this was so percisely made I didn't need it at all!
ABSOLUTELY RIGHT ON TO THE MICRON FIT!!!
Just be SUPER careful when removing the top of your shifter under the "gate plate" as the "sequential shifter control wire" sometimes has
little to no slack to remove. I found it extermemly helpful to remove the shifter shaft when disassembling and that made thinge way easier.
SOLID PRODUCT AND GREAT CUSTOMER SUPPORT!
JUST GET ONE!
This is the single best mod that you can add to the TH8A. It totally changes the feel of the shifter. It has a nice tactile feel now when changing gears. I am using it with a short shifter mod and have not had any issues with it. Great customer service as well.
Adds a really nice mid-shift clunk that was missing from my TH8A, shifting feels more tactile and satisfying now. Great customer service too, well packaged and fast shipping.
I also got the short-throw gear-knob in black and red which is an equally terrific upgrade, feels like a race shifter now instead of a truck shifter.
Thanks Manuel keep up the great work!
I just realized that you can buy the STL file in the shop for a very fair price !!!
That gets 5 stars from me !!!
Wow, this mod is really amazing. The shifter from Thrustmaster is well enough built, but it lacks "resistance" when shifting and simply keaves you clueless every now and then.
With this addition the shifter is hugely improved, shifting now is so much more realistic. Installation is a peace of cake.
Even if it should break after some time being a 3D print I'd instantly buy a replacement !!!
Thanks guys, well done !!!
Used these to block off gates 1, 5, and 6 to get:

R 2 4
Which is as close as you can get to the old VW Beetle shift pattern (see here: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/manuals/8_61bug/08-61T1-15.jpg). I race Formula Vee in iRacing and wanted the improved realism from an accurate shift pattern.
They work great!
At first I wasn’t impressed with this product, but they worked with me and corrected the issue I had amazing customer support it works flawlessly, I can’t thank them enough.
Quickly helped me upgrade my order from the Gt v1 to V2.
Very simple and quick install.
Honestly changes everything about the TH8A. Cant recommend enough. The quality of the product is apparent, and it is very straight forward to install. Used with short shift mod and it worked perfectly without any modification.
I installed this Clixbeetle-GX on my G29, and it transformed the shifter! Feels like a real manual shifter. The resistance is perfect and the engagement is solid. Great design and product. I could not be happier. FYI, for context, I owned an E90 2008 M3, manual transmission for 4 years. Loved the car and shifter. This mod really reminds me of the feel of my BMW M3.
As my title says, definitely didn't expect it to be so tactile, compared to some other 3D printed shifter mods I've tried
Easy to install and great to see some spare parts included in case anything breaks further down the line
Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting to upgrade their G25/27/29/920 shifter
Nice piece of kit. Well designed, clean print and thoughtful to include replacement parts. I love the idea of using o-rings to take the force unlike other shifter mods on the market, very clever. Glad I managed to get one.
Having owned the V1 of the Clixbeetle GT it took zero convincing for me to buy this updated version, especially when I had just recently broke my V1 by over tightening the grub screws.
The V2 is physically bigger than the V1 and fits inside the TH8A housing with a lot finer tolerance providing a pleasant amount of resistant to sideways gear stick movement. As I found with the V1, the retaining clips are ineffective in holding the Clixbeetle down during spirited use of the shifter. This results in the entire unit gradually lifting causing the retaining clips to impact the metal gating, eventually preventing gears from being correctly selected. This problem, like with the GT V1, can be solved by looping a zip tie under the main barrel which the unit sits on top of, and securing it over the top. I thrashed the hell out of my GT V1 and the zip tie solution held out the entire time!
Each gear shift is confirmed by both of the sound and feel of the main gear shaft passing between the gated bearings, however with my GT V1 I found there to be a difference in feeling between the upper and lower gears. Thankfully the V2 improves upon its predecessor’s often uneven tactile feeling with all 8 gears feeling a lot more consistent with each other and a hell of a lot stiffer overall.
The only way the V2 could be improved (retaining clips aside) would be if it was made from aluminium (pls Nolitto3d!!) but otherwise this is an incredible and absolutely essentially addition to the TH8A.

Clixbeetle-Pro YouTube Review by Barry Rowland - Sim Racing Garage
A spring is not "just a spring"
We learnt a lot about spring design while finding the right springs for the Clixbeetle-Pro/GT/GTV2.
The springs in the Clixbeetle have been specifically designed for optimal tension to get that beautiful tactile feedback and resistance when installed in your TH8A shifter.
A big shout out to Jubilee Springs!
Great Aussie company who helped us design the springs and who also manufacture the springs for the Clixbeetle-Pro/GT/GTV2
Laser-Cut Stainless-Steel Plates
The Stainless-Steel plates in the Clixbeetle-GT/GT V2 are Laser-Cut for precision.
These plates add extra durability to the part and also allows the spring tension to be adjustable.
The Clixbeetle-GT/GTV2 is a perfect example of how it is viable to combine metal with a 3d printed part to make mechanical parts.
Install one in your TH8A shifter for greater resistance and Tactile Feedback when using the H-pattern shifter mode.
Adjust the spring tension to your preference (only in GT/GT V2)
The Clixbeetle-GT/GT V2 ball bearing spring pressure has already been calibrated for optimal
tactile feedback. You may however fine tune the pressure to your preference by following the Clixbeetle-GT Spring Pressure Adjustment guide. Be careful not to lock the springs by overtightening the grub screws though (please follow the guide to prevent damage).
