Sometimes the best design is the simplest. Now available in Black, the B&M Z-Gate shifter is a great example of that. It has the fewest moving parts of any automatic shifter in the B&M line and its patented internal "Z" shaped gate eliminates the possibility of over-shifting or missing gears. It has many of the same great features of higher priced shifters, and a PVD (physical vapor deposition) aka thin-film coating. It also includes a neutral safety switch, backup light switch, black T-Handle and fits most popular 3-speed and some 4-speed automatic transmission applications. The Reverse lockout meets NHRA and IHRA requirements.Features:

  • Meets NHRA and IHRA Reverse Lockout Requirements
  • Includes Neutral Safety and Backup Light Switch Switch for added safety options
  • Base can be trimmed to Fit the Floor allowing multiple applications
  • Smooth Shifting Z-Gate system eliminates the possibility of over-shifting and missing gears
  • Stealthy Black Finish to blend with dark colored interiors
  • Over 65 Years of B&M Quality provides a "peace of mind" purchase
  • Universal 3 & 4-speed Compatible Shifter

About B&M Racing

B&M Racing has been at the forefront of the automotive aftermarket since the early 1950s. Its founders, who are racers themselves, identified the needs of racing/performance enthusiasts and fabricated products to fill those needs. This includes shifters, coolers, transmission pans, differential covers, performance transmissions, and more! To this day, B&M Racing remains at the vanguard of the aftermarket world, leading and setting new standards through its consistent development of cutting-edge products. The brand is dedicated to addressing the ever-changing needs of vehicles and consumer demands, whether it is for racing, everyday use, recreational use, or for mere upgrade purposes. No matter the application, B&M Racing offers quality reliable products that get the job done.

B&M Racing recently discovered several fields in the off-road market that it felt needed more attention – particularly in the UTV area. And so, B&M Racing joined forces with industry-leading Flowmaster to form the XDR Off-Road Group. Together, they released a number of gated shifters, exhausts, and accessories for highly popular vehicles like the Can-Am Mavericks, Polaris RZRs, Yamaha YXZ1000s, and Textron Wildcat XXs.

B&M Racing’s Many Inventions

It was B&M who came up with the idea to use a performance reinforced Hydramatic for racing in the 1950s. Then in the 1960s, it was B&M who developed shifters and race converters to accompany it. In the 1970s, B&M Racing debuted its shift and transmission improving kits. As racing and street performance increased worldwide, B&M Racing used its extensive experience and know-how and applied it to the needs of everyday drivers, racers, and gearheads around the globe. The company takes pride in being among the very first to identify a vehicle’s needs in the aftermarket and supply car enthusiasts with exactly what they need to succeed.
