Paddle Shift Your Manual, Automatic and Sequential Transmission!

The Mastershift™ Manual Shifter enables you to shift your manual H-pattern transmission while leaving your hands on the steering wheel.  It provides a quick and reliable electronically controlled movement of the transmission shift shaft.

The shifter unit is coupled to the transmission through two shift cables and a transmission adapter; this makes installation quick and easy.

Basic Manual Shifting

Basic shifting is simple: just hit the shift buttons or paddles, press the clutch pedal, and the MasterShift™ Manual Shifter will push or pull the shift cables to place the shift shaft in the requested position, as you would have done manually before you had it. It is also possible to “stack” multiple shifts by pressing the paddle or button several times before pressing the clutch pedal. The Manual Shifter will then move straight to the requested target gear position.

Supported Manual Transmissions:

The MasterShift™ Manual Shifter supports Tremec TKO, Tremec T-56, Tremec TR-3650, RBT-5 (formally the ZF), RBT-6 and also the C5/C6/Z06!

Requirements:

  • A vehicle with a MasterShift™ hardware supported H-pattern transmission, or a currently cable shifted transmission. Currently supported transmissions and transaxles are above.
  • A PC with a standard serial port, running a supported version of Microsoft Windows

Manual Shifter Features

1. Delayed Shifting
Pressing the clutch pedal is necessary for the shift to happen, so the Manual Shifter waits with the shift until the clutch pedal is pressed. This feature can be used for delayed shifting. For example, you can drive into a curve, anticipating that you will have to shift down into second gear. You press the paddles the required number of times, and no shifting will occur until you press the clutch pedal. If you don’t press the clutch pedal for a configurable amount of time, the Manual Shifter cancels the shift.
      
2. Neutral Safety
When the Neutral Safety feature is enabled, a safety push-button, or safety delay must be pressed every time the driver wants to shift from first gear into neutral. The purpose of this feature is to prevent accidental shifts into neutral gear during normal driving. Multiple presses of the downshift button or paddle (without pressing the neutral safety button) are now safeguarded to not shift into neutral.
    
3. Reverse Safety
When the Reverse Safety feature is enabled, the safety switch, or safety delay must be pressed every time the driver wants to shift into reverse gear. The purpose of this feature is to prevent accidental shifts into reverse gear while the car is moving forward. It serves a similar purpose as the mechanical locks many H-pattern transmissions have on their shift sticks.
      
4. Clutch Safety
The Clutch Safety feature makes sure the Manual Shifter does not attempt to shift while the clutch pedal is not pressed. This is required for all standard manual H-pattern transmissions, and is not configurable. Required for this feature is a switch that is closed or opened when the clutch pedal is pressed. It may also be possible to use an inline hydraulic pressure switch.

5. OneWire™
The paddle shifter with OneWire board is to be used on vehicles with aftermarket steering wheels that have a horn wire that runs down the steering column of their vehicle. The OneWire system eliminates the need to run wires down your steering column and thus makes installation easy and painless.
