HomeProductsSequential Paddle Shifters

The MasterShift™ Sequential Shifter enables you to shift your sequential transmission while leaving your hands on the steering wheel. It provides a quick and reliable electronically controlled shift. The shifter unit is coupled to the transmission through a standard shift cable, just like the manual shift lever; this makes installation quick and easy.


Basic Sequential Shifting

Basic shifting is simple: just hit the shift buttons or paddles, and the MasterShift™ Sequential Shifter will push or pull the shift cable, as you would have done manually before you had it.

Supported Sequential Transmissions:

The MasterShift™ Sequential Shifter currently supports most sequential transmissions, including but not limited to:  Fortin, Albins, and Mendeola sequential transmissions. Other similar transmissions may be supported.

  • Mendeola models S4, S5, S4D, S5D, and HD4
  • Fortin models FRS 4, FRS 5, FRS 6
  • Albins AGB-SS5



Requirements:

  • Vehicle with a supported sequential transmission. Currently supported are:
  1. Albins AGB-SS5
  2. Fortin models FRS 4, FRS 5 and FRS 6
  3. Mendeola models S4, S5, S4D, S5D and HD4

 

  • PC with a standard serial port, running a supported version of Microsoft Windows.
  • Remark Industries Fortin or Mendeola Sequential Gear Display (can be ordered together with your Sequential Shifter) or the factory Albins or Fortin gear indicator.

Sequential Shifter Features

1. Short Shift to Neutral
Some transmissions have their neutral gear between the first and second gears; it can be reached with a shorter shift than normally. The MasterShift™ Sequential Shifter supports such transmissions.

2.Clutchless Shifting

The EMS Control output can be connected to an engine management system ( EMS ), to request a torque reduction before and during the shift movement. Torque reduction can be achieved for example by limiting the fuel supply, changing the ignition timing, or limiting the engine rotation. The Sequential Shifter activates the output a short time before the shift movement, giving the engine time to actually reduce the torque on the transmission, and deactivates it immediately after the shift, so that the engine again supplies full torque.

a. Note: Support with all engine management systems cannot be guaranteed. Most often the engine management system will need to be specially setup to work with the MasterShift. Certain Delphi engine management systems even require an auxiliary pin to be wired to the outside plug.

b. Caution: You will need to setup the pre-shift delay time if you are to use the MasterShift to do clutchless upshifts. Due to variances in motors, transmissions, and driving styles, you may need to spend some time configuring this value to an optimal level. Clutchless shifting cannot be guaranteed to work in all driving conditions and may need to be setup multiple times for variances in wheel types, terrain, and other variables. A wrong value can lead to transmission damage over time

3. Neutral Safety
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 shift safety button) are now safeguarded from shifting into neutral. (This works a bit differently with transmissions that have their neutral gear between the first and second gear and require a special short shift for a shift into neutral.

4. Clutch Safety
When the clutch safety feature is enabled, the driver is not allowed to shift from neutral into first gear without pressing the clutch, and the clutch is also required for all downshifts. The purpose of this feature is to prevent shift attempts in situations when normally the clutch pedal should be pressed

5. Reverse Safety

Reverse safety has two different modes of operation, depending on your transmission:

a. Transmissions without a reverse gear in the normal shift lever shift sequence (Mendeola): The MasterShift™ Sequential Shifter will not attempt any shift movements while the transmission is in reverse gear, as indicated by a closed reverse gear switch.

b. Transmissions with a reverse gear in the normal shift lever shift sequence (Albins, Fortin): When the reverse safety switch is enabled, the MasterShift™ Sequential Shifter requires that the shift safety push-button, or shift safety delay, is used when shifting into reverse gear.

Sequential Paddle Shifter Kit

Sequential transmission conversion kit for Mendeola, Fortin and Albins. USB to serial adapter will be needed. (P/N MS-0004)
OUR ONLINE SHOPPING CART WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON IN THE MEAN TIME PLEASE CALL 1-888-658-2727 TO PLACE  YOUR ORDER
The Mastershift™ Sequential Shifter Kit is able to shift almost any cable driven transmission! Any transmission that is not cable shifted will need to check below for hardware that will convert your transmission to be cable shifted. Below are the lists of all the options available for our sequential shifter kits.

*Please do not attempt to purchase any of the options below without the Sequential Shifter kit as they will not work as stand alone items! Unless you already have our shifter kits, the below options will not shift your transmission alone.
