Paddleshift kit – Porsche 997 CUP
This truly plug and play kit will convert the manual sequential 997 CUP gearbox (G97) to a Paddle operated system! Drivers’ hands can stay on the steering wheel, and clutch usage during race is no longer needed, due to the clutch-less shift system. These benefits will result in quicker and more constant lap times during the race. Another major advantage is the reduction of gearbox wear.
Plug and play
KMP has developed a ‘Plug and play’ Porsche paddleshift kit. All components are designed to fit directly into a Porsche 996/997 CUP car. It is not needed to design brackets, solder cables or to do any kind of engineering. The motorsport quality wiring harness can be connected straight into the existing Porsche harness. Due to the plug and play method, it is very easy to take out the system and restore the car in original state.
The paddleshift kit also includes a communication cable and user friendly software. After installation, a KMP support engineer can remotely log in and do the initial paddleshift setup together with you or your mechanic.
Most systems are installed with a gearbox mounted shift cylinder, so the gear lever can be removed. The R-N-1 safety is set by the clutch pressure. It is only possible to shift to N or 1st when the clutch is pressed. If preferred, the shift cylinder can be mounted on the gear lever as well. With this setup it is still possible to manually shift gears as well.
