Universal paddleshift system
The paddleshift system is originally designed as a universal pneumatic shifting system for sequential gearboxes. The drivers’ hands can stay on the steering wheel during the shift and there is no need for using the clutch or heel-and-toe. The system will control each shift with high precision.
The GCU (Gearbox control unit) is a sophisticated stand-alone controller with user friendly software. KMP has developed a compact central unit which holds the GCU, 800cc accumulator, pressure relief valve, pressure sensor and three valves (Up, down, blip). If the car has Electronic throttle (E-gas), and it is possible to use electronic blip, there will only be two valves in the central unit. The shift cylinder can be mounted directly on the gearbox or on the gear lever. The standard cylinder has a stroke of 50mm, but there are many different shift cylinders available. In case of cable operated throttle, there is a pedal mounted or throttle body mounted blip cylinder available.
Four different options
Besides the E-gas/cable operated throttle blip, there are two different kits available. The ready-to-install kit holds all necessary parts to install the paddleshift kit. The goodridge air hosing with adapters, high-spec wiring harness (Deutsch connectors and DR-25 sleeving with moulded boots), sandwich plate with 4 free to use buttons, paddles and curly cable and all necessary brackets are included in the ready-to-install kit. If you want to source your own mounting parts, we have ‘hardware only’ kit available as well. This kit includes the central unit, compressor, shift cylinder, blip cylinder and two paddles.
