FAQs - General
What can I do if Pro-Shift do not have a bespoke System already developed for my specific vehicle?
Why choose Paddle-Shift over manual shift?
Paddle-Shift not only allows gearshifts to be made far more quickly and clutchlessly with full throttle, it also allows the driver to keep both hands on the wheel, both eyes on the road and provides them with much more time to concentrate on their driving.
Is it kind to Gearboxes?
Yes, the very nature of electronic solenoid gearshift operation is such that it delivers a rising power curve from it's "rest position" thus providing natural compliance with gearbox dogs/dog rings.
Do Pro-Shift supply Systems to foreign countries?
Why choose Electronic over Air?

Can I try a semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift before I purchase one?
Yes. We would be happy to take you out for a demonstration ride in our road legal Radical SR3.
Can I use the semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift in conjunction with my manual gear lever?
Yes. With the Pro-Shift System installed you can use either the steering wheel mounted paddles to change gear or your standard manual gear lever at any time. Both methods are completely interchangeable at all times.
Does Paddle-Shift change gear faster than manual shifting?
Yes. In a recent Dynojet Dyno test the Pro-Shift semi automatic electronic System was 1.2 seconds quicker than the base clutchless manual run with only 4 upshifts.
How often should the semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift be serviced?
Is Paddle-Shift reliable?
Yes, with over 18 years of top level racing development behind it the semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift is the culmination of all this work and effort. With only one moving part and tested to over half a million gearshifts we are hugely proud of our reliability record.
Will Paddle-Shift allow me to drive completely clutchlessly?
Yes. The semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift provides clutchless upshifting as standard and with the integration of the Auto-Blip Downshift Module, downshifting will also be clutchless. The clutch will only be needed when pulling away and coming to a complete stop.
