Default Re: E shift ?

Here`s a question. Would a late 60`s or early 70`s big or small block car be legal to run e-shift?

The easy answer is no

Pneumatic, hydraulic, electric, etc. controls and shifters in all noncomputer (older car like mine) -controlled electronic-fuel-injected(car without a solenoid shifted transmission FROM THE FACTORY) vehicles prohibited

That's what I figured. Policing that will be as easy as policing Stick racers not using a clutch at each shift. Pretty much another rule that will affect no one.

Easy to see that air ram cylinder on the shifter, and a CO2, or compressed air, bottle.

So the way I read this, if you run a solenoid controlled transmission in your COPO or Cobra Jet "stocker", the computer can shift it for you but if you run a Powerglide or C4, you have to shift it manually. Agree???

Hi Jim, that sounds about right. Also, I think that if it's done internally then it's OK just nothing external.

Guys, a friend just sent me this.

The ultimate shifter for those who are scared to take one hand off the steering wheel while doing those huge Stocker wheelstands.
It's a bit pricey, but hey, after installing the wheelie bars, racing seats, aluminum radiators and water pumps, roller rockers, aftermarket rods, etc. , all in the name of safety, might as well go all the way.
It's your life .

Don't you think they are referring to computer controlled transmissions? Not all EFI vehicles came with computer controlled transmissions.

I don't know.
Maybe we're missing a comma or something there?

Maybe they need to proof read better. Logic tells me that was what they meant.
EFI came in the Camaro/Firebird/Corvette in 1984, the 4L60E trans in 1994, & the 1993 model GM trucks.

But, I agree with letting anything have it.
I promise you, if I miss on the setup, and mine needs to shift to second while straight up in the air, I don't want to be reaching for the shifter. That stuff looks cool, but mine is quicker if I can get the front end down by 60'. Not as much fun, but.....
