Default A revolution in SHIFTING


Altronics Inc introduces "SHIFT" a revolutionary shifting system! This system replaces conventional shift linkages, shift cables, CO2 bottles, shift solenoids, and RPM boxes with one integrated, safe, reliable, and simple to use system.




The unit currently used in our Super Stock test vehicle for the last two seasons was first shifted repeatedly over 35,000 (thirty five thousand) times on actual test fixtured transmission before being put directly into vehicle.

Click here for demo video of SHIFT->


Check out our website for more info -> http://www.AltronicsInc.com

Look forward to hearing your feedback and questions on this system!

I don't understand what your question is referring to?

And why are tracks having problems finding new blood to enter into a dying game???????????????

We need to start eliminating push button / electronic devices altogether. This kind of crap is totally ridiculous.

I can't imagine this selling well unless you're a high end SSer or Comp racer with no expense spared

Not sure I agree with that. Carburetors are out, fuel injection is in. New blood wants computers. Every new car has fuel injection and an electronic controlled transmission not the 30 year old technology that is in most of Drag Racing today. Can't imagine to many 18 years old being interested in a carburetor.

High end? SHIFT will retail in the $600 range. Figure out how much a good conventional shifter, CO2 bottle, rpm controller will set you back?

Thanks for your input though!

Does it work with a 16 or higher voltage system?

Wondering if you have explored that for manual transmissions and along the way getting NHRA to accept one.

For sure! That is what I run and we also manufacture the PowerLite Lithium 16 volt batteries if your interested.

12 or16 volt, works exactly the same with either!

I think lack of new blood is more from lack of them not wanting to do anything that requires effort or work.
Shift in my opinion would be what new blood would want.,it is technolgy,looks like you would use your thumbs as they do texting.

Looks like good ideal and neat product, but not for me,I'll keep banging gears as long as I'm racing.
Hope you sell alot of them.

fred--interesting gadget---coupla ???? I see ya are using it with a Stef"s DEEP pan how well does it fit with
A) a standard depth pan ?
B) any type of a Trans shield it appears you have NONE in the demo film?
C) is it N/IHRA accepted?
D) the silver control panel looks like it is designed for a "normal" steering wheel will it accomodate a dragster butterfly wheel with out horrendous mounting plates/modifications?
E)What is the total weight of the whole package? vs say a 10 oz co2 and shifter plunger ???
F)Does this totally eliminate any type of aftermarket shifters ie> Hurst/Cheetah etc???
