Here is what the rule revision says.

Electronic rpm controls for the electric
(internal or external to the transmission) shifting of OEM electric shift automatic
transmissions permitted in computer-controlled vehicles only.

They added the words "OEM electric shift" to the previous rule.

The way I read it only OEM electronic transmissions can be electrically controlled. I hope I'm wrong in my interpretation. I also think all cars should be able to use it. Having both hands on the wheel should be safer than having one hand on the wheel, one on the shifter with your attention on the tach to hit shift points.

I assume you only put a statement like that on here to see how people will react?

Yes , that would make sense..but as we all know, in this tech/no tech era...

I already commented on the last part with your premise, so I cut it out.

No, never thought about how anyone would react other than the NHRA rule makers. Can you dispute the statement? Until I bought my Camaro in Oct. 2016, 99.9% of the thousands of passes I made down the track in the last 17 years was done with one hand on the wheel, one on the shifter and most of my attention on the tach until my second shift.

In my faster Stockers...... I have a hard time shifting
the cars when they are way up it the Air.

This leads to me (literally) hitting the tree occasionally.

Of course.......I am pretty old!

We all know there are quite a number of early cars that
are willing to risk running E shift 1st to 2nd.

I am sure I would get caught the first race!

I still wish it was legal.... for everyone I race against
in other lanes well being.

I agree John. Actually now that I'm thinking back a few months....there is a good chance I would have run the tree over had I not had both hands on the steering wheel when I launched on a junk track and took an immediate right turn in the left lane.

If thats such a big problem, I guess all the higher class stickshift cars must need electric shifters too, right? For safety, of course!

I may be in the minority here, but anything that diminishes the input of the driver weakens the class. Drive the damn car!
