    Maybe would work better with loadcell gearknob for start of the spark cut and then barrel position feedback for returning the spark back (when barrel sensor tells that next gear is engaged). This is what i Will use with quaife box and also with elite box in another car. So flat shift is closed loop when done this way, not just stupid timebased.

    Don't know about the load cell gear knob? Will look into it, just thought there is a separate ecu or system I could get off the self, had my heart set on the geartronic one

    MSD (Motorsport Developments) designed a flatshift system for my L8 for use with the Geartronics paddle shift system on my Elite transaxle and it worked great.

    If you were prepared to fork out for the geartronics stuff ££££££££££ it wouldnt be a stretch to fit an ecu that will do it all anyway ? The ecu might be cheaper !

    To be fair the geartronic ecu was only £350 plus vat , my l6 with pectel board is great and runs my air injectors and pectel monitor and pectel boost controller , so don't really won't to change ecu, anyone had any experience with pro shift ? Or fiat shift .com
