The Altronics actuator shifts pretty quickly - guessing .020 second or so. Slamming a gated shifter may be quicker, but the actuator shifts in a very controlled manner and there is no rpm flare or anything like that. With a 15.3 SLR, the 1-2 shift is almost immediate and this Thing nails the shift Point consistently and accurately.
— I didn’t buy the optional paddle shifter feature. The controller is easy to shift up and down cruising the pits / return road So paddles seemed a gee-wiz gadget not needed on a full time drag car. I’ve just installed it and been down the track 10 times now. Works as advertised. There was a month lead time to build it though..
