Wheels, does it down shift just as easily as it shifts up? Also, does it easily go into neutral? what happens to the pingel if you hit the brake for a sudden stop and are in gear...do you have to pull the clutch then?RT, great putting a handshake on ya while in Knoxville finally. I have had great results with the Pengel Shifter. 118K miles and still clicking. http://www.pingelonline.com/eshifter.htm
It was a very easy install, however I would suggest not installing the electronic interupt feature.
Don't really see these on Craig's list or Ebay a great deal as far as used go, but might keep an eye out as ya never know. Good luck and give a holler if I can help. Hope we cross paths again sometime down the road.
Over the course of being on this site, I have been conjtacted by a lot of folks asking for information. On several occassions, I spoke with members who had installed the electronic interrupt feature and after a few thousand miles had transmission problems. I did not install mine fron day one as I wantedn to expereince clutching and shifting. Thhis equipment was originall made for the racers and they need to pound through the gears and after a race if the transmission is shot, well, they build another one. Me, well, I would rather do it the old fashion way.Wheels,
Why don't you like the interupt feature?
Yes, either direction it works fine. Getting nutral can be a little tricky at times as you need to "bump" the buttons rathern then a hard push. On those occassions where you get cuaght quick on a stop, I pull the clutch, and brake, and then as the situation allows, I let out the clutch, "hit" the gear, then pull the clutch back in, down shift with the Pengel, then left the clutch out and "hit" the gear until I am down in first. As much as possible, I use the engine while stoping and down shift accordingly.Wheels, does it down shift just as easily as it shifts up?
