Anyone get this working?
I've got the racelogic traction system and it works fantastically.

I'm interested in getting the flat shift working because basically in theory it allows you to keep your foot planted on the gas, and tap the clutch while shifting gears.

You can set the RPM to soft cut and wait for you at say 5000 rpm between gears.
The wiring diagram says all you'd need to do is tap into the clutch switch and set one side to GND and the other to pin 20 on the racelogic ecu.

I haven't heard any feedback on anyone using this, and would it would be harmful for the transmission?

I guess the reason to touch the clutch pedal is only to activate the switch for coil power kill.
I don't think so. The gearbox doesn't work like on a bike. far from it. On a bike there's hardly any difference between shifting gear while off the throttle with clutch or w/o clutch.. In a getrag there is!

Brian,

Apparently, it's pretty straight forward. I searched the RLTC Yahoo Group, and this is what I found:

Hi Rich,

Yes FTGS works in my car. Same thing happened to me when I first
installed it. You have to change the "Invert clutch switch" setting
using the editor application. Its "OFF" by default, you need to switch
it "ON".

Yep its pin 20 as shown on page 28 of the RLTC manual, they call it
"CSWITCH".

Subject: [RLTC] Full throttle gear shift


Anyone managed to get FTGS working I have a clutch switch (attached
to pin 20 (or was that 21)) and have tried several settings but
either get no rev cut whether the pin is grounded or not, or rev cut
at the set limit all the time (again whether pin is grounded or not).

Any help on settings and whether I have the right pin etc would be
helpful.

Hehe... I know this is a stretch for ya, but just think!... You can be the first to try it out and report results to us! haha...

But really, it sounds simple; however, I'd test it first before installing the clutch switch. Just wire in pin 20 and manually connect it to ground while reving the engine. If wheel speed is required for it to work, have someone ride along with you and connect pin 20 to ground with an aligator clip while coasting. FWIW, I'd set the hard cut to something very low to keep things safe - say 2000 RPMs. After that, it's just a matter of installing a clutch switch.

C'mon man... I know you can do it! Blaze a trail here and let us know what you find out!
