Smartest Shifter
Smart Shift from RetroTek Speed is the perfect blend of cutting-edge technology and retro style. A push-button control panel allows you to shift virtually any domestic automatic transmission with digital precision. Now, ugly shifters and hard-to-route cables are a thing of the past. Based on RetroTek's unique and award-winning technology, the Smart Shift system consists of three major components: the backlit billet keypad, a cutting edge main controller, and the compact actuator. The waterproof compact main controller has been tested on every popular domestic automatic transmission, and it is also compatible with electronic transmissions, such as the 4L60E. The backlit custom billet keypad can be mounted anywhere vertically or horizontally, built-in LED lights indicate transmission status, and a simple 13-pin harness allows all seven keys to be remotely mounted-like behind a torque-flight juke-box or flush-mounted in a dash. Coated for moisture resistance, the high quality push button switches are rated at more than 1-million cycles.
