Hello Matt , let me try to expand.. Its not a easy simple one line answerPPG - Have you done any automation trials? (not just flat shift)
Interested to see how it compares to the Holinger for automation, specifically how low in gear clutchless downshifts can be managed. Also, as previously mentioned by others, interested to see it in a high powered RB as you claim Drag use, which is very hard on the drive train.
Hello UmarWhether its for my own personal needs or customers cars needs, I'm asking Qs which have been asked throughout the last 6 pages. Some offering their cars as testing bases (risking their engines)
Would this handle a really torquey high revving launching drag car, 1000bhp with 800lbs+ (not NM) harsh driven RB ?
Im with Umar
I am also looking for a gearbox before I consider a larger turbo which would eat the gearbox - Motor is giken rb30 with big valve head .
Im currently avidly persuing the gearbox issue so the ppg is obviously a possibility along with the usual other options
The thing , is I know the limits/costs/ etc of all the options except the ppg .
Just my opinion of course but you did start the thread and its about a new product so those interested are mostly serious enquiries so will want serious answers .
If you want to sell any i think further info is needed.
First off, many thanks for taking the time to respond, it is appreciated.Hello Matt, let me try to expand.. Its not a easy simple one line answer
That's good news indeed.(The R32 system has not been designed in the first stage for paddle shift however its a natural development that we are working on now)
That's very similar to the logged timings I'm getting from the Holinger.However automation is something we specialise in and you can see the types of paddle shift systems we produce working in the Dallas Performance 2000hp Audi R8.
This is working within the region of 40-50ms for shift for next gear stable coupled with a 5mm shift distance for actuation and typically 2/3rds the air pressure required because of the low stiction systems we inbuilt in our designs.
A lot of people that have seen the Dallas Lambo and Audi sequential systems think they are actually DSG such is the smooth and seamless shifting function.
I'm using Penny and Giles Sensors, they seem quite up to the job for the costOur exclusive usage of the Gill Blade 360º sensor on our barrel systems which is actually 10bit resolution provides data at higher levels than any other system in the industry , no need for filters that mask the data and the ability to log data at high speed , its the reason why Gill supply the F1 grid with sensors
This data capture enables greater visibility of dog position and allows you to characterise the dog position such that you can achieve next gear stable in reduced ,repeatable and accurate times.

That's great but doesn't answer the question which is specific to this box unfortunately.In terms of power, PPG have 2400hp V6 cars running our systems running un imaginable speeds with 2000ftlb with 1600kg chassis with huge slicks on glued tracks, I guess at this point you need to see PPG is based around Drag racers and huge HP applications , its what we do.....
Have you tested one to destruction, in either drag, circuit or road conditions?The thing to think about is this system is designed for the aftermarket sector ,its not a lightweight optimised system design for a particular series of racing with a HP & Torque ceiling thats been adapted from something that just happens to fit.
It kind of sounds like you're expecting your customer base to find the limits tbh.The PPG R32 Sequential system has been designed with the view the customers will throw everything and the kitchen sink at it to try to break it . We are pretty sure we got it covered ..... Any questions you can call or email me and i will be happy to answer any technical points ...
