View Full Version : EMC Smartshift

My buddy is a high level quad and is having trouble with the gear shift in his van. He is thinking of installing an EMC Smartshift which would allow him to select gears via pushbuttons. Can anyone give me feedback on how well these things work. I am especially worried about cold weather operation as sometimes nothing wants to work during a Canadian winter

There are various companys secondary controls of shift changers out on the market. I'd check with a mobility specialist to get the right one, plus most economical (if thats an issue). Most all of EMC equipment has been recalled due to malfunction incidents, fyi.
I have a Crescent Industry gear shifter and its pretty simple. Not any problems, but at 0 degrees, what doesn't have issues? http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

I had the EMC unit in my previous van. No problems.
I also had the EMC electronic gas/brake. In cold weather, I'd have to wait till the van warmed up before I could drive. The gas/brake was very stiff when cold.

Thanks for the input so far. I found a similar product on the internet. Its called the Memory Shift from Creative Controls. Anyone use this?

I have the EMC SmartShift and have not had any problems even at -35 C.
Like Clipper, the EGB gas/brake stiffens up in the cold so one has to wait for the car to warm up.
