Thread: hand controls for paddle shift car

    hand controls for paddle shift car

    Hey everyone. I'm thinking about buying a Mini cooper S with the paddle shifters on the steering wheel. I'm wondering if anyone has found a preferred hand control that works best with this application? Any and all input appreciated

    I've never used paddle shifters myself, but how are they set up? In other words, do you upshift with the right side paddle and downshift with the left, or can you do both on either side?

    I have paddle shifters in my CTS-V and use Suregrips, no problems using the paddle shifter.

    You can tap either shifter back and forth on the cooper to up and down shift.

    Hey Curt, I do like the Suregrips and they are #1 choice at present.
