Parvalux enables new Radical gear shift system
British racing vehicle manufacturer, Radical Sportscars, has selected Parvalux to supply the compressor motor in a new paddle shift system for their unique range of sports vehicles.
Many of Radical's sports-cars are road-legal, and include the world’s fastest production sports-car, the SR8, current holder of the lap record around Germany’s famous Nürburgring.
Paddle shift systems are available for both Hewland and PowerTec type transmissions and come with a Parvalux enabled pneumatic compression unit to enable effortless semi-automatic gear control. The system may be purchased pre-installed or as an upgrade kit from the Radical website http://www.radicalsportscars.com.
Mick Hyde, founder member and Managing Director of Radical comments “The engineering support Parvalux gave us was first class, and the customised unit they supplied passed our tests with flying colours first time. In motorsport the quality and reliability of every single component in a car is critical to its handling and performance, and so hopefully our customers will be as happy as we are with the results.”
