Seen on many well known Tarmac and Targa Rally R35's like the Pilatus R35, as well as numerous Pro Class time attack cars like the Mercury Q-Scan R35 and the HKS GT Autogarage R35, as well as at Pikes Peak on the Lyfe Motorsport R35 (click here for incar videos at Pikes Peak), our paddle shifter and quick release systems are proven on some of the most serious R35 racecars in the world.

These systems can be used with the factory R35 GT-R transmission.

What's In The Kit ?

This kit consists of the following products ...

1 x Paddle Shifter Mechanism

The Paddle Shifter places specially designed ergonomic carbon fibre paddles behind your steering wheel. You can shift gears with a 7mm stroke of the precision engineered paddles.

The carefully made, beautifully detailed Paddle Shifter is composed of machined aluminium alloy and finished with a very hard wearing Alumite treatment.

The carbon fibre paddles are adjustable to match the size of your hand or steering wheel by up to 15 mm on each side.

The adjustment range allows for distances between the outer edges of the paddles of 270mm to 304mm.

The microswitch wiring is beautifully concealed within the shift mechanism.

1 x Quick Release with 8 pin wiring connector or 20+ pin wiring connector.

This kit is available with your choice of a quick release with an 8 pin electrical connector, or a quick release with more than 20 pins on the connector.

The difference in cost between the detachable version with the 8 pin connector in the quick release, and the detachable version with the extra pins on the connector in the quick release is US$139, so if you think you will be wanting to have more than 1 additional switch on the steering wheel, it is always worth going with the version with 20 + pins instead of 8 pins, as the 20 + pin version offers so much more room to add additional buttons to the steering wheel in the future.

1 x Short Steering Wheel Boss Kit Hub

As shown in the photo above, the exclusive short hub system is designed for use with quick releases.

This short hub system is designed to compensate for the additional length of the steering quick release and prevents setting the steering wheel too close to the driver.

With the short hub system, the user is able to offset the position of the steering wheel away from the driver for optimum driver position.

The special short hub / boss kit for the GT-R measures just approx 40 mm from the mounting surface of the steering wheel on the boss to the steering column surround.

1 x Airbag Warning Cancellation Harness

The Airbag Warning Cancellation Harness allows the driver to bypass the airbag signal in order to prevent the in-dash airbag warning light flashing or staying on once an aftermarket wheel is installed.

Please also see the additional wiring info in the "Installation Info" section at the bottom of this page. This bundle is designed only for installation by a professional qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician.

Steering Wheel Compatability

The Paddle Shifter and Quick Release kit is designed to be used with aftermarket steering wheels.

It cannot be used with the factory Nissan R35 GT-R Steering Wheel.

At the steering wheel end, the Quick Release ships pre-machined with bolt holes in standard 6 bolt Momo bolt pattern steering (PCD 70mm), the bolt pattern used on 6 bolt Momo, Vento, Sparco and OMP steering wheels

If you require an aftermarket steering wheel, we can supply a wide range of aftermarket steering wheels for use with this kit.

Installation Info

The Paddle Shifter mechanism in this bundle is a racing product designed for use in custom race car applications only. As such, it is designed to be wired into your car's electrical system by a qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician.

Installation should only be carried out by a qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician.

The Paddle Shifter mechanism ships with a short length of wiring preinstalled and soldered to the microswitches, but as this paddle shifter mechanism is a racing product designed only for custom race car installations, the pre-installed wiring on the paddle shifter mechanism may need to be lengthened by your installer to suit your vehicle. Your installer will also need to connect the wiring from the paddle shifter mechanism to the quick release electrical connector on the steering wheel side of the quick release, and run a short length of additional wiring from the steering column side of the quick release to your factory shift wiring. Each installer has their own preferences of what thickness of wiring to use in custom applications, so that additional wiring will be supplied by your installer and is not included in this product bundle

Please note that this is not a "plug and play kit", and it is not designed for "at home" installation. It is designed only for installation by a professional qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician. It does not include a "plug and play" wiring harness, so your installer will either solder the wiring for the paddle shifter to the corresponding factory shift wiring for an electrically strong and reliable connection, or some installers add small fittings to the wiring to connect the wiring from the paddle shifter to the factory shift wiring connector within the steering column behind the steering wheel. Please consult with your installer before ordering this product bundle.
