Default PADDLE SHIFT A-41 Automatic Driving Videos

Hi Folks,

We have Part 1 - Cruise Mode - of the Driving video live on YouTube. It's a short 2min30 sec overview of our automatic transmission, the A-41 which is a derivative of the 4L60/65/70E Hydramatic family. It has in-car video of the product and covers the technical aspects of the product and how to drive with the Paddle Shifter.

Part 1 - Cruise Mode


Driving Video Part 2 - Paddle Shift Mode, is complete and will be live tomorrow. I will update this thread with the link when available. [edit 3/11: now live]


Enjoy!

Shafi Keisler

Hi JR,

Yes, they are very cool and the engine braking makes the car feel like a manual. I love it.

I hope you like part 2. Fortunately, you don't see much of my ugly mug in this one!

wow, that's cooler than i thought !!! question, does the paddle set up make the trans a fully manually operated system ? in other words, if, at a stop you don't downshift into 1st and you're presently in OD, will you be in OD ?

are they available for all transmissions... th350, th400, 200 & 700r4 etc etc etc ?

JR,

Yes, it is fully manually commanded. So you will need to downshift to 1st when taking off, or you'll start in what ever the last gear commanded was. I did this several times by accident during the video shoot, and edited it out to save time.

It's only available for our A-41 and the 4L60/65/70e family and the 4L80/85e family. Nothing for the hydraulic only transmission families you mentioned, as they don't have any servo/electronic controls internally.

With over 16 Million 4L6x units built to date by GM, this is the 700R4/200R4 replacement of today - with far better shift quality and performance capability.
