Consistency is Key

Direct Shift Assemblies utilize a new bullet valve shift solenoid that move twice as much air as standard solenoids.  Having the valve built into the cylinder reduces the space required on the vehicle to operate an air shift system and allows the shift to happen with less delay. 

In a world where races are routinely won and lost by thousandths of a second, this system will allow you to Stay in FRONT!

The unit is a well made piece but I am disappointed in the fitting that came attached because it never held air. I recommend whoever purchases this item needs to also purchase a new extra 90 degree fitting.

It is a very impressive piece of gear, very well made and the ram is much tighter in the cylinder than other brands. I also like that it is fully rebuildable. very impressed

I have not installed it yet but it looks good to me more aggressive.

You can easily unbolt and move the solenoid to change the direction of the shift.  The top mount of the cylinder is also adjustable so that is can be used with any variety of bracket kits. It is the same length and stroke as conventional cylinders to ensure all current air shifter brackets kits will work as designed.

Beautifully Machined

The Direct Shift Assembly is precisely machined from billet aluminum to exact tolerances and hard anodized to increase durability.


Replacement pieces are available.  O-rings, bolts, valves, clevis kits, pistons, pins, top mounts etc.


Bullet Valves move twice as much air as standard solenoids and having the solenoid directly mounted onto the cylinder reduces delay and allows less kill time to be used.
