Arrow c4 shifter drag race

What is you favorite drag race c4 auto shifter for a reverse manual .
I currently have a B&M quicksilver ratchet shifter works well but I am thinking of maybe updating to one with and electric shift ability . So let me see what you have ( does not have to be electric shift ) just might get me to pull the trigger and buy a new shifter . Thanks guys

Have had B&M and wasn't a fan of it either. Switched to Hurst and loved it - not electric shift

Agreed, you better order it now if you want it by next race season though.

Quarter stick - came with my glide. It's pretty good; reverse is a pain in the ass. LOVE the Winters/Cheetah shifters though. Like the old Jaguar shifters but with balls of steel.

I'm using the Outlaw with 2 buttons. It's fine and does the job.
I really wanted to run a PPP but never saw a clean street car installation. That thing is big.

Lots of different ways to skin a cat.

Used a B&M Hammer for years. Switched to a Quarterstick last year. Much better for track use.

Well when I am ready to finally drive the car I am going to buy a new tci diablo shifter with the 2 buttons for the line lock and trans break seeing I have to engage the trans break to go into reverse will make things much easier .

It's a fine shifter. Top button has the 2-step & TB wired together. Bottom button turns on over drive.
Heat shield the cable and I've had zero issues on a turbo car.
