For any Mustang owner who is a racing enthusiast or uses their Mustang strictly on the drag strip, CJ Pony Parts has the perfect product for you, the high quality shift lights of Raptor Performance. Raptor Performance is known for their production of aftermarket shift lights for all models of Mustang that were built in 1999 or later. Their top notch shift lights come in two different versions, including single and dual stage varieties, which vary in functionality and are each designed to cater to Mustang racers with different styles of driving.
Raptor Performance was originally founded in 2004 in the city of Concord, North Carolina and was initially started by a group of Mustang racing enthusiasts who took notice of the utter lack of shift lights that were available for any Mustangs that were created after 1998. The founders of Raptor Performance took it upon themselves to create and distribute a properly functioning single mode shift light for later model Mustangs. As most Mustang racers will know, a shift light is an extremely useful tool that helps racers hit the most efficient times to shift while driving their Mustang down the strip. Shifting at the proper time helps to keep a consistent application of power to the drivetrain, making the most of all of that horsepower under the hood and getting them down the drag strip in the fastest time possible.
The problem that other manufacturers ran into in the early 2000's, when attempting to create a shift light for the newer engines, was that there was no tach signal available to read from, like there was in previous models. This was due to the fact that the 1999 Mustang was the first year that had the new coil-on-plug technology. Raptor Performance was able to come up with a way to make use of this technology and create the first shift light that could read the shift timing off of a single coil and make sense of the new engine's coils that fired multiple times when running under 3000 RPM. To this day, Raptor Performance still produces the smallest package for 1999+ Mustangs that need a shift light. These shift lights are an optimal choice for any Mustang racer on a budget, and will serve just as well as a unit that costs a great deal more.
Raptor Performance's shift light units are available in two different variants: The basic single stage package allows Mustang racers to shift when appropriate and helps them deliver power to the pavement more efficiently. The dual stage kit is designed for those racers who are looking to gain launch control in addition to a shift light. The launch control functions indicate when a racer has reached their desired launch rpm without them having to keep their eye on the tachometer, allowing them the focus their attention on the signal tree. The stage two also allows owners to incorporate other external devices with their shift light, adding even more versatility to their racing setup. Raptor Performance takes pride in the fact that all of their products are manufactured in the Unites States.
