US Shift Tuning Software

We believe that the more you know about US Shift products, the more you will like them, so we encourage you to download and inspect our manuals and tuning software before you buy our products. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Our software development philosophy emphasizes robustness, safety, and simplicity. As a result, our software packages use a standalone executable file, make no changes to your Windows system, and do not install any DLLs or frameworks (such as .NET). This strategy insures that our software can have no negative impact on your computer and can be removed by simply deleting the application directory.

Version 4.0 and later are only compatible with Quick 4 controllers and Version 3.31 and earlier is compatible with all Quick 1 and older controllers. These two software packages install to different directories. Version 4.0 and newer installs to C:\Shiftware and version 3.31 installs to C:\BTS. This allows both versions to run side-by-side on the same computer without conflict.

Our software has also been unofficially tested on Windows XP under Mac OS / Parallels and Linux / WINE with good results. Alternatively, you can use a virtual machine. Keep in mind that we do not officially support these methods.

US Shift controllers with firmware version 3.3 or higher utilize our "Direct USB" communication protocol for USB connection without a driver. Direct USB is fully plug-and-play, requiring no ".inf" file, driver configuration, or COM setting adjustments so that setup is easy. Tuning software version 3.30 or higher is required to communicate with later controllers that utilize Direct USB.

Compatible with Quick 1 and all of our previous controllers including the first generation controllers sold between 1997 and 2010. Not compatible with Quick 4. Current US Shift controllers will not operate under Windows 95, 98, or ME due to incompatible USB drivers, so support for these early Windows versions is limited to the first generation controllers.

USB Driver

Right-click and select "Save Link As" to download

Only required for US Shift controllers with firmware versions below 3.3. Not needed for "Direct USB" equipped controllers or older, non-USB controllers. This file must be available when the US Shift controller is connected to your system for the first time. You can use the "Browse" option to tell Windows where you have downloaded this file so that it can correctly communicate with the software. Our installation CDs already include this file and can be accessed using the "Have Disk" option during driver installation. This file has been updated since the first US Shift controllers were sold in June through August of 2010. If you purchased a controller during this time frame and are having trouble using it under Windows 7, 8, or a 64-bit version of Windows XP or Vista, use this updated file to correct the problem.
