Flat shifting on a rotary.

Curious really. Has anyone got a sequential gear set up, 5 or 6 speed, AND running a flat shifting system??? Full throttle gear changes?

I'm told its not as easy to run flat shifting system on the rotaries as it is on a piston lump. Any imput appriciated

Cheers guys. From what i understood running full throttle gear shifts on the rotaries it could cuase tips to break due to the way the electonics cut the spark to allow the change.

You don't necessarily have to use ignition cut. Simply retarding the timing can be enough to hold the revs in check between gear changes.
