The Hondata Strain Gauge is a gearshift mounted strain gauge sensor and remote strain gauge amplifier, which signals the ECU to cut the engine when the gear lever is moved. This enables very quick no lift shifts with dog engagement transmissions.

The Strain Gauge works by using a strain elements in the gear shift knob to measure the force on the knob, via accurately measuring the strain on an aluminum insert between the gear lever and gear knob.

The aluminum insert has two bonded Omega® strain gages which change electrical resistance very slightly when force is applied to the shift knob. Due to magic the very slight difference in resistance gets converted by the Strain Amplifier to a voltage which can be used by the ECU to determine when you are applying force to the gear knob to start to shift gears.
