This looks like a very interesting option for those of us interested in upgrading to a sequential gear shift WITHOUT replacing the gearbox. Direct bolt on for pretty much all Tremec manual gear boxes!

It doesn’t negate the need for de-clutching, so flat shifting is a no go due to the core gearbox being unchanged, but pretty cool none the less. I wonder how effective/prone to jamming it would actually be in use?

I thought it was interesting, but saw a major issue with the tower on the end of the box... Then I saw the remote lever option, and thought that it was back into interesting territory... Much less to remove before dropping the box

I’m guessing the next step for this system would be a power shift option with wheel mounted paddle shifters. Replacing the lever with an actuator wouldn’t be terribly difficult to do. Although still having to declutch might render such a complication a little pointless?

The value for me in a sequential is the ability to flat shift, you can't flat shift with this sifter.

Also the idea of a sequential for fast road and track work is great, but the thought of using one for every day driving isn't so
