    it would work the same way, put the clutch in and pull the lever back, that'll engage the synchros whilest you pull it into the next gear.

    IT works good, ever seen the Focus or WRX rally cars?

    those are a little different dude, they actually use the paddles on the steering wheel, the sequential stick is for backup, but those trannies have 10's of thousands of dollars invested in them.

    a true sequential shifter does not use the clutch.. I think this does though... i think with this you push the clutch and tap it... but you never know... I know a few people that can shift smoothly without the clutch at WOT... ;)

    Does that kit come with the gear readout? (The big LED number pad that shows what gear you're in)


    -> Steve

    Because I'm liking that.

    Found it does, sorry.


    Google is a wonderful thing.

    Rally cars use compressed air to shift gears. The paddles tell it which way to shift & it does. There is an electronic signal sent to the throttle to stop the flow of gas w/out the driver lifting. Same thing as IRL, Indy, & F1 cars. You can get the same effect w/ a Hondata.

    When the air shift breaks they have to use the stick. When the margin of 1st-5th is only a couple of seconds over several miles of twisties, loosing the paddle shifter can make a big diff in a podium finish or not.
