Indeed... come over to the dark side. I probably won't have time to move forward with hooking up the buttons (maybe never). Its actually really fun to just pretend you have secret weapons.otm646 said:initially i thought it was a genuinely silly idea, but the idea of a multi function switch on an automatics shift knob would not be such a bad idea. RF ipod controler and the like.
Surprisingly, even on my one quick test drive, I quickly found that I was shifting without touching any buttons... (I did the video below after the test drive, hence the "its fantastic" commment in the video) Will post a live action daylight video when the wife/kids will allow.otm646 said:The buttons would certanly get in the way of the heel-toe / double clutch shifting.
Or for those pesky snipers hidden behind overpasses/signs with their laser/doppler "guns", those are tough... They never miss you no matter how fast you go. In fact they tend not to notice slower targets.velociT said:Too funny. Now you just need sidewinder missiles behind the headlights for left-lane campers.
LOL! Yeah what is the cheat code that removes all other cars from the road again?Jeece said:Very clever mod, Narf. Just resist the temptation/reflex of using combos while driving: Down-Down-Left-Up-Down-Right.
Yeah, I found a spare horn in basement and I was thinking of hooking it up under the rear bumper with the "extra brake lights" from the 5 brake light mod to provide a rear horn with brake lights! I figure this would effective and also less likely to be ticketed for.I'd seriously consider to hook one of those button to a set of rear fog lights to deter tailgaters.
No problem at all. It is scary how well it fits.How's the reverse shift by the way? Not too hard to achieve?
That is funny, it does actually sit a couple of inches taller than the original so it shifts pretty nice you just have to grab it in the middle instead from the top like a normal shifter.Pretty sweet idea NarfBLAST. Being a military pilot I have used that (near same) flight stick while flying. For some reason I can't help but think the angle of using it as a shifter would not feel right. Almost like it should sit higer, or me sit lower. How does it feel going through the gears?
Definitely an interesting shifter! Thanks for the pic!Anyways, since your original post was "Any interesting shifters out there?", I thought I would post my shifter (from my Camaro).
