I started looking into this a long time ago when I thought about making a kit car for my sports car. Lack of time, and a garage forced me to ditch this idea nad settle on a VR4(darn! and I do keep it covered yes and I'm looking to move somewhere I can have a garage so don't flame me. She's well taken care of). Anyway, I was wondering if there's any company out there making some kind of retrofit F1 style shifters? I would think a couple of computer controlled hydraulic pistons would do the trick to replace the stick shift. That or even an entire transimission replacement. Then just put paddles or buttons on the steering wheel and add the shifting computer and you're set. Auto when you want it, but faster than human shifting when you want performance. I know it seems silly and would cost an arm and a leg, but has anyone seen anything like this?
