The Ferrari's or Lamborghini's have that kind of system, forget which one, but then again if your spending that much on a car you want them to put some cool features into them.

It is not easy to do unless you are working with a sequential transmission (like on a motorcycle).

Even then you have to figure out how you are going to shift without the clutch. To upshift you would need to at least kill power to the motor (ign. cut). To downshift you need to 'rev-match'. Are you going to do that automatically (with an electronically controled throttle or ETC) or are you going to blip the throttle each time you have to downshift. How long are the drive dogs (no syncro's in a seqential trans) going to last while you learn to blip the throttle?

The next thing to look into is what is going to actuate it. Electronics can only handle so much...you will most likely have to use some type of pneumatic or hydraulic actuator...which means at the least adding an air compressor (or using CO2 cans).

This isn't something the average 'Joe' can jsut slap together on the weekend.

Take a look at this trans

Too bad it is $13,195.00

Get a 4l80 & a compushift, then you can program the trans.
to respond on the fly to your need, as well as Up/down shifting whit two button if needed

You can run Whit an Overdrive transm. whit normal shift then on the track you reprogram the trans. to shift at 6500 for example..

This is the best of both world
