Default Convert MT into "tiptronic" style? Anyone Tried the 5Zigen Twin Mode Clutch System?

Looks like 5Zigen has a new "semi-automatic" (don't know if that's the right term) shifter for MT:

http://www.takakaira.com/php/template.php3?id=185&cat=2

Seems like it allows you to have 2 modes on a 5MT, the "normal" mode and a semi-automatic mode where you just push or pull the shifter to upshift & downshift.

Curious, has anyone tried these on? Any thoughts?

People have discussed this system but I do not think that anybody on this board has tried it yet.

The article did not talk much about performance it just mentioned that the acura had it but not much more. Try contacting 5 Zigen maybe they will have more info for you.

Thanks. The product is probably too new for people to have solid feedback on it. I don't know if 5Zigen people will provide an unbiased opinion..... oh well...
