Although people do drive them on the street (there are videos on YouTube if you want to look), they are primarily designed for drag racing and so down shifting is not so much used (at least not easily.) 5th to 4th requires (on mine at least) pulling up the lever. This is awkward with the two finger deal, especially if you are in a hurry. The pistol grip may be better and take practice to get where you want it. Mostly, at least racing, forget down shifting except in an emergency.

Hopefully in a panic situation you won't be downshifting to find traction  shocked a parachute is your best friend...

Ron even your brick (roadster) can use one every now and then...

Unh, Al Teague?  Carl Heap?

Yes, I know that Al isn't racing these days and Carl is dead, but still -- they were both known for their "relaxed" shifting on the long course.
I used to love watching Carl go down course! Those 2 giant plumes of thick black diesel smoke were like smoke signals. When he shifted there was a clear space of nothing when he was off the boost. The space got longer as he went down track. Most spectators thought he was shifting much slower. Actually he shifted about the same but as his speed increased the "white space" grew longer because of how much ground he was covering. It was a great visual ...you could see his acceleration down course even though the truck almost disappeared at the 5. RIP Carl ... you are still missed today.

This is awesome! Who ever would have thought a simple add for a tranny would turn into a such a cool discussion about a couple of great racers!  cheers
