Earlier this week Evolution Motorsports launched the "Bump Stick". Todd Zuccone, founder and president of Evolution Motorsports, was on a TV shoot with the EVOMS 997.2TT when he realized that the OEM PDK shifter just didn't look or fell like it belonged in such an amazing Porsche."
In fact, Zuccone went on to explain what many others have felt, that the non paddle shifter design of the OEM PDK shifter just "doesn't motivate you to want to use it." I couldn't agree more. As much as I love PDK and know that it is faster than manual shifting, you do lose some of that "connection" to the road; that's why I think this is such a great idea for a product. While we haven't yet tried it ourselves, the design looks spot on and I love the mix of carbon fiber and billet aluminum.
