lol, I was with a couple of people today that had them. Planning on doing that upgrade soon because I like driving a stick and I have been in a couple situations where it would have been handy. They had no complaints and said it was a good upgrade. If anyone has a negative please post up!

I have one from RE and it works great. I reduces the shock load to the drivetrain when your in a tight spot and would normally have to pop the clutch or roll back goose it. With mine I just stay on the brake, pull up the throttle, ease out on the clutch and brake and away we go

I want one as well. I've got an Auto, but want it to keep the RPM's up and steady for Winching.
