I was just thinking the same thing! The lever is right on the tranny, I can see it. Then there is the the locking thing [which prevents you from pushing the button {on the shifter} without the ignition on], which easily could be modded, you just have it so it only has ignition on power. Only thing I don't like, is it is just one more thing I would be relying on electronically.. and electronics have kind of let me down on this car. I'm going to look into it. I know the guy at a local hobby shop, and there are digital servos which you can program their movement, as in how far they move. The dumb thing, would be to have one button, and you press it a set amount of times to shift, but the cool thing, would be to have 7 buttons, and each button programmed to move the servo a set amount. But, I don't know how that would be possible. Let me search into this a little more, I know that a $150 servo, plus a $200 programmer wouldn't be cheap, and those digital ones aren't quite as powerful as the analog ones.
