longer dct shift knob

my dct knob is too short, especially for when im driving at a spirited pace since i usually prefer to shift it using my right hand instead of the paddles.



something like this would be perfect, at least it will let me live my race car driver dream with this sequential-esque shifter, sans the clutch

anyone know make a suggestion as to what to do?

Seeing that the paddles are on the wheel, instead of the column & some of us of the feed-steering variety could use this at the track--even though it may look a bit silly.

Somebody pls make one that telescopes! Lol
I'd buy one!

What kind of spirited drive requires you to remove your hands from your wheel? Unless of course your spirited drives include drifting. There's a meeting for those with manual transmission withdrawals you can attend.
