Anyone drive one of the BMWs w/ paddle shifters or any other modern car so equipped? Anyway, I have been reading up on the idea of using these in my Mach 1. I love the idea of paddle shifting, and it is technically possible, I'm just not sure if it makes practical sense. There are documented cases of folks putting electronic trannies in their classic mustangs (AOD, AODE, 4R70W) and there are paddle shift retrofits on the market now (Shrifter) that work with these trannies along with a TCU like the Baumannator. Other than cost, which looks like it could get pretty high after you get the trans, controller, and paddles, the only other considerations I'm not clear on are weight and power consumption. The AOD and 4r70W are very heavy, correct? Does anyone have figures to compare here with typical mustang trannies (C4, C6, TKO, T56)? Next would be the parasitic loss of power issue. I have no numbers on this either. Anyone care to explore? How cool would it be to have F1 style paddle shifters in one of these cars with a big stroker and big fat tires?
