    Those pieces of hardware look pro, but I wouldn't take risks. Heusinkveld makes an amazing shifter and handbrake, which are reliable and feel very realistic. I own the handbrake and I had the shifter for some years, but I sold it to replace it with the Ascher Racing push-pull rally paddle shifter, which is even better. Actually, why do you want a shifter? Nobody uses them anymore in real racing.

    I’m with the op in regards to a shifter.
    If the car I use has one (either stick or paddle) then so do I. Same as clutch.
    I sometimes race old school Lotus 49 which uses stick.
    I also have City Car Driving which is a driving (not racing) sim which I use shifter on.
    There is still a market fir shifters.
