The Thrustmaster shifter was not usable because you would shift into 7th instead of 6th. This shifter plate fixes that problem and gives you short shift movements of the shifter. I thought the plate was very good and ordered a second plate for my 2nd shifter. Don't expect instructions none are offered. I had to find out myself this plate does not go under the chrome Thrustmaster plate but replaces it. So you lose the chrome finish (unless you order the "Polished Metal Finish" plate) and you lose the numbers that label each gear (no big loss there). AT the moment this product is the only one of its kind available.
