OK. Let me see if I understand. You are going to have the capacitors and the diodes, and still need a micro controller to manage the servos. So the whole mechanical contraption only hakes the place of the MOSFETs.

Wow! MOSFETS look a whole lot simpler to me.

Seriously, the only advantage I can see is using this for drag racing when you want to handle thousands of amps for a 10 second run. It should be cheaper than IGBT modules. But for your average car, this seams like a really complicated way to go.
