it was sorta done there, looks like it is just a 1000 rpm command with that button, and not a full fledged shift synch. i.e. a button/combination of buttons/gate switches to tell it which gear you want next and it knows the speed of the car and the gear ratios and quickly brings the motor rpm to that speed. But yah that would make going clutchless a lot easier.

I think a rapid motor slowdown button would also help, but requires some driver skill on synching.
