Exactly what I was looking for.. I'm glad I'm not the only one who's thought of trying this out. I think it would be ****ing spectacular to drive.

I found the patent for the Ikeya one
starting from pg 31 is what we are looking for. Once again it will take some time to load as it is a 62pg patent.

I definitely want to design and build one of these for a 4th year engineering project if I can get it approved (buy an old getrag to prototype on, then retrofit to a car with the same transmission). I would definitely try to incorporate the ability to grab neutral at any time though.
I would be willing to donate a tranny for you to prototype on aslong as i get it back for cheap when its done lol
