Or maybe it could just be hooked up to ONE of the two clutches, only for use when launching from a stop in 1st gear.
its controled by the cars computer. You just use the equiped slide shifter or the paddle shifters

Slide shifter>paddle shifters.

You weren't paying attention. Someone asked for a clutch pedal added to it, and I was theorizing on how it could be done.

Why not both? There's no reason why a SMT/DSG can't have multiple sets of controls, they're just electronic switches like the buttons on your keyboard. On the GTI there's at least two types of controls for it.

What is a slide shifter?

DSG all the way. Preferably with the option for paddles and a +- stick. I say this because I just thought if I were going round a track with paddle shifters, say im going around a turn and as im turning I want to shift and the wheel is in the upside down position then I hit down shift button then suddenly I go into 4th instead if second then im creeping along the track. Since the + and - will be on opposite sides unless they have them both on each side of the wheel, I would get too used to using one side for +and one for - and I would be thinking too fast to realize the wheel is upside down.
It doesn't seem like a huge deal in reality, but I just want a plain M6.
