Bremer doesn't seem to sell any other product, so they (he?) are probably operating out of a basement, therefore, they have no capital to pay for expensive production equipment/tooling. Their parts look to be carved out of blocks of aluminium, and thus the price is what it is...

From my 8 years of driving a Fiero Isuzu, most of the shifting time seems to be waiting for the synchronizer to synchronize, not moving the shifter left <---> right in the H-pattern. So it seems to me that the greatest reduction in shift time would come from dog clutches, not sequential shifting.

If Bremer were to have done the demonstration with the input shaft turning at 6000 RPM or so, the shifting would have been much slower. Anyone can shift almost as fast as in the video with a synchronized H-pattern box - when the engine is off.
