this is the one I use, I actually hooked it up to the TB button in the car, lets me get a feeel for where I want the button etc.

I also leave it hooked up in the bedroon and hit it a couple times a day. I dont sit in fron of it for hours due to the fact thats not how you do it in reality.

Also take it to the track and hit it every so often between rounds.

Fun to use at partys lol. I do use it as a tool to figure out release technique and which is more consistant for me.

I have the first one you listed. The Porta Tree Eliminator.

Works great.

I also have a PortATree unit. Since both my race cars are 4 speeds, I ordered the optional foot pedals that can be plugged in to simulate releasing the clutch pedal. I really should practice with it more often.

why don't you make a release for your clutch and put it on a delay box easy to do...
