i got a Razo ball type and its heavy so shifting, to me, feels better but NJ has been getting ice cold lately and my palm has been taking a beating from that cold weather. As far as the summer its not that bad so im alright.
Yup its true it does, I just got mine like two weeks ago and I don't regret it either. It warms up anyways and It's much better than stock because you can feel it engage into gears much better when shifting fast and it looks dope! Just get one, come on!!!
sounds like it probably would be worth it, the only thing is that most of my driving during weekdays is in the morning when my car is freezing cold. i assume itll be much easier to install one when i get a B&M shortshifter if it ever comes out because i will be messing with the shifter anyway. Another question, is there anyway to get the shiftboot to stay up, because jdm shiftknobs seem to never have the boot attached under them, the shiftboot just kinda sags under it. If anyone knows what im talking about, thatd be awsome, and if anyone has pics of the knob id love to see those too.
Edit: While searching i heard someone said that if you get the knob from clubrsx.com that it comes with the shiftboot adaptor... is that the thing that connects the knob to the boot? If thats true ill get.
like it was said before, in the cold it's not so bad, it warms up after a while. to keep it bearable in the summer, i just drape a white cloth over it when it's parked. helps keep it reasonably touchable... shifting is definitely crisper with the added weight of the aluminum...
here's a thread where i describe how to keep the OEM silver collar up against the knob, not using all the parts provided with the aluminum one...
It's good stuff. I usually wear really thin gloves [that i use for snow boarding] in the winter. So i just keep them on until the car gets warmer. Haven't had the knob in the summer yet. We'll see what happens !! =0
