What I didn't quite realize was that what I was purchasing was a block of stainless steel billet that was artfully sculpted into a lovely palm friendly shape but would also work just fine if a riot broke out and I needed a quick skull basher.
The diameter of the ball is larger as well, which I quite like given that I have big meat pattys, but my wife agrees that the knob feels different than we're used to, but quite nice.
The scale tells the tale of the beef
This is my old knob
what the scale doesn't tell you is how that weight makes the shifter slide into gear . It really increased the quality of the shifts. This knob make the trans feel more refined. It's pretty weird, but I am sold on it. This Race Eng Slammer shift knob has found a permanent home in the Meany.
