    cool, im glad i found somebody with it. Do you have it for the 5spd or 6? Does the shift boot match up to it like the stock knob? how much shorter than the stock knob is it? (assuming you have it for 5spd ) whats it made out of? did you order it from worxtuning.com directly?

    Subscribing. I want to find a nice shift knob for my car. I've looked at a bunch of the offerings from various companies but I really don't like them. I want just a regular ball. My friend bought a titanium one for his Evo that looks great. I wonder if that would fit a WRX shifter.

    I'm very interested in this as well, I do not like the stock '05 WRX shift knob. Although, from briefly looking online it looks like a $150 venture to buy a new one. I'd have to be damn nice. I'm thinking something titanium.


    edit:: or perhaps a large fist sized diamond.

    Ive been looking for a replacement knob for my 05 wrx for some time as well. I really like the weighted skunk2 knob that they make for hondas, but no such luck on subarus. I saw the worx one and its design looked really cool. Unfortunately i have to ask around about it before buying because of their crappy site design. Worx doesnt give very detailed descriptions or pictures on anything they sell.

    The shift knob is a great **** knob. The grooves are in the perfect spot for your fingers to fit. The knob is made of a black synthetic material that does not heat up what-so-ever (i live in arizona). As far as how it compares to a stock shifter Im not sure the height difference. I have an agency power short shifter with the worx knob and the combination of the two are awesome. As far as the boot goes, the worx knob doesn't have the ring for the boot to snap over. Again I never had the knob with a stock shifter, so i dont know about that, but with the short shifter and the knob, its profile is low enough that the boot doesn't need anything to hold it up for it to stay right up to the bottom of the knob. Feel free to ask questions

    I actually know the Owner of WORX really well and the same pictures that I am going to take for you is going to be sent to him for the site. With the whole site design, I know for a fact that they are still on overwhelm from SEMA, from all the new vendors and sponsorships so im sure a new site design might be in that mix. Anymore questions let me know

    One more question about the knob, how is the thread on it? does it screw right on or does it have some sort of universal fitting? Im assuming it was meant for the stock shifter.

    From what I can tell the thread runs all the way inside of the knob. To me it seems that the top 1/4 in. is without thread so that you can turn it enough for the worx logo to sit straight. but is spins on there seemless and easy until the threads stop.... and now enough babling her are the pictures.
