    I have a metal knob on my car and it's not bad if it's parked in the garage or in the shade but other than that it sucks pretty badly. Looks good though

    From experience,

    the heat topped out at +38c in Kelowna BC and I burnt my hand on the shifter, I was actually forced to use a napkin to hold it!!!

    the cold dipped to -42c in Regina SK and guess what... I freeze burnt my hand on the shifter.

    Needless to say, I need a new one.

    Having my friend mill me one out of Titanium, brushed look. il throw up a pic when its done.

    I'm quite happy with the Lathe Werks knob. It has an amazing solid feel.

    I finally added a Kartboy SS and front rear bushing set. Should have done that a while ago.

    Looks good! I have the cobb knob which is made out of delrin. Never experienced the too hot/cold with it. I think you made the right choice.

    I bought a one pound stainless knob from LATHEWERKS.com. It shortened the overall hight of the shifter by a half inch because of how far its drilled in. I love it. I live in mich and it does get damn cold but Its worth it. I can deal with it cold but I wouldn't want a black metal knob. That would def burn you.

    I've ordered a custom sized knob from Lathewerks. While I really like the stock sized one, it is a bit too small for my Sasquatch sized hands. The custom is the same shape, with an additional .5" of height and .25" in diameter. I hope that will be big enough.

    The one pictured above will be for sale soon.
