    Me too! Mine didn't come with that one but I found someone selling it for 25 bucks!

    This is what I have. It was a height adjustable NRG universal fit. But I bought an unthreaded bushing from McMaster.com, threaded it, and press fit it into the threaded collar. Now it screws on.

    I know you said you don't like the metal knobs because of heat/cold issues, but I think you should check out the Anarchy Motive shift knobs. They have a thick powder coated finish over top of the metal which keeps them from getting too cold. I've been using mine for a while now here in snowy Cleveland and even when it's real cold out, the knob doesn't feel any colder to me than the leather steering wheel. Haven't had a chance to test it in any extreme heat, but I would assume it would again be the same temp as the steering wheel (if not slightly cooler if you don't go with the black knob).

    If you order the "WRX" version it has the collar attachment on the bottom to keep the shift boot up.

    Here is a pic of the gunmetal WRX version installed in my car:



    By the way, I'm pretty sure this is the heaviest knob available, and is well over a pound. I haven't installed my Kartboy SS or any of my bushings yet and this knob alone made a decent improvement in the feel and smoothness of shifts.

    ^^I agree about the Anarchy Motive shift knob. It's definitely the heaviest knob I've seen, and looks great. It really makes the shifts effortless. It is only cold when you first touch it, but it quickly warms up. I was concerned about it feeling cold too, but I'm more than happy with this knob. There are several colors to chose from, but I have the same color as SomeGoalie.

    Hopefully this will work - this is the Sneed4Speed Billy Club Delran shift knob - I really love it - weighted makes the shifting much smoother and faster and looks great (I think anyway).
