Been seeing a ton of WC Lathe Werks knobs and new shift knob threads, lets make one big thread of WC Lathe Werks knobs. List a little review of the knob, car model, knob options, comparison over stock, link,your shifter setup ( short shifter, bushings, etc.) and a photo please
Ill start on my 2002 wrx with a short throw Sti upgrade on it i installed a WC lathe werks Stainless steel sphere in a burnt gunmetal finish. It weighs 530 grams and sits 1" lower than stock, which is a perfect fit the rest my arm on the armrest and hand on the knob. My stock knob i could feel a "notchy" feeling going into all the gears, it wasnt smooth at all. After installing this weighted knob it goes smoothly into gear and just feels amazing all around. I thought installing shifter bushings would help with the "notchiness" but the new knob helped a ton. I installed shifter bushings, front and rear, shortly after and it didnt make much difference to me. Maybe with the stock knob it wouldve felt better but the WC Lathe Werks knob made the most positive impact. The knob i decided to go without the engraving because i wanted it to feel smooth in my hand. The finish is super smooth with a nice shine. I purchased the little bag for when it gets hot or cold, because it does get very hot in direct sunlight.Perfect IMO and probably the best mod ive bought for the car.
