    Titanium Knob... haha, I said knob

    I was wondering how hot the Titanium knob gets when sitting in the sun. I have the MOMO airleather one, and I think cuz it's black on top, the aluminum underneath gets scorching hot. Does it burn your hand when you touch it, or does it's light color not get as hot? Any insight from those who have/had one?

    yep, its bound to get hot... thats why i stick with the Derlin knobs now. i used to unscrew my knob (kartboy aluminum) and take it into work with me cuz it got so hot in the sun. (it was also freezing in cold times)

    now i have a Derlin knob and its never too hot or too cold. mine is straight from jdm land, but now there are other derlin knobs available at a good price and easy to obtain... cusco, greddy, and hks are 3 that come to mind.

    You never put a sock over your knob?
