    Shift Knobs

    Hey, I currently have the STi titainium shift knob in the WRX, and I just bought my cousins Momo knob. The question is... would there be any different besides size of the shift knob? Is one better then the other is a certain way? Can't wait till I get the Momo knob! Ahhhhh

    I am not greatly familiar with both knobs but regardless of size it can be said that a heaver shift knob is better to help balance the shifter linkage out and help with smoother shifts but other than that shift knobs are just personal preference

    I know it is a brand but he was asking if there would be any preformance difference between a STI Ti knob and a Momo knob not what brand is the best

    In my opinion....there is no performance difference between ANY shift knob.

    It is just a knob. There could be a slight feel difference based on weight...but I really, really doubt it is noticable.

    I didn't think there was a difference. Most of the things I've been reading have mainly been concerned with the smoothness of the shifts and the precision of the ****s (...as if you could accurately shift).

    Hopefully the new Momo shift knob will match my steering wheel perfectly.

    agreed just some companies say that a weighted knob helps to balance out the shifter making it easier to shift, I just think which ever feels the best to the person will be the best since it is that person that is shifting

    if it is the one I have seen it will match the momo wheel perfectly I would like one of those but they are like $80 brand new and not worth it

    It helps when your cousin, who had one, gets rid of his 360 hp '03 WRX and got a 6 speed STi. That shift knob doesn't work with a 6 speed. Besides, I got a family discount! w00t!

    If you want to see an improvement in the feel & precision of your shifts - get kartboy shifter bushings. A knob is going to do much for that at all.
