    New shift knob......

    Check out my new shift knob....hehe I know it is redneck but I think it looks kind of cool. I will probably only run it for a few days.......It has been in my drawer for years ever since I sold the truck it was bought for. Anyway I was wondering if it would fit the STi, so I went and tried and I'll be damned it if didn't fit pretty good. It doesn't thread down all the way though so it is sitting a good 1" higher than the stock one sat. Anyway here are some pics so enjoy. I welcome your comments......

    If you got the 8 to be lined straight up and down parallel to the trim... it wouldn't be that bad

    Yeah it's not very well known.. happens when one drives with one arm all the time such as the owners of 350Z's and Hondas etc.. the compression upon braking causes the bones/muscle in the arm to contract/collapse causing an overall loss of length in the effected arm.

    Most cases in America are left arms, but some Japanese are beginning to complain of right arm problems..

    The Department of Health is looking into it.

    I love the people that "G-Ride" the seat in their car so they can barely see out the windshield......

    I swerve at them to make them sit up.

    All my friends have mini-trucks so they never wear their seatbelt or put the seat in the upright position. They look out my rear passenger window instead of the front window. It's sad.

    It's hard to find those who actually follow the rules of

    1. Knee slightly bent when pedal is fully depressed
    2. Arms slightly bent when both are set on the wheel at 10 and 2 or 3 and 9.

    The WRX and other modified cars have those protuding knob like things on the steering wheel to suggest where to place your hands...

    I'll bet some kids have no idea what those are for.

    well I took it off this morning. You guys are right it made the shifter way longer which wasn't good and I need to find the lock nut to make it straight for all the OCD peeps (or CSAS) out there lawls.

    If I just cant resist the urge to put it back on I will have to cut off the stock shifter and find the locknut that goes with the knob. Doubtful I will do it though....

    I'm too damn tall
