    Momo knob

    Thanks iceWRX. I get a little paranoid about pulling or ripping. Got all done installing the Kartboy STS and couldn't put my new Momo shift knob on...!@#$%.

    While we're on it, I just installed a Momo knob and it looks pretty sweet and whatnot, but once I unscrewed the STi knob I used to have and got the plastic out, it felt like the boot would just fall down eventually. Is there a plastic type thing to keep the leather attached to the base of the Momo knob?

    great knob dsel. i got the sameone myself. i couldn't be happier.

    PKer on this board had the idea of putting a few rubber bands around the shifter lever to keep the shift boot from dropping. i have yet to try this, but it seems like it will work very well.

    I have the same shifter knob. Just took the threaded aluminum collar off and wedged the boot onto the threaded part of the knob. A super tight fit, but it took less than a minute to wedge it on there. Just be gentle. Hasn't come loose in about a year.

    If you still want the aluminum collar on there, then I guess just rubber bands or electrical tape on the handle the prop it up like dsel says.
