    New Knob: Razo Drift Spec RA117

    Well I just installed my new shift knob. Thanks guys for helping me figure out how to get the stocker off (did a search, it was amazing hahah).

    I started reading about this knob a few months back in SCC i think. Its designed by Drifter racers, its 480g and center weighted too. Its great, makes the shifts crisp and shorter.

    I dont think many people have this, i cant find anything when i google besides the Razo website.

    Im not sure how to get the leather to attach (theres no neck to attach it to w/ a zip tie). But it stays up, just isnt as nicely attached as stock.

    TTIWWOP...

    Well it makes the shifts "feel" shorter. Center Weighted, Counter Weighted, same thing. The lower center of gravity helps w/ shifting. I dont know the physics of it.

    I know the s2000 and miata guys swear by the Voodoo knobs which are center weighted knobs that look like perfect circles.
