    TWM Performance weighted shift knob MEGA THREAD!!!



    Hello everyone,

    First of all, let me introduce TWM Performance to the clubwrx.net crowd! Since 2002, we have been producing shift knobs of the highest quality to cater to the tuner and sport compact industry. An important aspect of TWM Performance that we take great pride in, is being able to say that our entire R&D, manufacturing, and offices are within North America! We strive everyday to produce products of the utmost quality while attempting to be the first company to release new designs and finishes. We're really excited to have been approved by the site administrators to be able to post here on clubwrx.net and we hope to become a great addition to the Subaru community!



    TWM Performance line up of high end stainless steel weighted shift knobs



    I figured we would start out by creating a thread that will give all everyone a quick overview of the TWM Performance line up of products we offer for your cars.

    As you can see here, and as you may already know, TWM Performance offers the most extensive line of products to improve the shift feel in your Subaru and the overall look of you interior. All of this is done while retaining OEM, or better, fitment and providing the highest quality materials available on the market today.


    When upgrading to a TWM short shifter, people often think that they have done everything to improve the shift feel of their vehicle. They often forget the benefits that a heavy weighted shift knob can have on the shifting feel of a car. A heavier shift knob carries more kinetic energy and momentum with it when set in motion than a stock, lighter shift knob. This effect of carrying more momentum makes the shift knob more difficult to stop when set in motion, so it essentially helps you engage the next gear. This results in a smoother shift feel with less direct effort required from the driver to engage the next gear. Basically a heavier shift knob smooths out the shift feel, and almost makes the shift feel effortless.

    The other great advantage of a TWM weighted shift knob, and another exclusivity in the industry, is our NTIS® technology. A universal shift knob that retains the stock thread-on design and that is fully height adjustable. TWM shift knobs are the ONLY shift knobs in the industry with these features and it means they can be installed in virtually every car with a threaded shifter shaft.

    All TWM weighted shift knobs are available in 5 different and durable finishes as pictured below:




    Showcased here are the three most popular shift knob models in the Subaru community.



    M1 Abrams
    By now all of you probably know the M1 Abrams weighted shift knob. It’s round shape fits perfectly in the palm of the hand and weighing in at 460 grams, solid and precise shifts are assured all the time, every time. The M1 Abrams is threaded as deeply as possible to offer the lowest setting you can get compared to the stock shift knob.







    Type R
    Another very popular shift knob is the Type R weighted shift knob. The Type R shift knob is the perfect choice for any JDM enthusiast. Like every TWM shift knob, it is threaded as deeply inside as possible for maximum height adjustability.







    A6 Leopard
    On of the most popular shift knob with the WRX enthusiasts lately is the A6 Leopard weighted shift knob. Featuring a similar shape as the M1 Abrams but with a bottom collar for people who like more room between the shift knob and the shift boot, this shift knob weighs 485 grams for a positive shift feeling.






    In the next post, our wide selection of Reverse Lockout compatible shift knobs for the Subaru STi!

    As the STi community is growing, the demand for reverse lockout (RL) compatible shift knobs is higher than ever and we are proud to offer you different models to answer everyone needs and taste!


    M1 Abrams RL

    Our best selling M1 Abrams RL was introduced a while ago to the STi community, and with the addition of the engraved shift patterns last year it has now proven to be one of the most popular weighted shift knobs for the STi. Weighing in at 400 grams for a solid shift feeling, this 2" inch diameter round shaped shift knob fits firmly in the palm of the hand.


    A few pictures of the M1 Abrams RL:

    The M1 Abrams RL is available for $99.95, the Engraved M1 Abrams RL is available for $116.90.


    In the next post, our brand new RL compatible weighted shift knob, the TWM Piston!

    Piston RL

    Brand new to the TWM shift knobs line up is the TWM Piston RL. Inspired by rally and track race, this new model features the quality and durability you have come to expect out of every TWM Performance product.



    The design of this shift knob is inspired by the traditional piston shape you all know but with a smooth and unique TWM touch for the best grip and shift feeling you can get. Weighing in at 485 grams for the RL version, this new shift knob will give solid and precise shifts to your car.



    The TWM Piston shift knobs are precisely CNC machined for perfect proportion, then carefully polished on the lathe to receive one of our five unique and durable finishes.

    And the latest addition to the RL family, the Big Type R RL weighted shift knob. We have had customers asking for a Type R shift knob compatible with the reverse lockout feature of the STi, here it is.

    Engraving options

    Different engraved shift patterns are also available on most TWM Performance shift knobs. Our complete Classic series shift knobs and some of our High Caliber series can be ordered with 3 different shift patterns to fit most common cars on the road.



    As you can see on this picture, we offer the common 5 speed pattern like you see on Subaru, the 6 speed pattern of the STi and another 6 speed pattern found on MazdaSpeed models and some Toyota as well.





    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to post them in this thread, send us a pm/email, or simply give us a call at 1-877-655-0540

    Thanks!
