    Show me your knobs

    I've had my Abarth for 2 weeks now and I love just about everything about it. However I'm less than satisfied with the stock gear stick knob. It has no shape or weight to it. It just feels like a blob in the hand. What have you guys replaced yours with? There's a few on 500 Madness I like but they're a little pricey.

    I put considerable thought into this myself. I have yet to order a short shifter but I wanted to not only have a smoother feeling shift but a new weightier knob.

    I got a solid stainless knob (very hefty) and that let me remove the two pound solid metal weight from the shift linkage. The feel is more fluid and I think it has a better feel as you shift.



    I got the knob from CPR Ron who is a vendor on these forums.

    So besides Madness and their ridiculous prices, who else in the States carries OEM knobs?

    I do like NGENs knobs. I'm thinking dark gray and red shift pattern to match my car. How do their knobs feel, hold up to daily use?

    I made my shift knob from a pool ball drilled to o.390 inches. I did have to file a slot in the drilled hole to orient the knob correctly on the shift lever.
