Shift knobs for racing

Well, my shift knob kept coming off during autoX which is really annoying What is a good one that will stay put (like with a set screw or being really tight? One time that f*cker flew right into the back seat when shifting to second

guaranteed not to come off! it has a patented locking system. 3 years of use and autox it has never failed me

it also sits a lot lower on the knob so you get a shorter shift. btw if you have an aftermarket short shift kit this knob may not work for you.

I have the Rouge SSK, but it fits the factory knob, so maybe it will fit?

I'm not 100% sure but I think Doug Whalen (owner) offers a money back guarantee.

E-mail him and ask him. He has sold a lot of the shift knobs so he will know for sure.

I know in the M Coupe the shift lever is shorter (from above the pivot point) so with a short shift kit, it would not work.

Brian, in light of this past friday's autocross, this question suddenly became a lot more relevant (and urgent ).

Magically, it has stayed on the last two autoX's, lol! Maybe because I hammered on it this time! Im still going to change it though.

I've still got my UUC RKII lying around somewhere. My boot and knob are one piece now, so it's not doing me any good.

If you want it you can have it real cheap. I think it's in pretty good condition.
