I have the Skunk2 shiftknob. Still gets really hot, but I like the shape and counterweight of it.

Yeah, it has more body. And it gets REALLY hot during the summer. But the counter-weight thing is awesome.

What's the stuff around it? Rubber?

Mine are attached. TWM Type-R knob.

Countersunk (a la Voodoo knobs) and Counterweighted (a la Skunk2)...the best of both worlds!

Not really. its a bit longer but not as wide. It is nice and heavy and smooth, you can literally tap it into neutral. I highly recomend it. I also bought a MoMo shifter it requiers for you to sand down the stick to make it fit right. but i didn't feel like doing that so i returned it.

Rubber surround. I need a weighted knob although I didn't really want or need the completely metal knob. But I liked the black chrome so much I figured WTH. lol

if you keep a sock in your car, put it over the knob when your not driving. it can still get hot, but not as hot, it may help in preventing some burns.

I've got a Voodoo and I love how short it is



but I want more weight so I just bought a Skunk 2 (haven't gotten it yet)

I have a Chrome Razo shifter like Skittles wants but I'm selling it because I never really cared for it.

Damn. Where can I get that TMW Type R knob? Counter sunk and weighted? How much does it weigh? I may get it and put the Skunk 2 up for sale.

440g. TWMPerformance.com is their website. If you really like the ball-style shifter, they make those as well, and they're heavy and countersunk too. Check out the A6 Leopard.

They ARE a bit more expensive, but I personally think they're more than worth it.

What size threads is that Skunk2 shift knob?

I like it!

One size on the Skunk2 website is 10 x 1.5 and the other is 12 x 1.25

Here is a pic i took just after i installed the knew boot. I didn't notice when i took the pic that the trim around the boot wasn't snapped on all the way, lol.

Its a voodoo shift knob with a spun aluminum finish, and a shift boot i bought off ebay for 10 bucks.
