Can you post a pic?

Most likely it is not counterbored for the reverse lockout.

Yes he does custom.
But expect to wait 2-3 months to get even a plain one.
I've come to the conclusion after talking to others and seeing reviews that he makes them to order.

He will make excuses about things ranging from powdercoating problems to family problems causing the delay.

The final product is definitely worth the wait, I just wish he was upfront about it taking a while.
So many people got turned off because he lies.

It feels really good. Its not too tall at all. With the extra height + the weighted knob, every shift feels effortless.

The quality of the knob itself feels really good too!

not at all. I really like the height! Not too tall to a point where the throws feels longer.

Thank you! I just got mine from someone selling theirs in the forums and I LOVE it. It's super comfortable and I actually really like the height. Super quality and looks really sharp with the red ring.

I was thinking of trying this one... I have a Raceseng Contour which is nice but its too big and heavy for my taste ( I like to feel the "gears" mesh more, so to speak).. is the Circuit much heavier than stock? Its quite a bit lighter than the Contour according to their specs.


Amazing how much easier it is to shift with the Contour weighted knob, but its so easy that its almost worrying what its doing to the linkages/trans. I can easily slot into gears the normal shift knob would force me to double clutch into...

"Circuit" will ease gear engage also from longer lever, so maybe it can be on par even if lighter. I don't like two things for it too .. it will make lever longer/closer to steering wheel indeed .. but it will also make throws longer. And i find stock knob location nice for my bad habit to rest elbow on armrest over center console.

True that... I didn't think of the longer lever giving you more mechanical leverage.


Yeah... these weighted shift knobs I think are not for me.

Decep: there is another thing i like in these knobs though - that they are assymetric shape. Imho a bit more ergonomical grip, then just round knob.

The circuit is not much heavier than stock. I think maybe 50grams more. Based on what you said you like hearing - this might be perfect. I think the shape is really amazing - mainly use overhand palm grip, but because it's a sphere / with a column you can hold it in a variety of positions very comfortably. Probably my favorite shifter I've ever used.

It feels nice, but heavy is never a word that I would describe to use it. Everyone that's tried it have said they really the way it felt. The price is a little offputting, but it's super nice quality.

I have no complaints on the ergonomics. It's really a beautifully made piece... just too heavy and makes my FR-S feel a bit dull and truck-like.

I think I'll try a voodoo knob and sell this one.
