flossy Shift Knob

While the stock shift knob isn't bad, I got annoyed by the feel of the stitches and wanted something with a little more weight. I wanted a knob with a good weight, unique look, wouldn't burn or freeze my hand, and didn't cost an outrageous amount.

The flossy Grip Tape Shorty fit my criteria perfectly. It's quite hefty at 500 grams, which helps a lot with the notchiness and smooths shifts out. It has a textured coating which helps keep it cool even in direct sunlight. It definitely gets warm, but it wasn't close to burning my hand like the top of the steering wheel. I opted to get an engraving of the 86 logo on the knob - it looks fantastic! One thing I'd like to do is color the cutout part in red. Shipping was fast and reasonably priced. This knob + the clutch height adjustment have greatly improved my driving experience. This is a great choice if you're looking to swap your shift knob.

Wow , that looks great.

Where did you get that 86 logo from? Please share the Hachi love.

I'd want that 86 logo in RED color though.

I chose the FITMENT + CUSTOM ENGRAVE option and emailed them the thread size of the shifter and artwork. If you have any questions or concerns, they're pretty good about responding via email.

Beautiful timing. I was just thinking how much I wanted an aftermarket shift knob but never really saw one I liked much. That one looks great!
