RX8 Copolymer Teardrop
This shiftknob is hand-made from solid acetal copolymer. This material is a hard plastic that will not absorb heat in the summer and won’t freeze in the winter unlike typical metal knobs. This provides an extremely comfortable knob all year long.
A cross between a cone and a sphere shape, the "Teardrop" style was originally requested by BoostJunkie (on IWSTI.com). This knob provides a vertical, angled, or horizontal shifting position for your hand, while maintaining a curved ergonomic top for your palm to rest on.
A custom-made brass threaded insert provides more weight and stronger threads. This insert is automatically included on the 6-speed version of this knob.
- Copolymer material will not get hot or cold!
- 2.0" diameter cylinder for comfortable size
- 3.0" height for full-hand shifting
- Rounded top for comfortable palm shifting
- 170 grams weight for a more solid shift feel
- Strong strip-resistant brass threads

- Internal threading provides a quick screw-on installation
