I may have to get a Topologi for the winter months. Or just a pair of gloves, I suppose.
Just put a glove or sock on the shifter.
That'd be my trick. Unless Jarrett @ Raceseng uses the same threaded mounting fixture to do all his gate engraving... you'd need to adjust the adapter each time to swap knobs. Unless, you get the slamologi knob without the visible engraving.
Nah, put an unlubricated condom on it. Ribbed. Nice insulation, good grip. It would be the ultimate conversation piece.
Only you CCT... Just dont turn it inside out... They only work one way.
I had asked this question - you will need to adjust the knob each time.
Or just get an unengraved one, but where's the fun in that?
Don't they screw onto the adapter for the shift lever? Would a jamb nut be a possibility?
could be. But I think they use a goofy thread for the knob to screw onto. Plus, if you scroll up in the thread a bit... you'll see that for our applications, not that much of an option given the adapter vanishes inside the knob.
See what I mean...
How about a high tension spring stuffed in the receptacle on the bottom of the knob... Screw it down, the spring will compress and cause enough tension for the knob not to spin, just center the lettering and leave it?
You'd be better off with a custom made washer... but it's not that hard to adjust the adapter. There really isn't room for a spring.
Ah yes pic's help! Yeah, I'm out of easy suggestions, and seeing it there really isn't any room.
I would probably just keep it the way it is... One plus side of a metal knob in cold weather, lick your hand... You'll find out!
If winter ever ends (more snow today) here in NE PA, I promise to install the ChiliRed slammer, a Christmas present, into my wife's R53...I wil post photos with a fresh interior detail
Great write up and after reading it, I decided I had to have one. I went with the heavier Ashiko knob. Great feel and wonderful craftsmanship.
Would go nicely with one of my short shifts.
They pair fantastically with a short shifter.
Why cant they just make a large round ball with the right shift pattern engraved on the top? I love the look of the white ball in the Rat, but it is light weight plastic.
FWIW, the slammer feels better than a pure ball shifter, at least to me.
The elongated shape also helps hide the adapter hardware, too.
Agreed, though - a ball shifter does look fantastic.
thanks M Savacool for getting this looking good for me!
