Does the weight of shift knobs matter?
I’m at about 18,000 miles on my MX-5. I swapped out of the OEM knob around 2,000 miles to the Voodoo shift knob. Then about 8,000 miles later I switched to the Raceng Rondure shift knob. Each of them has a purpose. Half of the people who drive my car will prefer one over the other.
Here’s my take…since most of you already know I love scenarios.
If going to the track with many straights and giant curves, I prefer the Raceng. The weight helps shift through the gears.
If going to autocross with tight corners and knowing you’ll probably never leave 2nd gear, I’m going Voodoo. It’s light and made for quick shifting.
800 grams of pure shifting bliss. The Rondure is a tall cylindrical shift knob with sleek and modern curves. The final touch is a translucent powder coat finish that highlights the hand brushed finish under the coating. Available in your choice of smoke, blue or red. The Rondure comes with an adapter that will seamlessly mount it on your car’s shifter arm with OEM fit and finish.
A Voodoo shift knob is the fastest and easiest mod you’ll ever make to your car. Improved short-shifting capability is immediate! Voodoo shift knobs have been the enthusiast’s first choice for driving enhancement since 1992. Each Voodoo knob is a 2 inch sphere of solid aluminum with a choice of finishes.
