gotcha covered!
should have it out by tomorrow.

HEY EVERYONE!
I have only 5 more of the steel spheres pre-made right now. After these sell, I may have to raise the price to $94 shipped for Sphere , $74 shipped for Piston.

This is to cover the increase in shipping expenses for the greater-than-1-pound knobs. My shipping expense went from $4 per box to $9 per box average with these.

Next 5 buyers of the steel spheres get the cheaper rate. Everyone after would have to pay the increase in shipping.

I got mine yesterday and love it. Other than looking cool, the shifter now sits at the perfect height for me. It also shifts a lot smoother. Plus my stock knob was rattling and driving me crazy.

Just got my SS Piston. I like! Also, for the rest of you, I took a comparison photo of the stock knob, the copoly piston, and the SS piston.

WC LatheWerks, feel free to use this picture elsewhere if you find it handy. And no, I don't need attribution.

For the record, my 300ZX has a weighted factory knob. I would HIGHLY recommend a weighted knob over a non weighted knob. It makes a world of difference.

How do you like the SIZE increase in the steel knob compared to the similar copolymer one? does the extra height make it easier to use?

I haven't had a chance to drive with it yet. I can tell you that I do like the way it fits my hand.
