WHY?

Well, to put it as simply as we can, the heavier the knob, the easier it will make shifting feel. Its not magic, its physics. Weight in motion directly relates to how an object will react to an opposing force. In this case, the opposing force is the gate pattern and counter springs that are connected to your shift arm that tell you the shift pattern of your car. The difference felt when shifting into the next gear requires far less effort due to the additional momentum created by the increased mass.


Comfort

A shift knob is one of the most touched accessories in the car, short of the steering wheel and pedals. We designed the Slammer to be just as aesthetically pleasing as it is to hold in the palm of your hand.

The shape of the Slammer is not the traditional ball shaped shift knob for a reason. The ergonomics behind an overhand grip shift position require a full form shape at the bottom and a flatter top shape to fill your palm. The combination of these elements drove the shape of the Slammer.

WRINKLE FINISH

The wrinkle finish is achieved thru a meticulous powder coating process which includes multiple stages of careful hand work. The shift knobs come off our cnc machines with a super smooth surface finish, then they are gently glass beaded to promote powder coating adhesion. A coat of electrostatically charged powder is applied and then the shift knob is precisely baked at a specific temperature to create a durable wrinkle finish!


HOW DOES IT FIT MY CAR?

THREADED ADAPTER KIT

The Slammer comes with a billet aluminum threaded adapter and threaded lock nut with a M12 x 1.25 thread to fit the shift knob to your STI / WRX shifter arm.

When installed, the threaded adapter kit allows you to adjust the height and orientation of the shift knob with ease.

  1. Awesome Shift Knob!

    By Jayman September 14, 2016

    I always thought shift knobs were just a cosmetic mod until I installed the Raceseng Slammer knob. Wow what a difference it makes! I had another aftermarket knob on which was lightweight and looked really nice but the Slammer makes shifting through the the gears much cleaner and easier! Very highly recommend! A couple quick installation notes would be to install the threaded adapters all of the way on and then use a marker to make a small mark on the top edge so you know how far you will need to adjust the threads in order to line up the knob properly since this one is gated. This leads me to my second tip which is to carefully screw on the knob onto the threaded adapter as it is made of aluminum and you will probably have to screw it on/off a couple of times before you get the alignment just right. You don't want to strip the threads on the adapter.
