Does your Porsche exhibit rubbery and unclear shifter experience? The factory change knob is generally over looked as a supply of this sloppiness, nonetheless it really should not be - composed of primarily rubberized and plastic, the OEM knob separates and numbs the motorist through the mechanicals.
FUNCTION-FIRST Performance strives to reconnect drivers to their vehicles. Their particular Slotted Shift Knob is machined from solid billet 6061-T6 aluminum to ensure all shifting energy is utilized in the shifter, not lost to a flexing change knob. The 2-inch diameter fits firmly in hand, and is spaced high-up to keep the shifting hand clear of the change boot. The knob is designed particularly to match Porsche's rectangular shifter shaft, and attaches securely via high-hold cone point-set screws. Installing height is customizable, ranging between 0.25-inches lower and 1-inch more than stock.
The distinct slotted design reduces weight and delivers a no-slip grip, all while efficiently shedding away the heat that commonly plagues standard billet shift knobs.
Shift boot integration is certainly not an after-thought. The initial collar affixes the change boot cleanly under the foot of the knob - it doesn't "puke" out the top, just like other aftermarket and early OEM shift knobs. The silver brushed complete balances the inner trim and is anodized to protect and protect the surface.
