: If you use a thin shifter knob you will have a much better and preciser shifting feeling than using one of those fat leather knobs.

: I am using the Alpina wood shifter knob and I find it much better that way.

Titanium Cavellino, and the additional weight really helps it across the gates. Its amazing how just this much more weight can help the momentum of the lever so much. I find that going from second to third, for instance, all I have to do is turn my hand palm side up, and nudge it out of second, and it just jumps into third...Any attempt to strong arm will as often as not wind up in hitting 5th instead of third. No problem for overrev, of course; just embarassing as hell. The reversed hand technique is great at preventing overrevs in downshifts. If someone has overreved his engine, and chalks it up to , 'Hey, that's how I drive all my cars....', then he kind of deserves what he gets, dont you think?
