Meet Ashiko, weighing in at 735 grams (1.62lbs). The broader cylindrical surfaces make side-arm shifting effortless while providing a domed top face for palm shifting.
These custom colors usually take 2 weeks to make, but we have them in stock!
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.
Whether side-arm or palm shifting from the top, Ashiko's shape is purposefully designed to make both shifting styles more enjoyable. The side surface is designed to fit the natural curvature of your hand and fingers as they wrap around the shift knob as you dictate direction and movement. The domed top surface is intended to compliment palm shifting, giving you an ideal surface area for confident shifting.
Its not just a cylindrical shift knob. Anthropometrics, or the study of human body measurement, directly shaped the design of Ashiko. There isn't a single straight line in your body, so why should your shift knob?
The Ashiko shift knob will come with a billet aluminum threaded adapter with a M12 x 1.25 thread to fit the shift knob to your FR-S/BRZ/WRX/STI shifter arm.
HOLLOW SET SCREW
A hollow set screw is also included. The set screw allows you to easily adjust the orientation of the 6 speed pattern and the height of the shift knob. Instructions are included to help you thru this process.

Translucent blue Ashiko shift knob
It's a high quality crafted piece. The finish is flawless, the weight behind it makes for smooth shifts. Installation was extremely easy (screw off the old and screw on the new) and especially fast as this one is unengraved and you don't have to tweak it to make the gate perfectly centered (which is no big deal anyway).
The only negative is if you want a custom color it may take a couple of weeks to ship (as they are powder coated in batches). If you like the bare surface (nice choice too) you should be able to get that one quickly.
I can't say enough good things about this shift knob, especially when compared to others you really see the quality and craftsmanship. This is the second Raceseng knob I've purchased, if I had a third car I would definitely order another shift knob from Raceseng!
Nice and heavy
This shift knob is absolutely amazing! I didn't realize how much of a difference the weight of a knob could make but this has sold me. I don't think I will own any manual car without a heavy shift knob from now on. The ONLY thing to keep in mind about this is that it gets very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. Either wear gloves or do what I do and throw a koozie on it when you're not in the car/when you start driving.
I went with the red translucent finish In my 2016 wrx and I love the way it looks. The added weight definitely helps go into gear easier and it looks great!!
