Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

I'm slowly becoming a shift knob whore now that I've got another manual car...


The pedals on the new 93, the rubber fell off and I wanna put something nice/aftermarket on it...

Post up pics of your pedals...and if you have a nice shift knob (matching or not) throw a pic of it up too!

Re: Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

I really liek the voodoo knob I have for my s2000 its a big heavy ball and countersunk too.

The shift boot for the 4th gen prelude though is different. its got some kinda clip holding it up to the oem "knob"

So If I took that out and put a nicer counter sunk knob in there for example. I dont know if I'd just end up losing the boot or what?


The overall idea was to order that JTC short shifter... and a new knob, but I'm ont willing to not have a boot.

So do I buy a new shift boot or is the OEM one adaptable some how to an aftermarket knob?

as far as pedals are concerned the mugen ones are on ebay for $40 incl shipping. I highly doubt they're authentic but I read a thread or two on honda-tech and they said they're as close to the real thing as you can get... which is good enough for me.

Re: Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

You all are lazy bums! This is sposed to be a pic thread.Or it should be at least... GOSH....With that said I'm rockin the stock knob/boot and pedals...

And starbai. You can pry the ring off of the stock knob and the take it off the boot, you then just have to get creative with securing the boot with the new knob. Theres a couple threads around here for examples,I'm too lazy to look em up for ya though lol...

ANND because I bitched about pics here ya go!

Re: Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

So you guys with aftermarket shift knobs can you help me figure out what I need to buy in terms of a boot that will actually stay up, next to the knob despite there being no ring?

Just keep the stock boot and use zipties...Or some folks use a washers n such...And as far as I know that would be the case with an aftermarket boot as well....






I could be very very wrong though...But IIRC thats what most folks have to do...

Re: Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

I bought a fake type r shift knob off ebay and zip tied the inside of the stock boot to the shifter. basically you fold the top down and zip tie it on the inside to the shifter.

Re: Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

Here's my Blox torch blue shift knob. Weighted too.

This photo is with the flash on. It gets this blue-purpleish color with the flash and in strong sun light (noon)



The rest of the day it just looks blue. This is without the flash.



And about the boot, is like Lazer and 98baselude said, fold it and zip tie it.
I'm rocking the JTC short shifter and it helps with the zip tie, before the SS the boot will slide down over time, but now it stays in place perfectly thanks to the design. Look at the SS comparison photos in the thread that lilbluelude made and you will understand what I mean.

Re: Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

On the prelude I put a ctr shift boot on with my arc titanium knob and they sat perfect with each other. I am still using the knob on the s2k. Starbai I'm thinking about getting that 2" diameter one that weighs over a pound that is countersunk that pops up on s2ki sometimes for $49.99 looks great and is pretty functional. I'll post pics of my current knob tomorrow.

Re: Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

I'm rocking the stock

although I will probably get a new knob soon (old one is a little worn... previous owner had acid hands) When I do I'll probably just get a new stock one, has a good feel and looks good

Re: Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

mine. a monster knob on a PSPEC short shifter. i just hid the collar underneath the boot since the boot was too long. spherical shaped and its kinda like a small billiard ball so it doesn't burn my hand in the summer. i also have mugen pedals but no pics. am currently at school while my car is garaged 150mi away to home

Re: Official Pedal/Shift knob thread!

in my opinion the mugen shift knobs are badass i am getting a silver one for my car, but as far as the shift boot stayin up? its simple man, take off the boot and put a tiny washer at the desired height you want the boot to stay at.

eh now that I have an aftermarket knob I can *knowledgably* post up in here lol. IMO, a simple washer won't do the trick fro the stock boot. It will keep it up, yes, but it will clink around the shaft VERY annoyingly. not only that but the boot will hold itself up as it is, just a small bit below the shiftknob.

Picture evidence:


As you can see the boot collar is bigger than the shaft to accommodate the stock knob's clip/base. Thus causing the shift boot to jingle around while rowing through the gears or vibrating with the roads. Very annoying AND ghetto as fuck. Thus, I came up with a super cheap alternative( well I can't take all of the credit, I got the idea from google. specifically some of the newest gen accord owners.)

Solution you ask? Again, more picture evidence!



As you can see it isn't perfect, and that's because it is my rough draft per se. it's due to be re-done in the next week or so as the weather permits. BUT the general idea involves some epoxy, a second shift boot w/ collar, a wooden dowel measuring 7/16" and a lot of trial and error and sandpaper/dremel work. I'll be making an in-depth DIY later in the week/month, but you get the gist of it. Not saying its the all answer...just my answer ANYWAYS, thats what I would do if you are like me and don't want to shell out money for a new boot, when the stock one is fine and the new boot STILL wouldn't come with a collar. And don't want your stuff looking all ghetto, but at the cost of about $6.27...
