So ExB5, these knobs just unscrew off / screw on? That easy? How much effort? I'm wondering if with time one needs to be tightening them due to use.Guys, I noticed too that the "crunching" from 1st-2nd is nearly non-existent now, with this weighted NC knob. I tried to so some quick shifting without pausing (split sec in neutral) and I did not feel any crunchy sensation at all. Granted I did a few of those shifts when slowing down towards the garage earlier (it could be due to a hot syn transmission fluid)..however, I will do more observations on NC knob, by tomorrow.
But one thing is for sure..shifting is now effortless and smooth, as compared to the hollow, plastic light stock knob. Now, I just merely "flick" the shift knob using my index and middle finger with less force to slide it to the appropriate gear notch..and it goes in, the right and smooth way. The more I use this heavy alum/leather knob..the more I feel I made the right choice spending (the pricey) $95 dead presidents.
