I put on my new razo 400g leather knob today and it feels pretty good. It wasn't my first choice in looks but several reviewers said it felt great and the extra weight shifted a lot nicer. It feels like it's too high but I can't remember what the stock knob height was. Has anyone ever cut the threads down and trimmed the shifter height?



here's a shot of it and my new pedals.

I installed the Razo shift knob and shift pedals. The shift knob has a nice heavy weight which feels great when shifting. The pedals look good, but I will have to drive some more to get a good feel for them. Here are my install pics for the pedals. I had to rig it with zip ties, but I am going back to drill holes for the base plates later. The plate system Razo had isn't exactly working as it should.

Your brake and throttle pedal look dangerously close to each other... at least in these pictures.

I almost bought that knob. I have a die on the way to try to cut the threads down and lower my knob. Im thinking about an inch off to start.

+1.
The stock pedals are small because there isn't much space between them and you don't want to run the risk of mashing them all when driving.

I think it has more to do with the perspective being the throttle sits lower/further forward than the brake pedal and the picture was taken from an angle.

I know some people have had a problem with their toe catching under the brake pedal while going from gas to brake with stock pedals. I however have not. I think this issue has been more of a problem with the DCT equipped. I drove a Jeep GC last weekend and the brake pedal in that thing was killing me. I also haven't driven an auto with that extra wide brake pedal in I can't tell you how long.

Hey, wanted to post a thank you for the tutorial. Helped clarify some things.

I'll throw in pics of the new shift knob too I guess. Sonic_Hedgehog gave me the idea.
