Cobb foust knob review

So recently I purchased the Cobb foust knob for my ford focus.
Installed and tested 8/12/13

Installed on steeda short throw triaxis shifter with 45% reduction

The knob has a great feel and compared to steedas it's light and easy to shift with. I know steedas is weighted and allows for harder throws but this allows for smooth power shifting and easy daily shifting. It's the perfect balance between my stock and steeda knob.

A+ for Cobbs knob.

Can you get the stock knob to work with the short throw kit? I actually really like the OEM knob.

Yes, I've got the Steeda shifter and bracket installed and I'm still using the stock shift knob.

This thread would have been a good candidate for the MK3 Interior Mods & Upgrades section.
