Let every gear change be full of passion
What do you care about the most while driving? Simply put, it is controllability! As a driver, the parts that come into contact with the car are nothing more than the gear, steering wheel, and seats. The communication between the car and you are transmitted through these three contact surfaces. By the way, there is sound!
This article focuses on [Gear Shift Knob], a good Shift Knob needs to meet:
1. Warm in winter and cool in summer (this is really difficult, especially for metal products)
2. The length matches your own arm.
3. Good grip.
The grip of the shift knob is good or bad, and the driver of the manual transmission model feels the most. Because in daily driving, besides the steering wheel, the shift knob is the most contact. It seems that this is an unimportant part, but it always affects the efficiency and mood of every shift.
Satisfaction: It is a little longer than the original, and it feels a bit quick dial. In theory, if the length of the waving stick is longer, the shift stroke will be longer, but it can reduce the force used when shifting (leverage principle). Click here for details.
Satisfaction: Increasing the weight of the gear shift head will reduce the bounce of the gear handle, allowing you to be more precise when changing gears!
Brand: Civic Original
Satisfaction: It feels smooth in the hand and shifts smoothly.
Now more and more “pure performance cars” (referring to manual transmission cars) are equipped with a shift knob that feels very good. In addition to Civic SI, there are also Fiesta ST and Focus ST. For real car lovers, an extra pedal and manual gear can bring more driving pleasure than simple acceleration/deceleration!
